Hey, Another Plot to Blow Up Pentagon & the Religion is (DRUMROLL) . . .

By Debbie Schlussel

Yup, you guessed it.  The “Religion of Peace.”  A Muslim U.S. Citizen, Rezwan Ferdaus, a grad student, planned to blow up the Pentagon using small drone planes.


Federal authorities today arrested and charged a 26-year-old Ashland man with plotting to damage the Pentagon and US Capitol with a remote-controlled aircraft filled with C-4 plastic explosives.

Rezwan Ferdaus, a US citizen, was also charged with attempting to provide material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization, specifically to al-Qaida, in order to carry out attacks on US soldiers stationed overseas, the US attorney’s office said in a statement.

And here’s my fave part, courtesy of U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz:

She added, “I want the public to understand that Mr. Ferdaus’ conduct, as alleged in the complaint, is not reflective of a particular culture, community or religion. In addition to protecting our citizens from the threats and violence alleged today, we also have an obligation to protect members of every community, race, and religion against violence and other unlawful conduct.”

Uh-huh. Keep tellin’ yourself that, honey. The perpetrators are almost always from one religion, one culture, one ethnic background. And the obligation to protect the rest of us from them isn’t really taken that seriously, as I can tell you from personal experience.

Federal prosecutors said that Ferdaus, a Northeastern University graduate with a physics degree, began planning to commit violent “jihad” against the US in early 2010.

He allegedly obtained mobile phones and modified them to act as switches for improvised explosive devices, and provided them to FBI undercover agents, believing the devices would be used against US soldiers overseas. Prosecutors said that in a June 2011 meeting, he “appeared gratified” when he was told that one of his triggers had killed three US soldiers and injured four or five others in Iraq.

“That’s exactly what I wanted,” Ferdaus allegedly said. Ferdaus delivered more of the devices and was anxious each time to know if they had worked and how many Americans had been killed.

In recorded conversations beginning in January, Ferdaus allegedly also told a cooperating witness that he planned to attack the Pentagon using aircraft similar to “small drone airplanes” laden with explosives and guded by GPS devies.

In April, he allegedly expanded his plans to include attacking the US Capitol. In May and June, he allegedly delivered two thumb drives to agents that contained detailed plans of his proposed attacks.

In May, he allegedly traveled to Washington, conducting surveillance and taking photos of targets, as well as his proposed launch site, East Potomac Park. He told an undercover agent after his Washington visit that he wanted to couple his “aerial assault” with an armed ground attack, involving six people with automatic firearms.

Between May and September, prosecutors said, he ordered and acquired materials for his plans, including a remote controlled aircraft. He also received from undercover agents on Tuesday “(what he believed to be) C-4 explosives, six fully-automatic AK-47 assault rifles (machine guns) and grenades,” prosecutors said in a statement.

One Muslim grad student out of many thousands in America–some U.S. citizens like he is and others here on student visas–wishing and/or actually planning to do the same.

Thanks for the information again DS, once again you’re spot on as usual. I heard this story on 710 WOR radio where I live in the New York City, NY area, and so far, I haven’t seen or heard this news story elsewhere in the MSM! And I doubt that I’ll see this story in the NY Daily News (which the NYDN completely sucks with their left wing crap) or in the NY Post tomorrow?

Watch the lefties say this guy wasn’t a real threat, and only got the materials he needed because the FBI handed them to him.

They probably wouldn’t say the same if it was a christian fanatic or white supremacist.

I wonder what would happen if these continual attacks and plots were being carried out southerners. The inaction of the government exposes their intentions.

    Hollywood and the leftist enclaves of NYC & the left coast sure wish it was that way.

Yup. The people like the one attacked in St. Louis, the rare moderates are the exception.

Rezwan Ferdaus, are much more typical. He is a US citizen. But there are thousands of others, in the American great beyond, who aren’t. And not all of them are going to be caught by the Famous But Incompetent.

Its the Islam, stupid!

Yes, the dishonor roll of Islam just grows larger and larger, and we have inane drones like U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz who seem to be more concerned about giving us diversity statements than anything else. I would call her a political whore, but that would be an insult to prostitutes who are far less offensive and decidedly more honest than Ms. Ortiz apparently is. When a system of justice is more solicitous of the needs of a criminal suspect than for those of an actual or potential victim, it is perverse. The people who willingly engage in such deceptive activities are no better than a judge or prosecutor who takes bribes, since they thwart the cause of justice being served just as grossly. Those who try to narrow down evil to a fluke or obscure it entirely are corrupt and callous no matter what rationale they offer for their behavior.

oh, Debbie you always give away the answer. Of course it is always “C” – muslim.

YAY NORTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY! I knew that my old school would produce someone that would do something with their lives! Wonder what he did on his co-op?

Check out this report from Boston’s Fox affiliate. Terrorists sure do love the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Did he take any classes that Bill Ayers taught? Maybe he went to Jeremiah Wright’s church for a spell?

Just askin’ the important questions.

I want to know how many murders are going unsolved because the police refuse to investigate whether muslims are committing them against us infidels. You’re telling me a guy as active as this never shot anybody just for laughs? The police need to compile ALL the seemingly random murders in this country, the ones with no apparent motive, and look for a muslim connection.

David Lanham on September 29, 2011 at 5:39 am

Thank you Debbie for telling THE TRUTH.

This has me thinking. With their fascination in using planes to blow sh*t up, I’m wondering if these terrorists a**holes had anything to do with the downing of TWA Flight 800(?)? The one of the coast of New York/Jersey back in the 90’s. What says you? Thanks –

The story says that this terrorist wannabe was given explosives and guns by the FBI. I wonder if this was part of ‘Fast and Furious’ also.

Jarhead on September 29, 2011 at 8:18 am

My neighbor told me that the terrorist worked as a QC inspector for a major pharmacuetical company with offices in Framingham and Westborough MA

Barry Douglas on September 29, 2011 at 9:34 am

I wish someone would, in public, confront people like Carmen Diaz and run through all busts like thiw where it is a muslim who perpetrates thes kinds of acts and then ask them to repeat that statement Ms. Diaz was quoted as saying. Then ask her to explain her rationale for syaing such things. Because nobody is being fooled, “its the jihadi stupid”

jake49 on September 29, 2011 at 10:34 am

The article was in my local rag. “American citizen” is the new favorite descriptive of these Muslim terrorists. WTFC if he’s an American citizen? People like this useful idiot, Ortiz, have to be the first to go with the new administration in 2012. Bush’s biggest error was retaining all the Clintonistas. If the Obambabots are NOT destroyed. purged, eliminated, nothing will change.

JeffT on September 29, 2011 at 11:41 am

Actually, the local Washington, D.C. media here gave extensive coverage to this case. If only the same could be said of U.S. Attorney Ortiz.

Well, sure fooled the Paulbots.

Great article on this incident

Two more Jews win Nobel Prize in Medicine. 159 Jews have won Nobels in Economics, Medicine, Physics or Chemistry. 13 in Literature, 9 in Peace. 13 million Jews.

How many Moslems will win hard science Nobels this year? There has been ONE in World History. 1.6 Billion Muslims, ONE Hard Science winner. (The other handful have won in Peace (Sadat deserved his—won by 5 total, including Yasser Arafat) and two in Literature.

Show me any religion that says they are a ‘religion of peace’ and I’ll show you a thousand examples proving them wrong.
