Man accused of Pentagon plot pleads not guilty

A 26-year-old U.S. citizen accused of plotting to use model airplanes in attacks on the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol pleaded not guilty in federal court Monday.

Authorities claim Rezwan Ferdaus - a resident of Ashland, Massachusetts - planned to use large, remote-controlled model aircraft filled with C-4 plastic explosive against the targets. He faces a maximum sentence of 100 years in prison if convicted.

Ferdaus was arrested last week.

    Why wasn't it mentioned in this report that this guy had connections with Muslim terrorists. I don't recall which group. At least that is what I read in another report, that is how they caught up with him. The terrorist were giving him information, money and supplies.

      I do not think so.

      In this sting operation as in others, agents were posing as instigators.

    Actually, I find that people who hide behind the bible to justify their evil thoughts and those who see satan in every move another makes are the real christian terrorists.
