Muslim planned to shoot individuals as they fled bombed DC buildings

More on the model drone jihad plot via USDOJ: US Attorney’s Office – District of Massachusetts.

The affidavit alleges the following: Ferdaus, a Northeastern University graduate with a degree in physics, began planning to commit a violent “jihad” against the U.S. in early 2010. He obtained mobile phones, each of which he modified to act as an electrical switch for an IED. He then supplied the phones to FBI UCs, who he believed to be members of, or recruiters for, al Qaeda. According to the affidavit, Ferdaus believed that the devices would be used to kill American soldiers overseas. During a June 2011 meeting, he appeared gratified when he was told that his first phone detonation device had killed three U.S. soldiers and injured four or five others in Iraq. Ferdaus responded, “That was exactly what I wanted.”

According to the affidavit, after each subsequent delivery, Ferdaus was anxious to know how well each of his detonation devices had worked and how many Americans they had killed. During recorded conversations, Ferdaus stated that he devised the idea of attacking the Pentagon long before he met with the government’s cooperating witness (CW) and UC, and that his jihad had, “started last year.”

In recorded conversations with the CW that began in January 2011, Ferdaus stated that he planned to attack the Pentagon using aircraft similar to “small drone airplanes” filled with explosives and guided by GPS equipment. According to the affidavit, in April 2011, Ferdaus expanded his plan to include an attack on the U.S. Capitol. In May and June 2011, Ferdaus delivered two thumb drives to the UCs, which contained detailed attack plans with step-by-step instructions as to how he planned to attack the Pentagon and Capitol. The plans included using three remote controlled aircraft and six people, including himself whom he described as an “amir,” i.e., an Arabic term meaning leader.

During various recorded meetings, Ferdaus envisioned causing a large “psychological” impact by killing Americans, including women and children, who he referred to as “enemies of Allah.” According to the affidavit, Ferdaus’ desire to attack the United States is so strong that he confided, “I just can’t stop; there is no other choice for me.”

In May 2011, Ferdaus traveled from Boston to Washington, D.C., conducted surveillance and took photographs of his targets (Pentagon and Capitol), and identified and photographed sites at the East Potomac Park from which he planned to launch his aircraft filled with explosives. Upon his return, Ferdaus told the UC that “more stuff ha[d] to be done,” that his plan needed to be expanded, and that he had decided to couple his “aerial assault” plan with a “ground directive.” Ferdaus indicated that his ground assault plan would involve the use of six people, armed with automatic firearms and divided into two teams. Ferdaus described his expanded attack as follows:

…with this aerial assault, we can effectively eliminate key locations of the P-building then we can add to it in order to take out everything else and leave one area only as a squeeze where the individuals will be isolated, they’ll be vulnerable and we can  dominate.

Once isolated, Ferdaus planned to “open up on them” and “keep firing” to create “chaos” and “take out” everyone. He also provided the expanded plan to the UC on a thumb drive.

Between May and September 2011, Ferdaus researched, ordered and acquired the necessary components for his attack plans, including one remote controlled aircraft (F-86 Sabre). This morning prior to his arrest, Ferdaus received from the UCs 25 pounds of (what he believed to be) C-4 explosives, six fully-automatic AK-47 assault rifles (machine guns) and grenades. In June 2011, Ferdaus rented a storage facility in Framingham, Mass., under a false name, to use to build his attack planes and maintain all his equipment.

According to the affidavit, in August 2011, the F-86 remote controlled aircraft was delivered to the Framingham storage facility. Ferdaus delivered a total of eight detonation devices to the UCs over the course of the investigation, which he built with the intention that they be used by al Qaeda operatives overseas to kill U.S. soldiers. On September 20, 2011 Ferdaus made a training video, which he provided to the UCs, demonstrating how to make “cell phone detonators.”

According to the affidavit, at today’s meeting the UCs allowed Ferdaus to inspect the explosives and firearms (a quantity of C-4 explosives, three grenades, and six fully-automatic AK-47 assault rifles) that the UCs delivered, and that Ferdaus had requested for his attack plan. After inspecting the components, Ferdaus brought them to his storage unit, took possession of the explosives and firearms, and locked them in his storage unit. Ferdaus was then immediately arrested.

Although Ferdaus was presented with multiple opportunities to back out of his plan, including, being told that his attack would likely kill women and children, the affidavit alleges that Ferdaus never wavered in his desire to carry out the attacks.

If convicted Ferdaus faces up to 15 years in prison on the material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization charge; up to 20 years in prison on the charge of attempting to destroy national defense premises; and a five year minimum mandatory in prison and up to 20 years on the charge of attempting to damage and destroy buildings that are owned by the United States, by using an explosive. On each charge Ferdaus also faces up to three years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine.

  1. We should enact the death penalty for terrorism and subversion. I find it disgusting that my tax dollars will go to housing this slime.

  2. This type of thinking is quite typical of Arab Islam.Hindu(ie non-Arab) Islam of non-Arab Asia is free from this type of anti-West prejudice, that is why it proves that Hindu Islam is the Real Islam and Arab Islam is sheer Imperialism.
    The great ancient tradition of non-Arab Asia’s non-Arab Islam must be fully rediscovered and researched into as This most authentic and standard tradition of Hindu Islam is neither Jihadi in nature and nor anti-West.Hindu Islam is most liberal, democratic,non-violent, and peaceful.Hindu Islam’s most representative figure is Gandhi who is today adored as great man.

  3. There is a DEATH PENALTY FOR TREASON on the books. The ROSENBERGS were convicted of treason and were hanged back in the 40’s.

  4. This man was radicalized where? In a Mosque no doubt. A Mosque financially and spiritually supported by Saudi Arabia….remember the 13 hijackers were Saudi’s. Mosque are military outposts that recruit, indoctrinate, and train soldiers for war against America. All practicing Muslims are guilty of sedition because they fight to over turn our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

    We need to revoke the special religious Visa’s for these Imams. America needs to arrest all those who are advocating Sharia for treason and sedition. This is a different kind of war. Not one with Divisions of soldiers on a battlefield. Instead, our enemy is Islam itself. We must acknowledge this threat and fight.

    • level the mosque. Cut all the free money it gets to kill us. Repatriate all the members each time this crap comes up.

      bye bye bonzo

  5. “Ferdaus faces up to 15 years in prison on the material support and resources to a foreign terrorist organization charge;”

    Considering most islamic terrorists are often young AND that people are quite capable into their old age, isn’t 15 years way too few for such a charge? When was that sentence created and when what will it take to have it changed?

    And if he’d been acting completely alone, what then?
