Physics Grad Pleads Guilty in Model Plane Plot
A Massachusetts man accused of staging a plot to attack the U.S. Capitol Building and the Pentagon with explosive-laden model airplanes pleaded guilty Tuesday to two federal charges, the Christian Science Monitor reports.
Under a plea deal, Rezwan Ferdaus is to serve 17 years in prison and 10 years of supervised release, if the federal judge in Boston signs off, according to the Christian Science Monitor.
Ferdaus is a physics graduate who was arrested in September after undercover FBI agents posed as Al Qaeda operatives and delivered to him explosives and assault rifles.
Ferdaus told authorities he wanted to terrorize the country in the name of jihad, the Christian Science Monitor reported.
