Man Arrested In Sting Operation For Intending To Blow Up Pentagon, Capitol

Tyler Durden's picture


Diversion time. According to The Hill, in an elaborate sting/entrapment operation, the FBI arrested Rezwan Ferdaus for plotting to use drone airplanes loaded with C4 explosives and fly them into the Pentagon and Capitol. Ferdaus was made to believe he was working with members of al Qaeda, who were
actually undercover agents. From The Hill: "According to the DOJ, Ferdaus aimed to create a devastating psychological impact with the attacks, saying at one point, “I just can't stop; there is no other choice for me." "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,” reads a DOJ press release." It is ironic how every time there is a major drop in the market or the president's rating reaches new lows we are reminded just how profoundly everyone overestimates their security, and supposedly liberty, in this (once) greatest country on earth.


Ferdaus allegedly gave the undercover FBI agents a detailed set of
attack plans “with step-by-step instructions as to how he planned to
attack the Pentagon and Capitol,” according to the Department of


Ferdaus, a Northeastern University graduate with a degree in physics,
allegedly visited Washington, D.C., in May, taking pictures of his
intended targets and proposed launch-sites for the remote-controlled
aircraft, according to the DOJ.


Ferdaus’s plan allegedly evolved
to include a “ground assault” as well, in which six people would
coordinate an automatic weapons attack with the aerial assault and
massacre whoever came into their path, according to the DOJ.


the past five months, Ferdaus has allegedly been stockpiling the
equipment he needed for his proposed attack, including a remote
controlled aircraft, 25 pounds of fake C-4 explosives, six automatic
AK-47 assault rifles and three grenades, according to the DOJ. He
allegedly kept all of it in a storage facility in Massachusetts, where
he was arrested.

Next steps: discover your inner patriotic E-Trade baby and buy, buy, buy stocks. That. And stay away from D.C.

Let's be clear about this:

Every day (literally:  Every day)  we are presented with data from Federal authorities which is either proved to be false at a later date, or data which is obviously false immediately to anyone who isn't mathematically challenged.   We the People, are lied to constantly and unwaveringly by authorities who believe that "stability" is more important than truth.   This is not opinion.  It is fact.  One only has to turn back the pages of "official news" for a few weeks, months or years to see the vast divergence between public statements and the historical facts as we later understood them.

We have heads of State who lie.   We have Federal agencies that lie.  We have the head of the ECB saying "When it gets serious you have to lie".

And now we are presented with information about a man who intended to blow up the Capitol -- and we have no evidence other than the words of ....wait for it.... Federal authorities.

I'm sorry:  No.

For all I know, this guy is guilty of posessing evidence dangerous to the banking cartel and he's being framed.  Is that a tinfoil theory?  Or is the theory that the Federal government is telling the truth even more preposterous?

The best part of this, which is left out of the above story:

“The conduct alleged today shows that Mr. Ferdaus had long planned to commit violent acts against our country,” US Attorney Carmen Ortiz said. “Thanks to the diligence of the FBI and our many other law enforcement partners, that plan was thwarted.”

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.”

Made him feel like part of a plan, a team, a cause..  Then gave him the idea of a drone attack.. then supplied him with everything he needed, then busted him.. That's how every fucking one of them have gone down.. Our government is a bunch of fucking lying pieces of shit..

FBI: alleged Christmas tree bomber thought 9/11 'was awesome'

"Mohamed Osman Mohamud, who is accused of plotting to bomb a Portland, Ore., Christmas tree lighting ceremony, was not entrapped by FBI agents, says US Attorney General Eric Holder"

gotta justify the massive expense and loss of personal "rights" to big gov.  not to mention, keep folk on the edge of their seats and divert attention from the ongoing looting. . . remember, November is an "eleven" month in an "eleven" year.

"...Ferdaus was presented with multiple opportunities to back out of his plan..."

He is entrusted with information regarding a conspiracy to commit multiple crimes, and in a position to potentially compromise any "legit" criminal organization, and perhaps its operatives. Are we to believe that he was told, that it would be OK, if he wanted to just walk away? No strings attached, just don't tell anybody? Are we to believe, under such circumstances he would not have immediately questioned the motives, and/or honesty of his new "friends" if they weren't very persuasive in their offer?

The flip side is there was an "offer he could not refuse." At that point, who in their right mind would refuse when one of those paths offers 72 virgins? What am I missing here (Other than being blinded by the depths of cynicism)? Are terrorist cells that much of a firewall, that it is reasonable to expect they would just let someone walk?

To much double jeapardy for me today.

Try him for sedition in federal court, and flip him, by making a deal to forego seeking the death penalty (treason is a capital offense) in exchange for all his notes, computer files and all other information regarding the whos, whats, whens and wheres of how he is directed.

I just hope they stick with the provocateur nonsense and don't pull another false flag.  Tricking some idiots into packing their undi's with firecrackers, or trying to blow up a tree lighting ceremony with sawdust, are much easier on my stomach. Frankly I'm expecting some Mumbai style fuckheads to run around a mall or school, based on the Denver drills of late. No doubt passports will immediatly appear, indicting a desired non Rotschild cartel country, or maybe they blame homegrown white americans.


I think that's the next step for the criminal feds. False flag attacks blamed on white christian americans to take away the 2nd ammendment. Paint the picture of white al qaeda, and make anyone that questions the ponzi/fed reserve system into a domestic terrorist.  Too bad the majority of us are waking up to the government bullshit, fear pushing, problem reaction solution garbage.

Outstanding points, Popo, although I disagree with your assertion:

" obviously false immediately to anyone who isn't mathematically challenged."

I would rephrase that to "arithmetically challenged" instead.

Also, this whole story is suspect because we all recall what occurred on 9/10/01 and the next day on 9/11/01:

The Pentagon's comptroller declared $2.3 trillion unaccounted for, and the very next morning Flight 77 crashes into the Pentagon, killing almost the entire financial management group of the Defense Intelligence Agency.  (Lucky for that one woman manager that they had sent out the e-mail at 2:00 AM on 9/11/01, and she overslept that day and received too late.)

The only two things I'm sure of:  Richard Bissell was fired from the CIA by President Kennedy, and his grand-nephew, Robert Mueller, was reappointed to the FBI directorship by Obama.

Which is also suspect......

How many terrorist threats on American soil have not involved FBI agents egging someone on to commit the act. I can think of one fool's attempt to blow his shoe and another fool who set off what amounted to a smoke bomb in Times Square. Ask your Mexican gardener how secure the US borders are and then wonder why Al Qaeda hasn't been able to pull off a single attack. There are only a limited number of possibilities as to why.

True or not, the uncertainty which is caused per your post can be seen, for example, when the college kid allegedly tried to blow up Pioneer Square in Downtown Portland, OR - Even in Portland it was just kind of like "eh" because there is no way to really know what happened given the lack of trust which our government has earned, especially as it relates to "terrorism" matters.  When someone alledgly tries to bomb your downtown and the people don't even seem worried about it that tells you the level of trust, there is no commentary needed.

How big was that rc aircraft to be able to fly 25 lbs of c-4?  Must have come in a very big box.  But then again the 757 that hit the pentagon only made a 14' diameter hole.  HMMMM!

C-4 can not penetrate a reinforced concrete wall of a Federal Building. This buildings are all designed to withstand a blast of that nature. C-4 just blowing up upon an impact is not very powerful. It requires actual knowledge about impact point's and shaping to make even 25lbs. something that would actually take something out.


C-4 is used because it's consistency allow's for it to be shaped, not because of it's high potential for expansion. Det. Cord is far better in the rapis expansion game, but is not as pliable.

Maybe he loaded up those model airplanes with jet fuel, and the C-4 was for ballast.  You gotta figure if a full-size passenger jet can take out a 110-story building, a 6-ft model can take out - oh, say - at least a 5-story building.


As for the consistency, he better have got his hands on some new stuff, because 1965-era bars are like Ivory soap coated in marshmallow paste.  And gives you the shits if you don't wash your hands before eating.

Then to fly a remote control airplane you need visual contact with it. I don't think anyone could assemble and start one close to the Capitol or Pentagon.

IF we are to believe the Government news source, looks like our guys did a right job. My congratulations to them. It is good to see that for all the Freedom we have given up since 911 some of the operation works as it should. Good news is always welcome.


In that this man is reported to have a physics background from a university would indicate that he may be a brightster. One might guess that he had the capability to plan and maybe execute a draconian death and destruction event. The drone C4 is cute and the planned slaughter of those who escaped is fairly encompassing. Worse than 911.


For us who look at Fast and Furious and other questionable Government operations this is of positive value at a much needed time. The US Government is in trouble with credibility and stability. Politically we are a divided Nation. NO ONE wants it that way (any sane person or not over motivated politico).


So let us enjoy the good news and all strive, work and push and shove and participate, bitch, gripe and fight to generate other good news.
