Ashland man charged with plot to blow up Pentagon, U.S. Capitol

http://www.metrowestdailynews.com/ar...#ixzz1ZKIURURK

An Ashland man who planned to attack the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol with a remote-controlled aircraft filled with plastic explosives was arrested today in Framingham on federal charges, the U.S. Department of Justice said.

Re: Man charged with plot to blow up Pentagon, U.S. Capitol

It's hard to get the true story when patriotism enters the fray. These days anyone who dares to open their mouth in the USA and say something mildly provocative or buying any marzipan type substance could be interpreted as being an "Enemy of the State", especially if Fox News are covering the story.

Maybe this guy was just a lousy drummer and had felt that he had lost touch with the other band members who couldn't relate to his new musical direction.

Re: Man charged with plot to blow up Pentagon, U.S. Capitol

ok... maybe he was lead on a bit by his "associates" who happened to be FBI agents but saying "this is exactly what I wanted, I feel blessed" after being told one of his devices killed three soldiers is in my little opinion abit more than mildly provocative.


I blame the town water myself.

And of course his name is "Rezwan", and this comes right at a time when the government is about to shut down. let the conspiracy theories roll.
