Prison For Model-Plane Plotter

November 1, 2012 by  

Prison For Model-Plane Plotter, A man was sentenced Thursday to 17 years in prison in a plot to fly remote-controlled model planes packed with explosives into the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol.

Rezwan Ferdaus, 27, of Massachusetts pleaded guilty in July to attempting to provide material support to terrorists and attempting to damage and destroy federal buildings with an explosive.

Ferdaus delivered a long, soft-spoken statement to the federal court Thursday in which he offered no apology for his actions but thanked his family and friends for supporting him. He said he has accepted his fate and can “dream of a brighter future.”

Ferdaus was arrested last year after federal employees posing as members of al-Qaida delivered materials he requested, including grenades, machine guns and plastic explosives.

Authorities have said the public was never in danger because the explosives were always under the control of federal agents.

Ferdaus grew up in Massachusetts and has a physics degree from Northeastern University.
