Man arrested in ‘step-by-step’ plot to blow up Capitol, Pentagon
The FBI arrested and charged a man Wednesday for allegedly plotting to blow up the Capitol and the Pentagon.
The 26-year-old Massachusetts man, Rezwan Ferdaus, was arrested as part of an FBI sting operation in which he was made to believe he was working with members of al Qaeda, who were actually undercover agents.
Yeah, the old killing for Allah thing, once again. But you can't just assume that this is typical of Muslims, even though they're the only religious group, you know killing people:
According to the DOJ, a focal point of Ferdaus’s plots revolved around “jihad” and his desire to carry out the will of Allah.
The U.S. attorney for the District of Massachusetts, Carmen M. Ortiz, stressed that any underlying religious motives to Ferdaus’s actions should not reflect on the Muslim culture at-large.
“I want the public to understand that Mr. Ferdaus’s conduct, as alleged in the complaint, is not reflective of a particular culture, community or religion,” Ortiz said.
Yeah, we wouldn't want this to reflect poorly on the Religion of Peace, would we?
Maybe the U.S. Attorney should spend his time prosecuting this monster and less time counseling the public on how they should feel.
