Possible Pentagon Bomber Arrest Made

Rezwan Fredaus, a 26 year-old physics graduate, was arrested last week in Ashland, MA for his connection with a plot to damage the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol with the aid of remote control airplanes. He supposedly planned to equip 3 of them with C-4 plastic explosives and guide them by GPS from the East Potomac Park. A model of an F-86 Sabre fighter jet was found in a storage facility there that had been rented under a false name. A Federal Grand Jury indicted Fredaus last week.

Considering how easily these model planes and how to instructions for C4 can be found online, this possible crime was thankfully averted.
