This sounds like a HIGHlarious Daily Show parody but it's NOT a joke!
Rezwan Ferdaus attempted to wage jihad against the U.S. government with an air fleet of remote-controlled airplanes!
The 26 year-old physics graduate from Northeastern University planned to fill these model planes with C-4 and fly them into the Pentagon.
Rezwan, also an American citizen, thankfully isn't a very effective terrorist. Law enforcement officials posing as Al Qaeda agents caught him and are now prosecuting him to the fullest extent of the law.
The would-be bomber pled guilty to two terror charges and will now spend the next 17 years in a federal prison.
We're glad he's off the streets!
