So what we have here is a number of agendas all conveniently packed into one false flag:
Problem-Reaction-Solution based justification for new fascist laws requiring your real name, & eventually biometrics to get on the Internet.
Problem-Reaction-Solution based justification to once again equate the unalienable right to be truly anonymous with "terrorism".
Problem-Reaction-Solution based justification to behaviorally profile well-to-do middle class communities, people---a big shift from the dregs of society that the FBI/CIA/MIC uses in their false flags. Shifting from using mentally retarded individuals, or otherwise low IQ patsies--to patsies with advanced degrees so that they can say "see, anyone can be a terrorist".
Problem-Reaction-Solution based justification to not only remove the capability of free citizens from lawfully surveilling public officials to make sure that the law enforcers follow the law themselves, but also to "get the hell out of the way" for the MIC's micro and nano UAV's that ARE ACTUAL WEAPON SYSTEMS, with infinitely more advanced technology, and capability to murder humans and destroy buildings.
Problem-Reaction-Solution based justification to again demonize THUMB DRIVES as the equivalent of "WMD", which will result in more surveillance (or just now openly announced surveillance, because they now have an avenue with which to fraudulently convince you that it is necessary).
This theme of "the educated terrorist in an affluent neighborhood"
was showcased in an episode of NCIS--where the MIC setup a false flag fake patriot group, and the ringleader was from an affluent, upscale neighborhood. And the NCIS show bragged about the anti-Constitutional surveillance and data mining they did to that entire community population in order to "catch the bad guy" and "keep everyone safe"--4th amendment be damned to hell.
I cannot believe how completely f*cking in your face over-the-top obvious this bullshit is that they pass off as an actual story of a real apprehension of a "national security threat":http://boston.cbslocal.com/2011/09/28/ashland-terror-suspect-who-is-rezwan-ferdaus/
Ashland Terror Suspect: Who Is Rezwan Ferdaus?
September 28, 2011 11:59 PM
ASHLAND (CBS) – Rezwan Ferdaus had run into some minor trouble in the past, but neighbors in his quiet Ashland neighborhood are terrified to hear the disturbing accusations he’s currently facing. The 26-year-old was arrested on Wednesday and charged with plotting to crash explosive-laden remote control planes into the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol.
According to neighbors, the home that federal agents raided belongs to Ferdaus’ parents. They moved in 14 years ago and Rezwan still lived with them. People living on affluent, leafy Coburn Drive, are finding it hard to believe one of their neighbors is now charged in a terror plot. “I just can’t believe it, awful, it’s just beyond comprehension,” said one woman.
Another woman said, “One of most exciting things in Ashland is to see squirrels cross the street. This is quite different, this is quite different.” According to law enforcement sources, while a student at Ashland High School, Rezwan was said to have routinely turned his back during pledge. A man who went to high school with Ferdaus, and didn’t want to be identified said, “I was completely shocked, couldn’t believe it, he always seemed like a nice, quiet kid to me.
He was a very smart kid, very into music, very musically talented.” In Ashland High’s class of ’03, Ferdaus was voted most musical, but described as shy, not especially popular. Ferdaus is also the same person who, in 2003, police suspected of climbing to the roof of Ashland High School and burning the American flag, although he was never charged over that incident.
Interestingly, he signed his yearbook entry with a peace symbol, and quoting Ghandi, offering peace and friendship and desire to work together for unity and love. Rezwan is a U.S. citizen and went to Northeastern University, graduating in 2008 with a degree in Physics. It’s unclear whether he was employed.
Massachusetts Man Charged With Plotting Attacks on Pentagon, U.S. Capitol
By Chris Dolmetsch - Sep 29, 2011 12:01 AM ET
A 26-year-old Massachusetts man was charged with plotting to use remote-controlled planes filled with plastic explosives for a terrorist attack on the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol in Washington.
The suspect, Rezwan Ferdaus, a U.S. citizen from Ashland, was arrested yesterday and charged with attempting to destroy national defense premises, attempting to damage and destroy buildings owned by the U.S. government and attempting to provide material support and resources to al-Qaeda, the U.S. Justice Department said in a statement.
A graduate of Northeastern University in Boston with a physics degree, Ferdaus began plotting a “violent jihad” against the U.S. early last year, the Justice Department said in the statement. He modified mobile phones to act as electrical switches for an improvised explosive device and then supplied them to undercover FBI agents whom he believed to be members or recruiters for al-Qaeda, the department said.
Ferdaus believed the devices would be used to kill U.S. soldiers overseas and appeared “gratified” when told in June 2011 that his first device had killed three soldiers and wounded four or five others in Iraq, the Justice Department said.
Ferdaus told a cooperating witness in recorded conversations that began in January that he planned to attack the Pentagon with “small drone airplanes” filled with explosives and guided by GPS equipment, the Justice Department said. He expanded his plan in April to include an attack on the U.S. Capitol.
In May and June, Ferdaus delivered to the undercover agents two thumb drives containing plans for the attack, including step-by-step instructions on how he would strike the Capitol and the Pentagon, the Justice Department said in the statement.
He traveled to Washington from Boston in May and took photographs of the two buildings, as well as sites at East Potomac Park where he planned to launch the aircraft, the Justice Department said. He also planned to use six people armed with automatic firearms to sow chaos in the aftermath of the attack.
Ferdaus selected two remote-controlled airplanes for his attack plans, both of which were scaled-down versions of the F-4 Phantom and F-86 Sabre fighter jets, and acquired one of them, said Gary S. Cacace, an FBI special agent, in a criminal complaint. The planes are 5 feet to about 6 1/2 feet long.
Ferdaus created a false identity under the name “Dave Winfield” for the purpose of acquiring the remote-controlled airplane, opened a PayPal account with that name and made up a cover story to explain why he wanted to buy the plane, telling representatives of a Florida distributor that he was buying it for his son, Cacace said in the complaint.
Ferdaus rented a storage unit in Framingham, Massachusetts, under a false name in June 2011, and the remote-controlled plane was delivered there in August, the Justice Department said.
On Sept. 27, on the morning before his arrest, the undercover officers delivered 25 pounds of what Ferdaus believed to be C-4 plastic explosive, six fully automatic AK-47 machine guns and grenades, the Justice Department said. Ferdaus was arrested yesterday after he brought the explosives to the storage unit and locked them inside.
Ferdaus, who isn’t married and has no children, considers the U.S. an “enemy of Allah,” Cacace said in the complaint. He has a criminal record and has served time in prison, Cacace said.
“With the goal of terrorizing the United States, decapitating its ‘military center’ and killing as many ‘kafirs,’ i.e., an Arabic term meaning non-believers, as possible, Ferdaus extensively planned and attempted to attack the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol,” Cacace said in the complaint.
Ferdaus’ conduct is “not reflective of a particular culture, community or religion,” U.S. Attorney Carmen Ortiz in Boston said in a statement. “In addition to protecting our citizens from the threats and violence alleged yesterday, we also have an obligation to protect members of every community, race and religion against violence and other unlawful conduct.”
Ferdaus faces as long as 20 years in prison if convicted of the most serious charges. He made an initial appearance in federal court in Worcester, Massachusetts, yesterday and is being held pending a detention hearing scheduled for Oct. 3, Brandy Donini-Melanson, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Boston, said in a phone interview.
Ferdaus’s attorney, Catherine K. Byrne of the Federal Public Defenders’ office in Boston, didn’t immediately return a voice-mail message seeking comment on the charges.
The public was never in danger from the explosive devices, which were controlled by undercover FBI employees, and the defendant was “closely monitored” while his plot developed, the Justice Department said in the statement.
“The fact that Ferdaus is a very well-educated physicist should serve as a reminder to us that that the threat of Islamic terrorism transcends socioeconomics and does not only emanate from the poor and underprivileged,” Republican Congressman Peter King of New York, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said in a statement.
The case is U.S. v. Ferdaus, 11-mj-4270, U.S. District Court, District of Massachusetts (Boston.)
