Muslim-American man to blow up Pentagon

A Muslim-American man pleaded guilty Friday to his role in a plot to use remote-controlled model planes packed with explosives to blow up the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol.

Rezwan Ferdaus pleaded guilty to attempting to provide material support to terrorists and attempting to damage and destroy federal buildings by means of an explosive.

The 26-year-old was arrested last year after federal employees posing as al-Qaida members delivered materials he requested, including grenades, machine guns and plastic explosives.
