Attack Foiled

It seems that some Islamic jihadist was planning an attack on the US. He wanted to fly remote-controlled aircraft into the Pentagon and the Capitol building.
Rezwan Ferdaus, a 26-year-old U.S. citizen and Northeastern University graduate, was nabbed in an elaborate FBI sting after he told undercover officers exactly how he planned to arm "small drone airplanes" with explosives in order to hit the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol building before opening fire on the survivors, federal officials said in a statement.
He's a US citizen, too, which makes it awfully dicey.
"Ferdaus envisioned causing a large 'psychological' impact by killing Americans, including women and children, who he referred to as 'enemies of Allah,'" the DOJ's statement said. "According to the affidavit, Ferdaus' desire to attack the United States is so strong that he confided, 'I just can't stop; there is no other choice for me.'"
Enemies of Allah? That says a lot. He's not only a radical Islamist, he's a traitor. I say that he should be charged with treason, given a fair trial, taken out and shot.

To encourage the others.

Call me jaded, but I'm not impressed with his plan.

That his plan was unworkable is insufficient reason for not hanging the SOB. The sooner the better
