A federal magistrate judge has ordered Ashland terror suspect Rezwan Ferdaus held without bail, ruling that Ferdaus, who allegedly plotted to fly small, remote-controlled planes into the Pentagon, was a danger to the community. “Simply put, what makes Ferdaus a significant danger to the community is not whether his plan would have worked or whether he had means to implement it, but that it was his strong desire to see his plan carried out,” US Magistrate Judge Timothy J. Hillman wrote in a decision issued today. Ferdaus, 26, a US citizen and Northeastern University graduate, is facing charges of attempting to damage and destroy a federal building by means of an explosive, attempting to damage and destroy national defense premises, receiving firearms and explosive materials, and attempting to provide material support to terrorists and a terrorist organization.
