Moroccan National Plotted to Fly Bomb into Connecticut Federal Building – Michael P. Mayko (Connecticut Post)
(dailyalert.org, Apr. 11, 2014)
El Mehdi Semlali Fahti, 27, a Moroccan national, was arrestedMonday by FBI agents for plotting to turn a radio-controlled model airplane into a drone-like flying bomb and crash it into a school and a Connecticut federal building.
Fahti told an undercover agent in five recorded conversations that he studied the bomb attack operation for months, and had made a chemical bomb while in high school in Morocco, court documents charge.
Fahti is accused of making false statements seeking political asylum while facing deportation to his native Morocco.
In one recording, Fahti says he “laughs because he cannot believe the judge believed him” in allowing him to seek refuge in the U.S. for political reasons.
