  1. Times Square Bomb Suspect Almost Got Away
    FBI Says Faisal Shahzad Was on Plane That Was Taxiing to Runway

    May 4, 2010—

    Accused Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad admitted his involvement in the terror plot to FBI agents who arrested him late Monday at New York's JFK airport, federal officials tell

    Shahzad, who had been the subject of a huge manhunt, almost made it out of the country on a Emirates flight to Dubai, with a planned connection onward to Pakistan, according to the officials.

    "He appeared real close to getting away," one federal official said. "The plane was buttoned up. Backed away from the jetway."

    Authorities said that despite the manhunt, his passport had not been flagged and he was able to buy a ticket with cash and clear airport security.

    FBI agents discovered Shahzad's car parked in a short-term lot at JFK airport Monday evening and searched for his name on airline passenger manifests.

    The flight had begun to taxi for takeoff when FBI agents ordered it to return to the gate where Shahzad and two others were taken into custody. The other two were later released, authorities said.

    Authorities said they found a 9 mm handgun in Shahzad's car and two loaded ammunition magazines.

    Shahzad was questioned for several hours by the FBI agents and, according to WABC-TV, said he had acted alone in carrying out his attempted bomb plot in Times Square.

    Shahzad is a naturalized American citizen, who had recently returned from a five-month trip to Pakistan and the city of Peshawar, a known jumping off point for al Qaeda and Taliban recruits.

    At a press conference early Monday morning, Attorney General Eric Holder said, "It's clear that the intent behind this terrorist act was to kill Americans." He urged America to "remain vigilant."

    Federal authorities told ABC News that they tracked Shahzad over the last two days using evidence found in the Nissan Pathfinder left at the scene and in the unexploded bomb components.

    According to authorities, Shahzad bought the vehicle on April 24, one week before the bombing attempt, through an Internet ad placed by a Connecticut family.

    Members of the family told the FBI that Shahzad paid $1,300 for the vehicle in $100 bills after taking the Pathfinder on a test drive in the parking lot of a Bridgeport shopping center. FBI agents recovered a shopping center surveillance tape that they say shows Shahzad driving the car, authorities said.

    He later had the windows on the car tinted, officials said, prior to driving it to New York City last Saturday.

    Federal law enforcement officials said at least three other people close to Shahzad were also under scrutiny in connection with the case.

    Times Square Bomb

    One Monday, ABC News reported that there is growing evidence the bomber did not act alone and had ties to radical elements overseas, with one senior official telling ABC News there are several individuals believed to be connected with the bombing.

    Officials declined to provide the specifics that led them to believe there were overseas links to a larger plot.

    Authorities said a clue in the investigation was a video posted online early Sunday morning by persons in Connecticut, who may have been involved in the bomb attempt. The video, posted on a site registered one day before the attack, has the Taliban in Pakistan claiming responsibility for the attempted bombing.

    Though a Taliban leader thought killed in a U.S. drone strike resurfaced in the video threatening attacks on U.S. cities, and the Taliban has claimed credit for the failed New York attack, U.S. authorities are skeptical.

    The would-be bomber packed the car with more than 100 pounds of fertilizer, but not the kind that would explode, police said.

    Had the bomber chosen the right kind of fertilizer, the bomb would have had the force of more than 100 pounds of TNT. But instead of ammonium nitrate, the kind of fertilizer used by Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh, the bomber used a harmless fertilizer, New York City Police Department spokesman Paul Browne said.

    The license plate on the car was apparently stolen from an auto repair shop outside Bridgeport, Conn., according to law enforcement officials.

    The authorities told ABC News that the previous owner provided a description of the man who bought the car, and told investigators the vehicle was sold for several hundred dollars in cash, with no written records identifying the purchaser.

    The license plate found on the Pathfinder also came from Connecticut, #98CY09, according to photographs of the vehicle.
  2. Shocker for sure! Another brainwashed jerk-off from the middle east. It must be embarassing for him as he is not even good at terrorism. If you're going to be a terrorist, at least learn how to make a proper bomb first! The gods will be disappointed with this one.

    With Katie Couric drawing him out, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg agreed the Times Square car bombing was likely “homegrown” as he proceeded, in an interview excerpt run on Monday's CBS Evening News, to speculate it could have been placed by “somebody with a political agenda who doesn't like the health care bill or something. It could be anything.”

    Could be “anything,” but the first thing Bloomberg thinks of are those who don't like ObamaCare, presumably conservatives or Tea Party activists.

    Audio: MP3 clip

    From part of Couric's interview with the mayor aired on the Monday, May 3 CBS Evening News:

    KATIE COURIC: Law enforcement officials don't know who left the Nissan Pathfinder behind, but, at this point, the mayor believes the suspect acted alone.

    MAYOR MICHAEL BLOOMBERG: If I had to guess -- 25 cents -- this would be exactly that, somebody-

    COURIC TO BLOOMBERG: A home-grown?

    BLOOMBERG: Home-grown, maybe a mentally deranged person or somebody with a political agenda that doesn't like the health care bill or something. It could be anything. version of Couric's interview.

    Wonder if he still gets 72 virgins?
  5. I think the general rule of thumb is 36 for a botched attempt. Provided you pray, facing south-west, at least eight times per day. Also, the phrase "death to America" must be repeated at least four times per day.

    Failure to perform any of these meaningful rituals will subsequently reduce the number of virgins available at time of death.
