Times Square bomber confesses

A Connecticut man held following a dramatic last-minute arrest aboard an international flight has admitted his role in attempting to explode a car bomb in Times Square, and told investigators he received bomb-making training in the militant strongholds of western Pakistan, according to a criminal complaint filed Tuesday.



Mr. Shahzad, 30, a naturalized United States citizen from Pakistan, had apparently driven to the airport in a white Isuzu Trooper that was found in a parking lot with a Kel-Tech 9-millimeter pistol, with a folding stock and a rifle barrel, along with several spare magazines of ammunition, an official said.



He told the authorities that he had acted alone, but hours after he was arrested, security officials in Pakistan said they had arrested seven or eight people in connection with the bombing attempt.

Perhaps a bit of "profiling" is in order?

Oh, well if it's in the name of education, I don't see the problem.

Seriously this is the worst kind of terrorist, a naturalised, well-educated citizen with no criminal record living a 'normal life' and doing nothing to cause any suspicion.



It's the same profile as the idiots who blew up the London Underground in July 2005 and those moronic Iraqi doctors who tried to blow up Glasgow airport in 2007.



If they don't want all the benefits of western life why not stay in their village and watch the goats?

His western life was falling by the wayside. His house was being foreclosed on and apparently things were not going well for him at all. He was apparently a fair weather naturalised citizen.

He's a misunderstood victim of society. Only Christians deserve the type of scorn I've seen on this thread.

You're repeating yourself. And you're the only one beating that horse. Who in this group here at DtT really thinks that kind of thing?
