Pakistan native is main suspect in bomb attempt

From Fox 5:

Federal authorities have identified a person of interest in the investigation into the Times Square bomb plot, described as a naturalized American citizen who recently returned from Pakistan, Fox News confirmed Monday.

Investigators also reportedly have been looking through phone records of possible suspects and found at least one call made from the U.S. to overseas that piqued their interest.

At the same time, the Washington Post reported an FBI-led terrorism task force has now taken over the investigation, citing a senior law enforcement source.

The paper said the federal task force was taking charge “because of indications it was connected to international terrorism,” according to the source.

See something, say something.

A hundred guys loitering by a playground. What? That is normal?
Forget 311. Call 911.

I just love Arizona. I go camping there all the time. Tucson, Sedona, Bisbee. The Grand Canyon State. I can't wait to visit again for the umpteenth time. Highly recommended for your next vacation.

So, do you think the "Anonymous" moron who typed this earlier today will admit he's wrong?:

The fact that some of you immediately assume it is a Muslim just shows how bigoted you are.

No fool, it just shows that we all have brains, and we're not slaves to the P.C. indoctrination sessions that you obviously are!

Stay vigilant.

PS Deka: The Anon "he" has to be a "she." My personal psychological profile. Or it's an avid Islamist. Does it really matter at this point?

Where's pope Urban II when you need him!

Cut Eric's nuts off with a dull blade! The "man" is a disgrace in servicing our Country.

My Nation is cowardly!? Up yours with glass shrapnel, Holder!!!

Yes profiling is a must against these animals & criminals trespassing in my country.

Pickup Bloomberg first first for gross negligence with the lives of 8 million people with this Sanctuary City bullshit.
He's crazy and unfit for duty. This policy is pure cultural, economic and physical suicide on all fronts !

You can bet for this one Islamic terrorist on a mission there are at least 10 more that cant be traced

Oh yeah? Just for that I'm going to layoff a few hundred more cops. We'll see who's negligent now!

This will just allow other extremists (who happen to be religious zealots as well, in their own delightful Caucasian fashion) free airtime for a few weeks to make vast generalizations about brown people and why our country would be so much happier if they weren't allowed to live here.

I expect things will be less crowded on your next visit.

I don't know what you use as an information source..maybe you are blinded by conservative bilge..or just dumb.

Whatever the issue -reputable- sources CNN and BBc are reporting:

"New York (CNN) -- A U.S. citizen has been arrested in the Times Square bombing probe, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced early Tuesday.

Faisal Shahzad, 30, was arrested at JFK airport in New York late Monday as he prepared to board a flight to Dubai, United Arab Emirates"

http://edition.cnn.com/2010/CRIME/05/04/new.york.car.bomb/?hpt=T1

You might want to withhold judgment as to this administration's competence before actually getting real information.

As for Dubai, not surprised at all. Shit attracts flies.

Yes, a naturalized U.S. Citizen. I'm sure we'll find out soon that he grew up or lived in vibrant diverse Queens at some point.

We'll just have to be patient--remember Richard Jewell and how he was portrayed in the News? That man was smeared terribly and has still not recovered.

In the meantime, I hope they have the worm and if so, they can start rolling up his entire network, but let's proceed with caution until we are certain.

- Depends on your idea of recovered...He's dead (2007).

Okay, I did not know he died, but I meant that he lived under a cloud unfairly.

Klink Cannoli said...

Why Lino, I didn't know you cared. Smooches, sweetie.

Tsk-tsk. Using the word reputable in the same sentence with CNN and the BBC. You're such a naughty little boy. We'll have to send you to Thailand again for your spankings.

Sorry to ill-ease you but, yep the 'Beeb" and CNN ARE reputable...I'll not ask what your sources are.

BTW: Thais are don't like spankings and such..they are pleasure oriented.

I'm partial to King Jan III Sobieski, he knew how to handle the Turks at Vienna!

Charles Martel is also dear to my heart!

I just love Arizona. I go camping there all the time. Tucson, Sedona, Bisbee. The Grand Canyon State.

I'm heading there this summer! I planned it even before the glorious law was passed! If all the yahoos want to boycott, even better - less people!

Klink Cannoli said...

Lino, you're so gullible it's a crime to out you this easily. Do you actually think I give a rat's ass about where you get your propaganda from? Go cry to that Uncle that sexually molested you when you were nine.

Klink. If you didn't book a flight yet, try Arizona in September. Not as hot, less people, and the red rocks and saguaro cactus are still gorgeous.

Truth hurts you faux intellectuals, doesn't it.

You made a vile, childish statement that should be beneath an adult, and the facts have shown your bias and ignorance.

You can prevent this situation from recurring by growing up a few decades and taking in real information.

Be seeing you.
