8 Arrested in Pakistan in Connection with the Faisal Shahzad Times Square Terrorist Bomb Plot


According to this CBS report, eight individuals have been arrested and taken into custody in connection with the attempted NYC Time Square bomb plot.

30 year old  Faisal Shahzad was arrested last night at JFK International airport in NYC as three people were taken off a flight bound for Dubai. Shahzad was a Pakistan born, US naturalized citizen suspected in the Time Square bombing attempt.

Authorities are not saying who the potential suspects are or where they are being held, but they say there were raids Monday night and Tuesday morning in different locations. It’s believed between four and eight people are being held, and there are reports that some of them may be related to the suspect arrested overnight in New York.

So much for the terrorist Faisal Shahzad acting alone and there not being an international Muslim, Islamic connection to this attempted terror act.

Karachi connection with the investigation of the Times Square bombing attempt. Who will be the first in the MSM to use the adjective Muslim, Islam, Islamofascist, or radical Muslim extremists to describe this terrorist attempt to blow up a bomb and kill innocent individuals in NYC?

UPDATE I: NBC news is reporting that Pakistan authorities have arrested 5 men in connection with the Times Square bomb case. NBC producer Carol Grisanti, reporting on MSNBC from Pakistan, says the five are believed to be “facilitators’ who allegedly worked with Faisal Shahzad, the Pakistani-born U.S. citizen who was arrested at JFK airport Monday night as he prepared to fly to Dubai.

UPDATE II: Attorney General Eric Holder says in a press conference today that Faisal Shahzad is singing like a bird and providing useful information.

UPDATE III: Faisal Shahzad charged with act if terrorism

Attorney General Eric Holder says Times Square car bomb suspect Faisal Shahzad has been charged with an act of terrorism and attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction.

Shahzad, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Pakistan, is under arrest for the failed May 1 bombing. Holder said Shahzad, who has provided “valuable information” to investigators, attempted to carry out a “lethal terrorist attack” aimed at “murdering Americans in one of the busiest places in our country.”

UPDATE IV: “We have picked up a few family members” related to Shahzad, a security official in Karachi said. A friend of Shahzad was also detained.

UPDATE V: So much for acting alone … the Pakistan Connection.

      No big surprise here! Let’s see how quickly Obama starts to waffle on his promise to bring the law down swiftly upon these TERRORISTS~! Barry could actually make himself look good right before elections here if he does the right thing!

      What have we learned since 9/11 America? Radical Muslim Extremist acts of Terrorisim must NOT BE TOLERATED! This was a very close call. Now DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT, Mr. President !!!!!!!!!!

      Mayor Bloomberg owes the Tea Party movement an apology as do the insane quacky liberals who have tried to paint the Times Square Bomb Square on the Tea Party.

      I’m sick and tired of these idiots left moronic liberal pukes always blaming the Tea Party for violence when INTELLIGENT and the masses of America know one liberal protest has more violence then 10 Tea Party protests.

      F U Bloomberg and F U you liberal jacka*****
      SM: I am working on a post about that nonsense. My how NYC must miss RUDY. Bloomberg is a fool. What reporter will ask Bloomberg if the Pakistani terroirst if he was unhappy with Obamacare? Oh, BTW … the man arrested on plane was a registered Democrat.

      “one off”.. whose side is be-bop the clown on?

    4. Scott on May 4th, 2010 12:14 pm

      SM: Isn’t that amazing that he was registered DEMOCRAT…LOL!

      Like I said, Democrats are generally stupid people; using fire crackers and fertilizer that would not have been instrumental in blowing up the van….idiots!

      They should string this bastard at high noon in the middle of times square upside down so people could throw baseballs at his head until he passes out; then revive him and blast him some more.

      I’m tired of this p*ssification of America from our administration!

      And if I see one more news report quoting this whack -job as being a “Pakistani-American”

      Eff that! This man is in NO WAY AMERICAN! He only applied for and OBTAINED his naturalization to fit in and draw away further speculation.

      He needs to be prosecuted within the fullest extent of the law. What the $^%#*#*#*# Strip him of this status, lock him up FOR LIFE ! LIFE ! LIFE! LIFE! I hope this piece of sh*# is singing like a bird. His Wife and children should not be allowed back in this Country, either. SORRY! GET OUT AND STAY THE HELL OUT! This is enraging!

      He said when interviewed that he worked alone…can’t believe anything they say ever, even when in American clothes and style, they are still wanting to kill other Americans. He was a coward, not even willing to give his own life like some of them do. He was getting the hell out of Dodge so to speak, put him in general population in prison.

      In the period of time since 9/11 I can recall no instance of an American attacking a Middle-Easterner because he was a Moslem. (Or for any other reason, actually.) Why in the world does Bloomberg insult us by insinuating that we are just waiting to jump a Moslem? He says he won’t tolerate that. Well, I won’t tolerate him. Moron.

      These idiotic politicians are grandstanding and taking credit for the failure of this bomb to explode. It was pure luck and the ineptitude of the bomber that NY was spared and for that I thank God and not some ridiculous posturing politician. And that includes the President of the United States about whom I have grave doubts as to where his loyalty lies as well as his nationality and religious affiliation.

      This Pakistani who must have an IQ around room temperature failed to remove the vin number from the vehicle except from the dashboard. He was too dumb to know this number is placed in other areas. Give me a vin number and access to the records and I can find an auto owner too.

      It is my understanding that a ticket agent at Emirate Airlines reported this slob because he made his reservation to Yemen on the way to the airport and paid cash for his ticket. The cavalry made it to the airport just in time to prevent the plane taking off.

      My point is that there are unsung heroes in this saga–a tee shirt salesman, a ticket agent, but not one of these politicians who are now puffing out their chests and taking credit for preventing a disaster when they had nothing to do with it. Hey guys, the bomb failed to go off.

      They make me sick.

      The really big fish is this idiot from iran who is in the process of developing an atomic weapon. He will then bring it to the US and detonate it. He MUST be kept out of the United States.

      on a good note, british sniper drops two
      of obama’s taliban buddies at the record
      distance of 1.54 miles. they never even
      heard the muzzle blast.

      I read and heard this somewhere this morning——

      “President Obama Keeps Us Safe, And The Right Can’t Stand It.” ( Are they SERIOUS?????)

      Cue the double-take.

      We know the folks at MSNBC live on a different planet from the rest of us, but thought they were at least in our same solar system. Here’s what “keeping us safe” looks like:

      * A 30-year old Muslim guy spends five months in the terror-friendliest part of Pakistan then returns to the US. He starts acting weirdly, quits his job, his family disappears and stops making his house payments…and nobody notices.
      The bomber successfully leaves a bomb on the streets in Times Square, lights the fuse and gets away.
      * He evades capture for two days. At one point, the Obama administration lost track of him entirely.
      * He buys a one-way ticket for a flight to Dubai, pays cash for it and gets on the plane. The feds have no idea he’s on the plane until the last second. The plane is number one for takeoff before it’s called back to the terminal.

      * While he’s being arrested at JFK, authorities are surrounding his home in Connecticut preparing to storm in and arrest him. They were shocked to discover he was long gone.

      This is how the Obama administration performs against a rank amateur, a clueless, poorly trained suburban-dad-turned-terrorist? Wow—we haven’t been this inspired by our security since our brilliant performance foiling the Jock Strap Jihadist over the skies of Detroit.

      They even made a reference to how Jack may solve “crimes” in 24 hours, but hey—give them credit—this was less than 60. Janet proclaimed—this is a “one-off” situation even though now we know there were indeed ties to the Pakistani-Taliban.

      Sometimes I have a hard time telling who is more of a threat to our rule of law and way of life, is it terrorists or Republicans? I’m sorry, but if you trace the blood trail back to the beginning of the damage done to our environment, economy and freedom, it leads right to the Republican party. It takes more than a flag waving yokel to be a patriot…

    12. Scott on May 5th, 2010 10:33 am

      Earl…smoke another one you liberal idiot!

      Can you come up with an original thought of your own or do all you liberals pass around talking points because you are too stupid to think of an original thought of your own.

      Your such a big man equalling Republicans to terrorists. Big leap loser!

      No sir…the damage to our economy was the fault of Bill Clinton, Barney Frank and Chris Dodd’s “everyone should own a home even if you can’t pay any money down” housing scheme (LOOK IT UP NITWIT).

      The environment argument is a joke and a fraud. Try again. It’s already been PROVEN that scientists hid the real information. Polar Bears have increased near the ice packs while the ice has increased. LOL! You know the movement where Al Gore fattened his pockets on a lie!

      Our freedoms are being stripped away now doofus. We had more freedom under Reagan than at any other time in our modern history. Less government means more freedoms…you know the tested through time thing that works.

      Keep blaming Bush…You won’t have him to blame when we retake a majority of seats in both houses!

    13. Rusty Bridges on May 5th, 2010 10:38 am

      Get you head out your hind end earl. Barney
      Franks buddies fannie may and freddie mac caused the housing crisis and Bush tried to regulate them but the dems colluded to keep them propped up.

      Go back further and see who reversed Ronald Reagans law that made it illegal for american muslims to conspire to commit terrorist acts.
      can you guess who? Barney Fuqin Frank thats who. He is a democrat if you don’t know.

      Research sometime and not just huffpo.

    14. super dave on May 5th, 2010 11:15 am

      your name is earl : boy, get real. did you just wake up from a crack induced stupor or is this your normal brain thinking ?
      it takes more than a communist liberal democrat to be an American. smoke another pipe and go back
      to sleep. better yet, get a job !!!
