Faisal Shazad....Shazam! A US Citizen is the Culprit

So, it was Faisal Shahzad, 30, a US citizen from Pakistan. The man was arrested at New York's JFK airport Monday night trying to board a flight to Dubai and will appear before a federal court Tuesday, May 4. He was identified as the buyer of the Nissan Pathfinder used to rig the failed car bomb. US Attorney General Eric Holder said that more than one person is sought in connection with the attempted terrorist plot. Shahzad's information will be vital for uncovering the extent of the conspiracy and its potential for more terrorist attacks in New York or other American cities. The problem is the US has renounced any form of enhanced interrogation techniques....such as anything that would make the suspect uncomfortable.
NY Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said the bomb made up of propane tanks, fertilizer and gasoline, which failed to detonate in the SUV, could have produced " significant fireball" in the heart of Midtown Manhattan Saturday night May 1 had it worked properly. It was detected when smoke billowed out of the parked vehicle near Time Square. The next day, Debkafile headlined the Pakistani Taliban's claim of responsibility, taped in advance by its top bomb-maker, Qari Hussain Mehsud, and strengthened a few hours later by the release of a videotape allegedly made by Pakistani Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud on April 4, weeks after he was reported killed by a US missile strike in January, and ignored at the time. On that nine-minute tape, he vowed retaliation for the killing of Islamist leaders: "The time is very near when our fedayeen will attack the American states in the major cities."
Shortly before he was killed by a US drone in Aug. 2009, his predecessor, Baitullah Mehsud, claimed his movement was now able to execute operations inside the United States. This claim seems to have some meat behind it. According to the NY City Police Commissioner, this is the eleventh terrorist attempt this year in NYC. Most of those failed attempts went unreported by the national media and were ignored by the White House. How much longer will we go before one of these "failed attempts" becomes a catastrophic success?
In the meantime, one of the instigators of Islamic Radicalism will be arriving in New York today to attend a UN Non-Nuclear Proliferation Conference in order to decry Israel's alleged posession of nuclear weapons. Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadenijad will be given a visa and a podium. You can bet his speech will be covered by the media ad infinitum!
What a wacky, messed up world we live in.
But do not fear....Jesus' Coming Draws Near!
