Pakistani US citizen ‘trying to flee US’
Pakistan and American — is it homegrown or is it international? Hmmmm. Uh, it’s jihad, stupid.
So this is the white man the NY Times said was a person of interest. I am surprised they didn’t call him a tea partier. Asshats. (photo hat tip Rut)
May 1, 2010:
Authorities arrested a suspect in the attempted weekend car bombing in Times Square, NBC News’ justice correspondent Pete Williams reported early Tuesday morning.
A U.S. citizen of Pakistani descent, Shahzad Faisal, was arrested Monday night on Long Island, Williams reported. WNBC’s Jonathan Dienst reported that Faisal was picked up at JFK airport.
Earlier, an official told The Associated Press that the potential suspect recently traveled to Pakistan. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because the case was at a sensitive stage.
Either the terrorists were running a drill, or the cops were...It sure seemed like it could have been a 'drill'. ...and if the terrorists ran such a practice run, I guess they got to watch how Times Square is going to manage the situation. (on May Day). And we all know how the terrorists love the symbolism of certain dates...I watched the evacuation start from the upper level of McD' so it all seemed a bit casual,
But, then a woman came in, frazzled, and said people were running up town saying the pop, pops they just heard was a gun....then there was talk of a bomb...
In a few pictures you can see the bottles of water left behind and some chairs people knocked over as they got out of dodge. As far as the cops, it still took a few minutes before they started clearing Duffy Square. It was a fire...it was a bomb...still have no idea.
I took some video as we all left McD.s and headed for up to 47th St. The cop said at McD's said it was a bomb that had already gone off...
Now since we already no that the authorities never want to label anything as terrorism....or anyone a terrorist, will this go down in the reports as a "suspicious car-fire" (case-closed?)
HEADS UP May Day, Union Square and The Illegals (video and pics ) is now posted:
Re May Day and the Illegals: Our intense confrontation in Union Square with the predictable Supporters of the Illegals (always on May Day) and the lack of police support for our side was not the norm at all, allowing the annoying infiltration of our Patriots by the 9-11 Truthers/We are Change/John Birch Nut-Jobs.We had a few hot and heavy exchanges and the police were AWOL (bizarre).
Found the link to the CNN posting of our video. It was about 3 AM (EST). The You Tube post was only up about 20 minutes when CNN spotted it. Wow….
Re-post of a slide show we took of the Times Square Recruitment Station in March of 2008. I think the story goes now that it was some French anarchists?
