Conservative Examiner ^ | 5/4/2010 | Anthony G. Martin

As reported by Conservative Examiner within 24 hours of the failed Times Square terrorist bombing, initial reports of a Pakistani connection have been confirmed.

Conservative Examiner reported that The Long War Journal broke the story that the Pakistani Taliban had claimed responsibility for the failed attack.

While it has not yet been established officially that the suspect now in custody, Faisal Shahzad, had direct connection with the Pakistani Taliban, Shahzad was born in Pakistan and had recently returned to the U.S. after having spent months in the country.

In addition, a report from Reuters in India indicates that terrorists in Pakistan have been seeking to expand their activity to a global reach.

Pakistan is like a festering vomit-hole of terrorism that America has always seemed comfortable to coddle with.

Muslim terrorist?!?!?! Naw, CNN said he was just angry because the bank foreclosed on his house. He’s just one of those peaceful Muslims, poor thing, he really didn’t mean to almost kill a bunch of people. *sarcasm off*
