Terror Suspect's Computer Said to Show Sports Stadiums, Fashion Sites
Officials Report Denver Man Sent Texts Suggesting Attack Coming; 'Wedding Cake' Is Ready
By RICHARD ESPOSITO, BRIAN ROSS and CLAYTON SANDELL Sept. 19, 2009
A computer belonging to alleged al Qaeda suspect Najibullah Zazi showed he had researched baseball and football stadiums and sites used in the recent Fashion Week event in New York City, law enforcement officials tell ABCNews.com.
Zazi, 24, had been scheduled to spend a fourth day today being questioned by the FBI but his lawyer, Arthur Folsom, canceled the session.
"He has taken the day to consult with his client," said Wendy Aiello, a spokeswoman for the lawyer.
Zazi is not in custody, she said.
While officials say they do not know the targets of the alleged plot, the contents of Zazi's computer are considered a valuable insight into what he might have been planning.
After first denying any ties to al Qaeda, Zazi has now admitted certain ties developed during trips to Pakistan, law enforcement officials told ABCNews.com.
The officials said text messages sent by Zazi suggest the plot was nearing the attack phase. One message said the "wedding cake is ready," which authorities say may have been code to indicate the attack was ready. Al Qaeda operatives have frequently used references to weddings to disguise planned terror attacks.

And the NY Times has spend years wailing about all of the "wedding parties" blown up by American troops in the middle of the desert, in the middle of the night, without ever mentioning this one little fact?
>>> Zazi is not in custody, she said. <<<<
TOO BAD WATERBOARDING IS NO LONGER ON THE TABLE.

SNIPPET: The ties between Najibullah Zazi and al-Qaida are growing. A source who gets high-level intelligence briefings told CBS 2 HD that law enforcement officials have recorded a number of conversations between Zazi and a known al-Qaida operative in Pakistan.
The key parts of the conversation? The operative told Zazi what to say if stopped by police, and there is also a reference to a wedding, which American agents believe is a code word for an attack.
Sources said the formula for the explosive TATP was found in Zazis computer when they seized his car, and with President Barack Obama coming to the UN next week, the FBI felt it needed to act.

Somebody needs to get this guy strapped to a water board post haste.
"One message said the "wedding cake is ready," which authorities say may have been code to indicate the attack was ready."
Fashion week is a big deal to New York and Hollywood. I wonder how if the left would have blamed it on a conspiracy (like 9/11).
