Times Square bomb suspect arrested 'at last second' (Has he been Mirandized and is he talking?)
cnn ^ | 5/4/2010 | cnn

Posted on 05/04/2010 4:02:41 AM PDT by tobyhill

A naturalized American citizen from Pakistan arrested overnight in the Times Square bombing investigation will appear in a Manhattan federal courtroom Tuesday morning to face formal charges in the case.

Faisal Shahzad, 30, was on board an Emirates Airlines plane at JFK International Airport when he was taken into custody, law enforcement officials said. A law enforcement official told CNN Shahzad's final destination was Pakistan.

Authorities removed three passengers from the Dubai-bound flight late Monday, according to a spokesman for the airline, but two were allowed back on board, officials said.

Shahzad was arrested at 11:45 p.m. Monday, Attorney General Eric Holder said early Tuesday from Washington.

A federal law enforcement source said Shahzad nearly made it out of the country.

"They just caught him at the last second," according to the source, who said Shahzad was on board the flight to Dubai and the jetway had been pulled back when the plane was called to return to the gate.

They said he was “arrested” and since he’s a citizen I expect he was mirandized.

I would suspect you are correct and I would suspect he is silent right now while we are still under threat. I'm sure Obama and the MSM can still find some time to party down.

Why not? They drink tea in Pakistan, don't they?

Heck, that's close enough for the moonbats on the left.

OMG! They actually allowed this guy to board a plane? Why in the heck didn't they stop him as he was going through customs? The NSA was already tracking him via international calls he had placed through his cellphone.

You could look at it another way, Obama's sleeper cell recruitment plan.

A quote from the research paper appears below. I wonder if this idiot was trying to manipulate the markets.

The impact of the 9/11 event immediately after the attacks; financial markets reacted around the world spreading uncertainty about the near future. All the stock markets showed a fall during trading day; many of them took months to recover; the average recovery period was recorded as 76 days; Quickest was 9 days by Slovean stock exchange where as Shanghai composite index could not recover the whole year however US equity recovered in 30 days (Cespedes and Christoher, 2003). Tzachi (2003) conducted a study to find the impact of political events on stock market of Israel. The study explored the relationship between stock prices and the political news; the purpose of the paper was to learn how Israeli stock market responds to changes in Israel political environment and especially events related to peace. Thus, the role of political events in explaining stock market variation is not only through their impact on future variables such as cash-flows, but is also through their effect on the degree of uncertainty in the stock market. This uncertainty may or may not translate into changes in future variables such as earnings or aggregate output, but it certainly has a discernible effect on current prices

The downside to the left is that this guy was on a watch list and obama was watching his polling and not our security. There is NO upside in terror for dims... terrorism is part of their team.

They're not going to admit to a single thing, Sarge.

The whole "looking for a white male" thing is going to go into the memory hole so fast it'll make your head spin, and that'll be the last you ever hear of it.

Until the next terrorist attempt. Which'll probably be a little more "successful" than this one.

The Feds were onto him and following him. They let him pay for his ticket and proceed to the boarding gate and board the plane. The boarding ramp was removed and then put back so the Feds could board and arrest him. They let it go this far on purpose to see if he made contact with any co-conspirators.

Interesting because this morning it was said they allowed him to board and the plane pull out of the gate because they were watching for accomplices.

I think I am going with CNN on this one.

To: Protect the Bill of Rights

So, here is the official li(n)e being put out by the Obama’s attorney general (and former terrorist defense lawyer) Holder about yesterday’s last-minute arrest of the Times Square bomber:

The Feds were onto him and following him. They let him pay for his ticket and proceed to the boarding gate and board the plane. The boarding ramp was removed and then put back so the Feds could board and arrest him. They let it go this far on purpose to see if he made contact with any co-conspirators.

Right, it’s always best to let a violent suspect burrow himself among scores of innocent civilians before trying to apprehend him. Does Obama think we’re all that big a bunch of idiots? Well, yes, of course he does. After all, we elected him our first Black Muslim Marxist president.

Did they find out what his problem with Obamacare is yet?

And which TEA party he attended on April 15th?

Or was he still in Pok-ee-stan with the Taliban then?

The arrest happened just shortly after some Demonutbagcrat on Hannity was saying he wasn’t yet convinced that it wasn’t some right-wing nut job who is a member of the TEA party.

the fact that we were subject to this kind of risk from a LEGAL immigrant (who at the very least had to let the Federal Bureaucrats go thru the motions of checking him out) shows you what an exponentially greter risk we would face from hoardes of ILLEGAL immigrants.
