Skip to comments.Times Square bomb suspect arrested 'at last second' (Has he been Mirandized and is he talking?)
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.
Three??/ The media is saying 2 and the cops realesed the friend????
Well, well, well. Who would have guessed it? A Pakistani man-made disastrist.
Yep. Should have never been an American citizen in the first place.
The only down side to the left will be no connection to the tea party
Any guesses as to how long this event was planned?
And to Mayor Jackass
I’m guessing this one was set in motion before he became a citizen.
Why not? They drink tea in Pakistan, don't they?
Heck, that's close enough for the moonbats on the left.
I was just listening to FOX news and it sounds like they have 48 hours to read him his rights.
Ohmygosh! Look at that...All the clods in the media got stuck in a trap of their design, and today, they’re busy chewing their own leg off to escape. The evil “white” guy scenario is down the drain.
How does it taste, fellow travelers and useful idiots? Enjoy your meal. I know I’ll enjoy watching. You want mustard with that mutton?
BFL. Not sure if this is related. The title of this research paper is Impact of Pak-US Relationship News on KSE-100 Index. The fifth author contributor is Mr. Faisal Shahzad. Lecturer, Comsats Institute of Information Technology.
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.
The fellow is a graduate of Obama's kiss-arse make nice to Muslims plan, class of 2009. You notice anything?
You could look at it another way, Obama's sleeper cell recruitment plan.
Do you know where your former GITMO terrorist are?
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.
How does it taste, fellow travelers and useful idiots? Enjoy your meal. I know Ill enjoy watching. You want mustard with that mutton?
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.
A lot of crap needs to change.
The media peed all over themselves about the raid and capture of the evil Hutaree Militia here in Michigan but barely a peep about their release yesterday.
“The evil white guy scenario is down the drain.”
Reminds me of when the DC Snipers were out and about. They were just certain it was a ‘middle aged white guy’ weren’t they?
......Why in the heck didn’t they stop him as he was going through customs?.....
Because you don’t go through customs outbound.
“They just caught him at the last second...”
Actually I think that would have to be *before* he planted the bomb...
The guy had a facebook page?
had ... you are right about that.
The photo is from before it disappeared.
All American sleeper. Think about what this means.
Mayor Bloomers bet that it was someone against Obamacare.
Nice to know what he thinks of a majority of Americans.
They they would build a car bomb to murder their fellow citizens.
The Knights of Columbus bombers are foiled again! Seriously, we should send him back to Pakistan. They can deal with him more in line with what he deserves...
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.
Did Obama/Holder lawyer this guy up already?
He’s an American citizen now, of course he’s lawyered up.
and going to Dubai no less
A very 24ish apprehension - “He’s broken through our perimeter! The plane is on the runway and he has the computer disk!”
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.
You nailed it. It was exactly how the events of last night were portrayed.
Good thing he didn’t have a bomb in his underoos.
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?
Standing by for a history update from the Ministry of Truth.
You can bet he has ties to Awlaki.
Muslim cleric Anwar al Awlaki the friend of Maj. Nidal Hasan who was the Ft. Hood Shooter. Hmm but you canÂt call them Islamic Terrorists can you!
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.
SEC Examiners, where are you on this??
I still can and still will. ;-)
Shahzad must be a complete fool. Why he did not travel by car to another airport to fly to Dubai shows his lack of brainpower.
Not sure at all that it is related. Name could be common like John Smith. Just seemed strange because news story quoted neighbor saying he worked on Wall St.
Yep, certainly fits the description of a balding white man in his 40’s.
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.
