Posted on 05/04/2010 3:53:28 PM PDT by Dallas59
Faisal Shahzad gave the impression of a quiet family man, raising two small children with his wife in Shelton, Conn. and telling neighbors he worked on Wall Street.
Now the Pakistani-American is accused of trying to detonate a homemade car bomb in New York City's bustling Times Square. Authorities have brought terrorism and mass destruction charges against him, saying he has confessed to receiving explosives training in Pakistan.
Shahzad was expected to appear in court Tuesday. CBS News reports that officials intend to arraign Shahzad Wednesday morning in Manhattan Federal Court before a U.S. magistrate. Shahzad has been talking to investigators, officials said.

Then this just goes to show how deep and troublesome the terrorism threat is
It’s not just a bumper sticker . . right, Breck Girl?
Must have voted Democrat, if he was a Republican this would be front page.
Well, they don't exactly walk around with crossed bandoleers and a badge saying "terrorist" now do they??
Faisal prior to his radicalization as a result of Bush Administration economic policy.
Shahzad was in Pakistan in 2009 supposedly taking bomb making lessons and rubbing shoulders with Terrorists. So why continue with mortgage payments if he knew he would no longer be living as "a Connecticut Man"?
I don't go with the story that he wanted to fit in as a victim of the evil lenders/banks scenario. He had money to travel on.
That old wood structure "tenement building" looked more like an apartment than an ownership from the picture, now that I reflect on it.
And to think that many of his ilk are in the military and law enforcement and (God forbid) in government having access to explosives and weapons and national security information.
Yeah America, your intelligence is really overwhelming.
He should get his money back.
The guy was positively charming. Good thing for him he’s a registered Democrat or the media would be portraying him as a vicious rightwing devil.
hmmm charged with “WMD s “
That could be the SUV...Sadam had SUV s.
It could be the fertilizer...Sadam had fertilizer.
It might be the detonator.....Sadam had those too.
This administration says there were no WMD s in Iraq ?
but his bomber had WMD s ????????
Reading between the lines, they're saying he did NOT work on Wall Street. So how did he make his money?
The only saving grace is most of these terrorists are too stupid to put together even a rudimentary car bomb, much less a real WMD. But our luck ran out once and may run out again.
I saw the place this evening on TV. THIS is a “$200k home”?
I don’t know CT. at all, but out here, that would rent for under $300/month and would likely be paid with a Section 8 voucher.
Building could have been "owner occupied", some of the comps show tenements in the same price range 120K up depending on the neighborhood. Bridgeport has never been HIGH END CT, no matter what the mayor plays it as--dilusional.(..as I have read his comments).
