Posted on 10/05/2010 12:29:15 PM PDT by traumer
Faisal Shahzad, who pleaded guilty to trying to blow up a sport utility vehicle carrying a homemade bomb in May in Times Square, thick with Saturday visitors, was sentenced on Tuesday morning to spend the rest of his life in prison. Remaining defiant, and smirking as the sentence was read, he told the court: Brace yourselves, because the war with Muslims has just begun.
He later continued: The defeat of the U.S. is imminent and will happen in the near future.
Mr. Shahzad, 30, was sentenced by Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum in Federal District Court in Manhattan. As those filling the courtroom listened, she told Mr. Shahzad, You are a young man, and you will have a lot of time to reflect about what you have said today, and what you have done.
The outcome of the hearing was a foregone conclusion, since Mr. Shahzads no-deals guilty plea June 21, in which he spoke at length about his training with the Pakistani Taliban and his desire that day to plead guilty 100 times over.
Mr. Shahzads vehicle, loaded with explosives as ill equipped to detonate as they were powerful, was found in Times Square on May 1, and he was arrested two days later aboard an airplane about to leave for Dubai. He immediately began cooperating with the authorities. Investigators later exploded a similar vehicle with an operational bomb inside, and estimated that the blast could have killed dozens.

Now we taxpayers have to support this maggot until he dies.
A 5.56mm round between the running lights would have been a lot cheaper and I would volunteer to deliver it, myself.
He will have a lifetime of converting American criminals and putting them on our streets. Sweet.
He will have a lifetime to teach others in prison all he knows.
0 told us we weren’t at war with Islam...what gives?
After we “absorb” another attack, Imam Hussein 0bama will give it some thought.
Housing suggestions: Ft. Leavenworth or the Aryan Nation wing of Attica
He’s not a “would be” bomber, save that moniker for the jihadists who thought they were detonating a bomb but really handed a dummy remote by FBI agents.
This is a bomb plot but he was still had deadly intent. He was THWARTED after it had been planted.
Bill Ayres' multiple bombs did work and he got a professorship at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
I's a strange world we live in.
He won’t come into contact with his fellow inmates:
The clean version of Hell.
WOW! Post of the year!
So we have to support this scumbag for the rest of his life, listen to his ramblings and subject people to the threat of some other kook retaliating. Just take him outside and shoot him, send him on his way to his 72 virgins.
I request a pork-heavy menu for this scumbag.
