    Are the NYT's and James Risen at fault here? Investigators of the failed car bombing in Times Square are looking for a money courier they say helped funnel cash from overseas to finance a Pakistani-American's preparations to blow up the crude gasoline-and-propane bomb in the heart of New York, a law enforcement official told The Associated Press. Investigators have the name of the courier they believe helped Faisal Shahzad pay for the used SUV and other materials to rig up a car bomb that would have caused a huge fireball in Times Square if it had gone off, the official...

    Its hero and editor are dead, but the al-Qaida magazine, Inspire, continues to do just that. According to the complaint filed in federal district court in New York, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, 21, a student from Bangladesh arrested Wednesday and charged with trying to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in ManhattanÂ’s Financial District, was the latest Islamist militant to try to follow the example of the radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki and the English-language magazine, Inspire, created in his honor. Quazi Nafis, who came to the United States last January on a student visa, had big...

    Federal authorities today for the first time asserted a direct link between one of the Pakistani men detained in Massachusetts last week and the alleged Times Square terror bomber. In an immigration court hearing this afternoon, a government witness testified that alleged bomber Faisal Shahzad’s cell number was programmed into Aftab Ali Khan’s phone. The government also contended that Shahzad’s first name was found on an envelope in Khan’s Watertown room. An Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent also testified that Khan’s wife, U.S. citizen Lila-Charlotte Fatou Sylla of Cambridge, had told ICE that the couple’s marriage was a sham “purely...

    Smirking defiantly as a Manhattan federal judge sentenced him to spend the rest of his life in prison, the American-citizen terrorist who tried to detonate a car bomb in Times Square vowed yesterday that "the defeat of [the] US is imminent." In a 10-minute statement to the court that denounced post-9/11 foreign policy as it threatened future American bloodshed, Faisal Shahzad warned: "Brace yourselves, because the war with Muslims has just begun. Consider me only a first droplet of the blood that will follow me. Invoking the names of Osama bin Laden and the medieval Muslim sultan Saladin, the 31-year-old...

     As Dan reported here earlier, would-be Times Square bomber Feisal Shahzad was sentenced to life-imprisonment earlier today. Defiant and remorseless to the end, Shahzad made a number of chilling statements, but the most interesting moment came when Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum asked him — in a “you can’t possibly be serious” sort of way — whether he really believed the Koran wanted him to kill innocent people. “The Koran gives you the right to defend,” he replied, adding, ”That’s all I’m doing.” It would be nice if Western apologists for Islam and its sharia law would listen to that — even...

    Faisal Shahzad, who attempted to detonate a car bomb in New York's Times Square on a crowded Saturday night, was sentenced to life in federal prison today. Before she pronounced sentence, Judge Miriam Cedarbaum said, "Mr. Shahzad, I think you should get up." Shahzad said "Allahu Akbar" after hearing the sentence, and said he would "sacrifice a thousand lives for Allah." (Snip) Shahzad also said he was happy with "the deal" God had given him. "We have laws made by Allah. We don't need laws made by humans."

    Times Square bomber, Faisal Shahzad is one of the few jihadis who has been truthful about his motivations. His terrorist colleagues generally concoct outlandish fabrications to explain their behavior, endearing them to Obama and Holder’s justice department which has deemed Islamic terorism non-existent. as deemed Islamic terorism non-existent.

    Faisal Shahzad, Jihadi, Explains Terrorism by Daniel Pipes June 25, 2010 Jaw-dropping court testimony by Faisal Shahzad, the would-be Times Square bomber, singlehandedly undermines Obama administration efforts to ignore the dangers of Islamism and jihad. Shahzad's forthright statement of purpose stands out because jihadis, when facing legal charges, typically save their skin by pleading not guilty or plea bargaining. Consider a few examples: Naveed Haq, who assaulted the Jewish Federation building in Seattle, pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. Lee Malvo, one of the Beltway Snipers, explained that "one reason for the shootings was that white people had tried...

    The Obama administration and its public affairs department, the liberal media, go to ridiculous extremes to convince the American people that we are not at war with Muslims but rather with only a tiny minority segment of cave-dwelling, Middle Eastern zealots who happen to have it in for us for some unfathomable reason. In spite of the politically-correct labeling of terrorist attacks as man-caused disasters, perhaps there are real reasons to suspect that such attacks could be more correctly identified as "Muslim-caused disasters."At his trial this week, Faisal Shahzad, better known as the Times Square bomber, justified his terrorist attack...

    He's guilty as hell -- and proud of it. Bumbling terrorist Faisal Shahzad yesterday arrogantly admitted trying to detonate a homemade car bomb in Times Square -- boasting that he wanted to kill as many of his fellow Americans as possible. "I want to plead guilty, and I will plead guilty a hundred times over until the United States pulls its troops out of Afghanistan, stops its drone strikes in Somalia, Yemen and Pakistan, stops the occupation of Muslim lands and stops killing the Muslims" Shahzad rambled to a Manhattan federal court judge. "We will be attacking [the] US, and...

    The DOJ is running up against the limits of the civilian justice system After the initial spate of chest-beating, we hadn’t heard much from the Justice Department about the case of would-be Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad and the many ways it illustrates how splendidly the criminal justice system performs in terrorism cases — even the cases of enemy combatants who could otherwise be held indefinitely and interrogated for intelligence purposes. Now comes word from the U.S. attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York that Shahzad has been indicted. He is charged with ten terrorism counts, ranging from...

    In what further strengthens the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan's (TTP) direct involvement in the failed Times Square bombing plot, a federal indictment released earlier this week has revealed that the extremist outfit had paid $12,000 to Faisal Shahzad to plot the explosion at the busy commercial intersection. Shahzad, a US citizen of Pakistani origin currently in detention, has been accused of planting an explosives laden SUV at Times Square. According to The Washington Post, the 10-count federal indictment alleges that Shahzad received payments of $5,000 and $7,000 in transactions with an accomplice affiliated with the Taliban. The first payment was received in...
