A Connecticut man was being sought Monday in the failed plot to blow up a bomb-laden SUV in Times Square, sources said.

This "person of interest" bought the 1993 Nissan Pathfinder that was abandoned with the engine running - and with primitive, but potentially deadly payload in the rear - just two weeks ago, law enforcement and police sources told The Daily News.

Investigators aren't certain whether he is the same man who drove the rolling bomb to the Crossroads of the World, but he has not been seen by his girlfriend - and has not shown up at his home or job - since the frightening i

It looks like the guy was from Pakistan and there are international connections. I wont say Al-Qaeda because of the crude design of the car bomb. It will be interesting to see if there are any south park connections. Im sure there will be much more information on the suspect soon. Hmm need to say more somehow................ Ok IMO I dont believe this to be a smoke screen for the oil spill , but who knows?

The MSM just now, stated that the FBI spoke with the owner and he is NOT a suspect. This might be interesting to follow!

It always amazes me how the Taliban and terrorists in general have us pretty bogged down in A-stan and Osama has never been found, yet they can barely manage to do anything correctly in their attempts at terrorism on US soil. I smell something very very fishy here folks!

So now that they know who they're looking for, it won't take long to find him. What kind of "forensic evidence" can link a person to terrorists? I think this could easily be something that is a one-man mission but is spinned by the MSM/TPTB into a huge terrorist plot used to remind the West of its enemies.

They sure have spin it off from looking for the white guy in his 40's earlier in the day to a Pakistani-American

40-year old white guy with forensic data to suggest that he has links with foreign terrorists, undoubtedly from the middle east. I'm sure you won't hear that they're looking for a white guy anymore.

This is defintely going to turn into another 1993/2001 WTC attack on American soil. That attack set bin Laden as the enemy then and now it is setting Pakistan as the enemy.

If it was a caucasion male that was the prime suspect they would be linking him to militia groups right now. Whoever it is they have to link him to a group in order to instill maximum fear in the citizenry. People will be scared if he is linked to a group because then they think "oh no, there are more people like that who want to do the same thing and I want to be "protected", please take all my rights away".


This makes me so angry that I want to vomit.

The first thought was that he was white and part of a militia group. Now that the Taliban in Pakistan have claimed responsibility, his allegiances are shifting to a foreign terrorist organzation. There is more fear in foreign terrorists than militias at the moment so, like you said, pinning him as a person who spent time in Pakistan is causing the most fear.

How about a disgruntled used car salesman who hates Craigs list. How long before some politican tries to ban people selling their own cars. It is an election year and all

Hello,
If the guy had any help (conspiracy) I don't see how the two or more people can forget to open-up the valves on the LPG tanks. That's a huge component, piece of the puzzle. I don't know how explosives work. But it seems to me that they/he forgot to open the valves. Whatever little "boom" was heard, that, I think, should've been enough to ignite the fumes being leaked and caused the intended outcome. Because the guy forgot to open the valves, that tells me he was working by himself.

Or, if it was a staged failure; on purpose, then I'd say it was a conspiracy. But smoke, and left idling, the guy acted alone. Plain and simple. He's probably a CIA guy that didn't want to comply, now being painted as a terrorist to further whatever agenda is being applied.

And, as we well know, the real story won't be told by the MSM. Look at how that Joe Stack story got raped.

No. The gasoline flares up and when help arrives the propane blows from the heat before it can be cooled and takes anyone near with it. Two stage bomb plans are being shown on many sights on the internet. No matter, it's pretty damned easy and stupid to get blown up yourself playing with stuff like this.
Also, If it was a white guy it still could be terrorists affiliated with Al Queda. The guys that wrote those threats to South Park are converts and white Americans! It was directly across from Viacom. They own Comedy Central!

Hello,

Al Queda has been debunked. There's no such organization by that name.

How many Muslims are in times square at any given moment?

Viacom? Uh-uh, ain't buying it. Trey and Matt censored themselves, or got censored by the bigwigs. Mossad agent if any organization was involved, IMO.

A man suspected of attempting to detonate a car bomb in New York City has been arrested. Faisal Shahzad, a US citizen of Pakistani origin, is accused of driving the explosives-laden car into Times Square on Saturday evening. He is due to appear in court in Manhattan later. US Attorney General Eric Holder said Mr Shahzad was arrested at John F Kennedy Airport attempting to board a flight to Dubai.

Well , look like they got him.
