Suspected money courier sought in NYC plot


www.msnbc.msn.com

NEW YORK - 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 a 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 who they believe helped Faisal Shahzad pay for the used sport utility vehicle 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 told the AP. The official didn'

As the investigation goes on, at least what is made public, it is looking more and more like this could have been a *real plot. Think about it for a minute, if this was a government job, then why not stop with the suspect that was already in custody? Why take this further? Why would we ever even think to follow the money, since this line of investigation has been all but ignored by official investigators for past attacks/threats? It just seems like they wouldn't want to take it any further if they have something to hide. The way that this investigation is going, it would seem that this could actually be a real attempt at terror. Of course it would be impossible to say for sure with what little information we have.

There are many things about this entire plot that would make it almost seem obvious that this was sponsored by TPTB, such as the discrepancies of suspects caught on videos, eye-witness accounts, the manner in which this was carried out and past similar actions by our government. There is a good thread here, that makes a pretty good case against this being a *real plot, however, it would seem otherwise, simply by the way that this investigation is being conducted.

To follow the money, who would have ever thought?

Edited to add: Of course, this could have been a plot by TPTB and someone made a mistake or there was an over-eager investigator that led to the unintended arrest of Faisal Shahzad. Could this unfold in a manner that might disclose a surprise?

Wait...
They are saying he helped "funnel money" for this attack?

Im sorry but...



Must have been one hell of a bill for a crappy SUV, a couple of propane tanks, some batteries, and some fireworks.

Most of it for the SUV.




Yea...Ummm....Not buying it.

In all fairness, the "suspect" was allegedly tbroke and that SUV costs, at the least, $10-15k. If he was supposedly broke, then of course he would need financing.

As I posted above, it is hard to believe that they are willing to open pandora's box by looking at the financing because if this was government sponsored, the financing could easily peel the covers back to reveal the truth. You will almost always reveal the true perpetrators by following the money and that is why it was so taboo for the 9/11 investigation. Just my 2 cents.
