The FBI has arrested a 30-year old Bridgeport, Connecticut man in connection with the failed attempt to set off a car bomb in New York's Times Square, federal authorities told ABCNews.com late Monday night.
The man was identified as Faisal Shahzad, a naturalized American citizen, who had recently returned from a five month trip to Pakistan and the city of Peshawar, a known jumping off points for al Qaeda and Taliban recruits.
Shahzad was arrested at Kennedy airport in New York City where FBI agents said he was attempting to leave the country to go to Dubai.In a related story, former President Clinton was asking everyone to reserve judgement of Mr. Shahzad, referring to him as an immigrant who "was just trying to make a better life for himself"; that his presumed guilt was likely caused by "a vast right-wing conspiracy" - adding that Mr. Shahzad was angry with the Bush administration for cutting federal subsidies to Pakistani-trained terrorist who think American people are "Infidels", and the United States should be destroyed.
At a subsequent meeting of Fascists and Young Dictators in Washington, Mr. Obama and his fraternal twin TOTUS were quoting as saying "this is not an act of terrorism", and "there is no evidence of radical Islamo-Fascist tendencies at work here". TOTUS added "It is premature to call this an act of terrorism, because no Tea Baggers were harmed in the attempt".
Note: Much of the above is parody. It's obvious - inasmuch as it's inconceivable that Mr. Obama could have spelled "Islamo-Fascist" without Michelle at his side....
