You would think that the Islam connection to the attack would be too noticeable to overlook. Just saying. KGS

U.S. citizen from Pakistan arrested in Times Square bomb case
A man was arrested late Monday night in connection with the failed Times Square bombing, administration officials said. The suspect, Faisal Shahzad, a 30-year-old U.S. citizen from Pakistan, allegedly purchased the sport utility vehicle that authorities found packed with explosives in New York on Saturday night.
Authorities became aware of his identity Monday afternoon. He was arrested just after 11 p.m. by Customs and Border Protection agents at JFK International Airport. Shahzad’s flight to Dubai had left the gate and was headed toward the runway when authorities discovered that he was on board and wanted. He was removed from the plane and taken into custody, an official said.
Officials were reluctant to discuss Shahzad’s potential ties to foreign extremists — or his travel abroad — except to say that they believed he was fleeing the country at the time of his arrest. They did not immediately announce the charges against him or say where he was being held.
In a statement read to news media early Tuesday, Attorney General Eric Holder identified Shahzad as the man arrested at JFK airport. “This investigation is ongoing, as are our attempts to gather useful intelligence, and we continue to pursue a number of leads,” Holder said. “But it’s clear that the intent behind this terrorist act was to kill Americans.”
