Turns out it was a Pakistani who planted the bomb! Bloomberg and the rest of the douchebags on the left must be soooo disappointed!
UNREAL: Mayor Bloomberg: Bomber Was ‘Mentally Deranged Person Or Somebody With A Political Agenda Opposed To The Health Care Bill’
WOW. JUST WOW.
News Busters: From part of Couric’s interview with the mayor aired on the Monday, May 3 CBS Evening News:
KATIE COURIC: Law enforcement officials don’t know who left the Nissan Pathfinder behind, but, at this point, the mayor believes the suspect acted alone.
MAYOR MICHAEL BLOOMBERG: If I had to guess — 25 cents — this would be exactly that, somebody-
COURIC TO BLOOMBERG: A home-grown?
BLOOMBERG: Home-grown, maybe a mentally deranged person or somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something. It could be anything.U.S. citizen from Pakistan arrested in Times Square bomb case

A 30-year-old American immigrant from Pakistan was escorted off a plane bound for Dubai late Monday at John F. Kennedy International Airport and arrested in connection with a failed attempt to detonate a car bomb in Times Square, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. announced.
Authorities said Faisal Shahzad of Shelton, Conn., had paid cash for a Nissan Pathfinder that was found packed with explosives Saturday night on a tourist-crowded block in Midtown Manhattan. The vehicle was set ablaze but failed to detonate.
Officials located Shahzad after a sweeping two-day investigation that yielded what senior Obama administration officials described as a flood of international and domestic clues suggesting a plot involving more than one person. It was not immediately clear whether there was any link between Fahzad and videotapes that police circulated widely on Monday, showing men near the site of the attempted bombing who may have been acting suspiciously.
A U.S. official said tracing the origin of the Pathfinder was a crucial part of the investigation. Shahzad bought the vehicle through an Internet listing. He gave the seller a fake name, but an e-mail from the transaction included a phone number that was from a disposable cellphone. Extrapolating from telephone records, authorities found Shahzad and confirmed his identity with the seller, the official said.
Shahzad was apprehended aboard Emirates Flight 202. A spokesman for the United Arab Emirates embassy in Washington said Shahzad had planned to change planes in Dubai and fly to Islamabad. Shahzad been in Pakistan for several months in 2009, returning in February 2010, the official said.
"It was clear that the intent behind this terrorist act was to kill Americans," Holder said at a rare middle-of-the-night news conference at the Justice Department to announce the arrest.
Federal investigators said early Tuesday that they had executed a search warrant on Shahzad's home. Television news reports showed agents entering and leaving at least one home in the Bridgeport area.
In Pakistan, a news report on an English-language station said Shahzad has family links to the southern port city of Karachi. Pakistani officials said U.S. authorities have asked for their help investigating Shahzad, and they pledged cooperation.
The bomb attempt, which authorities said could have led to significant casualties if the explosives had detonated properly, bears some resemblance to the attempted bombing of an airliner in Detroit last Christmas, with citizen watchdogs earning much of the credit for averting the crisis and the White House scrambling to discover clues about a young male suspect with apparent ties that stretched beyond the United States.
The 48 hours from the discovery of the Pathfinder to Shahzad's capture combined old-fashioned shoe-leather detective work, sophisticated digging through telephone and electronic records and the latest link-ups between federal immigration, travel and border databases.
Authorities became aware of Shahzad's identity largely though researching the sale of the Pathfinder and tracing an e-mail account and disposable cell phone that he used. Armed with information about Shahzad's appearance, other identification information and his travel patterns, Customs and Border Protection officers at John F. Kennedy International Airport discovered he was aboard the Emirates flight Monday night. Authorities declined to say if he was traveling under his own name.
About the time Shahzad would have checked in for the scheduled 11:50 p.m. international departure, authorities began gearing up for a late-night arrest. It was only after Shahzad cleared airport security, boarded the flight, took his seat -- and perhaps took comfort in the thought he was leaving the country -- that agents confronted him and took him into custody.you can read the rest here...
