Good news, everybody! They arrested the guy who tried to blow up Times Square…
Federal agents and police detectives arrested [Faisal Shahzad] a Connecticut man, a naturalized United States citizen from Pakistan, early Tuesday in connection with the failed Times Square car bombing, according to people briefed on the investigation…
Mr. Shahzad was taken into custody at Kennedy Airport, apparently trying to flee, one of the people said. Charges against Mr. Shahzad, who had returned recently from a trip to Pakistan, were not announced.
There you go. He was just some guy who recently got back from a mysterious trip to his native country of Pakistan — where the U.S. is currently waging a CIA drone war against the Taliban — and the FBI arrested him on his way to the United Arab Emirates — where a bunch of people were just caught funneling money to, um, well… the Taliban.
But, we got him! So, everything's cool. Nothing at all to worry about from now
until the next timeon.
