    Your input is invaluable. Have you seen the CCTV video? Apparently, the man suffered from male pattern baldness quite severely.

    That man does look very suspicious.

    Yup it's a tea party nutcase who thinks Obama wasn't born in America.

    No doubt about it.

    The Nissan Pathfinder that carried a bomb into New York's Times Square was sold to an "Arabic or Latino looking" man in his 20s or 30s last month in Connecticut, authorities say the vehicle's previous owners told them.

    Firstly its extremely amateurish, a hodgepodge of different types of explosives: fireworks, black powder, propane tanks, and NO shrapnel around the explosives.
    None of these are particularly explosive and probably won't do much damage, in fact the SUV these were packed it would probably do more to contain the explosion than expand it. A propane tank would probably make more of a fire ball than dangerous explosion, the fireworks and black powder would do the same. Especially if the propane or fireworks were ignited first, it would blow the black powder for a split second and reduce its effectiveness.
    If the the goal of this was to kill people it would have been built differently, or it means the bomb makers dont know what they are doing.

    Additionally, all overseas terrorists that have come to this country have been suicide attackers, this guy ran from the vehicle after he planted it. Also most IEDs in Iraq and Afghanistan these days aren't timed bombs, they are built with triggers so they can be set off at any time. I keep with IED attacks and disarmed bombs through the Army and timed explosives are very very uncommon.

    Lastly homegrown terrorists tend to be more concerned about their lives than Afghan, Pakistanis, or AQ in general. If this was someone from overseas it would have almost certainly been a suicide bomber. Its also unlikely that someone sent a bomb maker to the US, those people are valuable and most are trained and experienced in converting military explosives into IEDs, not propane tanks and fireworks.

    I don't know anything other than open source but in my experience and education this says homegrown terrorist, I could even see this as someone without a terrorist agenda.
    I very much agree with this. Radical Islamic terrorism is rarely this amateurish. This definitely has the marks of attempted domestic terrorism behind it. As far as what the perpetrator's motives are, who knows?
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    FOXNews.com - Pakistani Arrested in Times Square Bomb Plot

    "A Pakistani man believed to be the driver of an SUV used as a car bomb in a failed terror attack on Times Square was taken into custody early Tuesday by federal and local police officials while trying to leave the country.

    The suspect, Faisal Shahzad, was identified by customs agents at John F. Kennedy International Airport and was stopped before boarding an Emirates airlines flight to Dubai, Attorney General Eric Holder said. Shahzad had recently returned from a five-month trip to Pakistan, where he had a wife."


    "The SUV was parked near offices of Viacom Inc., which owns Comedy Central. The network recently aired an episode of the animated show "South Park" that the group Revolution Muslim had complained insulted the Prophet Muhammad by depicting him in a bear costume."


    Mother f---ers.

    We'll see if this turns out to be the guy, but I have a feeling it is.

    BBC News - Times Square bomb suspect arrested in New York

    A Pakistani US citizen with possible ties to foreign organizations with terrorist intent against the US government. It looks like my theory on him not being connected to foreigner organizations directly, is about to go out the window.

    Lame. I was sure this guy was either purely homegrown, maybe read some foreign material online or whatever, or just some crazy wacko with an agenda not connected to Islamic terrorism.

    I was sure he was the crazy wacko.

    If the guy had been purely homegrown and a crazy American wacko, the bomb probably would have been built with a little more attention to detail and in good working order.
