Justice: Bin Laden Taken Out By Navy Seals

Declaring “justice has been done,” President Obama announced late Sunday that Usama bin Laden was killed by U.S. forces in Pakistan, marking the end of the worldwide manhunt that began nearly a decade ago on Sept. 11, 2001.

The president made the stunning announcement within hours of informing congressional leaders. He said bin Laden was killed Sunday, the culmination of years of intelligence gathering. The news drew a large crowd to the front of the White House, as well as in Times Square, as people chanted “USA. USA.”

Rot. In. Hell.

Racist FBI & ICE Agents Arrest Illegal Immigrants In Connection With Times Square Bomb Plot

Deval Patrick looks like a bigger dunce than usual today.  It was just two days ago that he accused supporters of the Arizona immigration law as “trying to invent a villain for political purposes.’’  Today, three (Amish?) men were taken into custody on immigration violations in connection with the failed Times Square bombing – in his own backyard.

Three men were taken into custody on immigration violations today after raids in Watertown, Brookline and other parts of the Northeast in connection with the attempted May 1 Times Square bombing, according to the FBI and state officials. 

One suspect arrested in the Bay State today had previously been ordered out of the country, a federal source tells the Herald. 

FBI Boston Special Agent Gail Marcinkiewicz confirmed today’s sweep is linked to the failed bombing in bustling Times Square.

Someone may want alert Marsha Coakley as just the other day she told a local radio host that “Technically, it is not illegal to be illegal in Massachusetts.”  ICE and the FBI must have missed that memo.

Federal agents and police detectives arrested 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.

The man, Faisal Shahzad, was believed to have recently bought the 1993 Nissan Pathfinder that was found loaded with gasoline, propane, fireworks and fertilizer in the heart of Times Square, one of the people briefed on the development said.

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 goes Janet Incompetano’s “one off” theory…this has all the makings of a larger plot.

Update: Family members and a friend of Shahzad have been arrested in Pakistan

Pakistan on Tuesday arrested several relatives of the Pakistani-American held in New York on suspicion of driving a bomb-laden car into Times Square, security sources said.

Faisal Shahzad, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Pakistan, told U.S. authorities he acted alone in Saturday’s failed bombing but skeptical investigators are looking into his recent trip to Pakistan, a U.S. law enforcement source said.

Shahzad, 30, was arrested late on Monday night after he was taken off an Emirates airline plane that was just about to take off for Dubai. Hours later, several relatives and a friend were arrested in Pakistan. [ID:nSGE6430EA]

“We have picked up a few family members” related to Shahzad, a security official in Karachi said. A friend of Shahzad was also detained.

Shahzad is from the disputed Kashmiri region but it is not known if he was affiliated with any militant group, a source familiar with the investigation said on Tuesday. The source asked not to be named because the issue is sensitive.

Hasan Sent Money To Pakistan?

Dallas Morning News/Via Hot Air

WASHINGTON – Authorities have been examining whether Fort Hood massacre suspect Nidal Malik Hasan wired money to Pakistan in recent months, an action that one senior lawmaker said would raise serious questions about Hasan’s possible connections to militant Islamic groups.

Rep. Pete Hoekstra, R-Mich., said sources “outside of the [intelligence] community” learned about Hasan’s possible connections to the Asian country, which faces a massive Islamist insurgency and is widely believed to be Osama bin Laden’s hiding place.

Hoekstra, the ranking Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, would not identify the sources. But he said “they are trying to follow up on it because they recognize that if there are communications – phone or money transfers with somebody in Pakistan – it just raises a whole other level of questions.”
