Shahzad

Faisal Shahzad, who has spent the last two weeks under guard at a Brooklyn hotel, told his interrogators he was surprised the haphazardly constructed device didn’t detonate — and begged them to explain where he went wrong, a law-enforcement source told The Post.

hahahahah what a piece of work. I hope they told him some clever lie, just to infuriate him.

I wonder why they have had him under guard at a hotel for the past 2 weeks? Why isn’t he in jail? Preferably not in protective custody.

I put the 2 pictures together in photoshop, as a before and after.  Doesn’t look like hes having such a great time anymore does it? :P

Looks like it would be an interesting place to work.  A few hundred cameras is a long way from the amount in the UK… but still I imagine that is their goal.  Pretty troubling that they feel there is actually a requirement for that.

It’s amazing but true: we can prevent terror suspects from boarding an airplane, but the FBI doesn’t have the power to block them from buying dynamite or an AK-47.

Not true Mayor Bloomberg… you actually can’t prevent terror suspects from boarding airplanes, and that is evident by the fact that recent Times Square bomb plot suspect Faisal Shahzad was able to board a Dubai-bound flight at JFK airport in your own city (Source).

I’m all for “closing the terror gap” when taken at face value… but in reality rather than buying new guns and risk being caught, terrorists will just start purchasing guns used (stolen or otherwise) or obtaining them through a legal 3rd party (also known as a straw purchase).  Just like other criminals, terrorists obviously do not care about the law, so circumventing it to get what they want is not going to faze them.

I can’t help but be suspicious that closing the terror gap will also mean more restrictions put on the rest of us.

Another problem is that currently the terror watch list is a huge joke. There are thousands of people on the list that shouldn’t be on there.  Should they be denied the right to purchase a gun?  Remember 8 year old Mikey Hicks?

It is fearsome looking, a carbine hybrid of a pistol and a long gun with a mouthful of a name: the Kel-Tec Sub Rifle 2000. Mr. Shahzad bought it, new, in March for about $400. It was found in the Isuzu Trooper that he drove to Kennedy International Airport on Monday, loaded, with multiple extra clips.

Extra clips?  Did he also own an SKS or something? :P

Pretty funny how the entire article demonizes the Kel-Tec Sub-2000. I have come to expect more quality from the NY Times;  most of their articles mentioning guns have been fair and informative lately.
