NYC Suspects Held On Immigration Rap

From the ‘NY/Region’ section of the New York Times:

3 in Custody May Have Supported Bomb Suspect


May 13, 2010

Three Pakistani men taken into custody during a series of raids across the Northeast as part of the investigation into the failed Times Square car bombing may have provided money to the man who has admitted carrying out the unsuccessful attack, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said Thursday.

Mr. Holder said it was unclear if the men knew that the funds they provided were going to be used for an act of terrorism — one that Obama administration officials have said was aided and directed by the Pakistani Taliban. As of late Thursday, they were being detained on civil immigration violations and had not been charged with a crime

But they are being held “on civil immigration violations”? Where is the outrage?

Several people briefed on the case said that Faisal Shahzad, the naturalized Pakistani immigrant who the authorities say drove the crude car bomb into Times Square…

Notice how the New York Times is now describing Mr. Shahzad. All of a sudden he is no longer the SUV-driving, Connecticut family man.

[T]raveled to the suburban Long Island community of Ronkonkoma in the days before the failed May 1 attack to collect several thousand dollars in cash, some of which he used to finance his plan.

But the people could not say whether the person who provided that money was one of the men taken into custody, and it was unclear whether the person was aware of what Mr. Shahzad intended to do with the money.

Two of the men taken into custody in the early morning raids were picked up after one of two searches in the Boston area, part of a sweep in which Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and local police officers executed six search warrants there, in New Jersey and on Long Island. A third man was taken into custody in Maine…

What a tangled web we weave, once we practice Islamic terrorism.

    Didn’t an earlier article mention the terrorist Pakistan NY Times attacker took at least 13 trips to Pakistan. How did a terrorist like Shahzad, have the kind of money Obama, his large family & friends for longtime, ongoing flights across the globe.
