Attempted NY Car Bombing Suspect Has Plead Guilty To Terror Charges

June 21, 2010

New York (ChattahBox) – The main suspect in an attempted car bombing in Time Square on May 1st has plead guilty to all charges, claiming that he wished to “to plead guilty and 100 times more”.

Pakistan-born Faisal Shahzad plead guilty to ten charges of terrorism and various weapons charges, after setting an SUV bomb that failed to detonate in NYC early last month.

Calling himself  “a Muslim soldier”, Shahzad told the courts that his attempted bombing was a message to the US to get out of Iraq and Afghanistan, in an attack directly related to al Qaeda.

According to court documents, he set three different bombs in an SUV in Times Square, then moved off to the side and waited for an explosion.

After two and a half minutes, he realized the plan had failed and retreated to Grand Central Station, where he took the train home.

He was arrested two days later, after his image was caught on a security camera.

He will be sentenced in October.
