Interestingly enough, it was parked outside Viacom, where they product offensive garbage like South Park and MTV.

It it was a Muslim who did this (it usually is), they're probably mad about some Mohammed jokes on a cartoon. As we saw with the rioting and murders all over Europe a few years ago, a simple comic strip can send millions of them them into riots and killing sprees.

Re: The "almost" Times Square Bomb

Back to the attempt, I wonder if he planned on being a suicide bomber, and when it did not go as planned he tried to get out of town; or if he was trying to avoid the blast altogether. If the vehicle had blown up, finding the VIN of the specific vehicle would have been a humongous undertaking. Assuming this guy is the right guy, then good job piecing it all together that quickly.

of course when the american white guys do it we just call them "disgruntled and angry" or that they just have "some misguided gripes with the government" instead of calling them what they are (Terrorists, yea, i went capital T).

btw, when we invade and demolish another country based on trumped up phoney evidence on WMD and cuz we want regime change, and hundreds of thousands of innocents die in the process, i guess that's just "foreign policy" and not terrorism.
woah woah woah, stop being objective.

Re: The "almost" Times Square Bomb

So how did this guy manage to get on the plane when he was on the no-fly list? Apparently the carrier or airport didn't have an updated list? He bought a one way ticket to Pakistan with cash... isn't a transaction like that supposed to set off all sorts of red flags??

Just glad they caught the guy.

Re: The "almost" Times Square Bomb

Here is one scenario, still doesn't explain the getting on the actual plane though: The FBI/Homeland Security had the airport wanted him to go through security so that they knew he had no explosives or weapons etc.

Of course if Jack Bauer had been in charge (and it wasn't the last episode) he would have gotten on the plane as Jack was running through the airport yelling "Turn that plane around NOW"!
I love 24, and imagine that this investigation was done at nearly as hectic a pace as that show runs at.

Re: The "almost" Times Square Bomb

8.5 years later and we're still getting our shit together. to think most of us have dealt with all the "inconveniences" of extra security and yet it seems some of the basics aren't getting done. like that xmas underwear bomber guy. didn't his DAD call the freakin Feds to say he thought his son would do something? meanwhile they're makin my 80-year-old father inlaw throw away his shaving cream.

Well as is always the case, if someone is intent on doing something evil, and is willing to sacrifice his/her life, it is very difficult to stop them. I fly a couple times a year, and it's amazing how quickly people got used to taking off belts, shoes etc.
