Here's His Mug (UPDATED)

Faisal Shahzad, the (alleged) terrorist who drove a car bomb into Times Square around dinner time on Saturday evening, was already on board a flight to Dubai when he was arrested by federal agents and police detectives last night just before midnight. Destination? Pakistan, his native country before he became a naturalized U.S. citizen last year and where he had recently spent five months.

New York City's Mayor Bloomberg was happy enough, saying that law enforcement's "swift efforts led to this arrest after only 48 hours of around-the-clock investigation.” Good thing New York's finest didn't follow the leadership of their commander in chief too carefully. Only yesterday he was all too willing to point the finger at a "homegrown" terrorist.
"If I had to guess, twenty five cents, this would be exactly that," Bloomberg said. "Homegrown maybe a mentally deranged person or someone with a political agenda that doesn't like the health care bill or something. It could be anything."
That was after the Pakistani Taliban took credit for the attempted bombing.

The MSM is reporting that Shahzad, who has been living in Sheldon, Connecticut, will be arraigned today in Manhattan federal court.

Update (2:25 p.m. Eastern): Snarky Basterd had a few observations about this visage:
Just look at this guy.

He's obviously white, over 40, and must own a lot of guns. His favorite movie probably is Deliverance. I'll bet he can render the "Squeal like a pig!" line with conviction. Why even his name screams racist mobster from some southern flyover red state: Faisal Shahzad.
Read the rest. You deserve a break today.

  1. What! Not some deranged Tea Bag Party member!

  2. Oh, come on! We all know that the real terrorists are fiscal conservatives and opponents of the health bill... They're the ones who really knocked down the WTC on 9/11!

  3. Dude should be called the Unibrow Bomber. Thanks for the linkage, man.
