Times Square Bomber Pleads Guilty

Shortly after he was arrested on May 3, he confessed to planting a car bomb in Times Square. After that, he spent many a day cooperating with the FBI.

So it came as no great surprise on Monday when  Faisal Shahzad pleaded guilty in New York to a 10-count indictment, admitting to plotting to detonate a car bomb in a busy section of Manhattan on a Saturday night.

“Faisal Shahzad plotted and launched an attack that could have led to serious loss of life, and today the American criminal justice system ensured that he will pay the price for his actions,” Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement. “We will not rest in bringing to justice terrorists who seek to harm the American people, and we will use every tool available to the government to do so.”

The government had alleged that a Pakistani with ties to the Pakistani Taliban had sent Shahzad about $12,000 before he carried out the unsuccessful plot.

The New York Times reported that he entered the plea around 4:30 p.m.

“He sat at a table and drummed his fingers on the surface as his lawyer Philip Weinstein conferred with Judge Miriam Goldman Cederbaum and a prosecutor,” the Times reported.
