The failed N.Y. car bomber Faisal Shahzad was told by the Pakistani Taliban to pay cash for everything to avoid leaving a trail, the Los Angles Times is reporting.

“He paid cash for his gun and he paid cash for the van he acquired,” a source told the Times. “He was told to be very careful about not letting anything track back to him. No receipts, and no paper. No nothing.”

Attorney Gen. Eric Holder Jr. hit the Sunday morning talk show circuit and said the Pakistani Taliban was intimately involved in the plot.
