Details emerge of Pakistani Taliban's alleged role in Times Square bombing

So for a mere fifteen thousand dollars this Pakistani Taliban wannabe little bitch was willing to Kill who knows how many American's .

I say some serious Hellfire Missile Barrage's should be delivered to the Mohmand region of Pakistan in honor of Faisal Shazad's Little Jihad attempt !

Reporting from Washington
The main suspect in the attempted Times Square bombing received several days of training in Pakistan's Mohmand region and roughly $15,000 from the Pakistani Taliban to finance the attack, according to U.S. officials briefed on the case.

It appears likely that Faisal Shahzad, the Pakistani American accused of leaving a Nissan Pathfinder loaded with fertilizer and propane tanks in Times Square, came up with the idea of the car bomb himself, one official said. Shahzad then apparently persuaded the militant group to give him assistance when he traveled to Pakistan's border region in 2009 or early 2010.

"The targeting part of it was his," said one official briefed on the case, speaking on condition of anonymity. "But the guy was convincing enough to get resources."

The findings are part of a growing body of evidence that the Pakistani Taliban, known as Tehrik-e-Taliban, was deeply involved in the attempted bombing, the officials said, though they concede that key questions remain unanswered.

Investigators are still attempting to determine what role senior Pakistani Taliban leaders played in the operation.
