Suspect Charged for Failed Car Bombing

That was fast: Faisal Shahzad, the suspect in the failed Times Square car bombing, has been charged, according to court documents. Shahzad had already admitted that he was the man who tried to set off the car bomb in Times Square. Attorney General Eric Holder says Shahzad will face terrorism and weapons of mass destruction charges. Questions remain about how Shahzad got on an airplane that almost took off for Dubai; he was added to the No-Fly list hours before his arrest. Also, Pakistan has detained seven or eight people including a woman in the city of Karachi in relation to the investigation. At least two of these people had been in contact with Shahzad in person and by email.
