Faisal Shazad Life Sentence: Times Square Bomber Faisal Shahzad Statement

Times Square bomber-wanna-be Faisal Shahzad has received a sentence of Life in Prison and has issued a statement making it clear why any Muslim-militant can NEVER be believed. Shazad is a naturalized American citizen. When asked about his pledge of allegiance to the U.S., Shahzad said "I did swear but I did not mean it." See a video below.

Faisal Shahzad

On May 1st Faisal Shahzad, 31, left a bomb in a 1993 Nissan Pathfiner and parked it in New York's busy Times Square. He walked away and waited for the explosion that never happened beyond a sputter.
He lit the fuse of his crude, homemade bomb, then fled on foot, pausing along the way to listen for the explosion that never came, court papers said.
A street vendor spotted smoke coming from the vehicle and alerted police, who quickly cleared the area. The bomb attempt set off an intense investigation that culminated two days later with investigators plucking Shahzad off a Dubai-bound plane at a New York airport.
Shazhad pleaded guilty, and said he hoped to kill at least forty people with the failed bomb which the FBI duplicated and said the explosion ripped a SUV in half, caused a huge fireball and "shredded" four other vehicles parked in the vicinity.
Unless the U.S. leaves Muslim lands alone, he warned, "we will be attacking U.S., and I plead guilty to that."

It is believed Shahzad married Huma Asif Mian in an "arranged" marriage on December 24, 2004. Mian was born in Colorado and recently graduated the University of Colorado with a degree in Accounting. Her father, Mohammad Asif Mian is a petroleum engineer "expert," who "registered Democrat," in Connecticut, will be incarcerated.  Shazhad told the court he believes only in Islamic Shariah law and Muslim "soldiers" will never accept democracy. There are reports that Huma Asif Mian fled to Pakistan.

Justice.gov has a detailed report on the failed bombing and the ten Federal charges. The second video below is believed to be Faisal Shahzad meeting with the nine-lived, celebrated terrorist, Hakimullah Mehsud.
