Times Square Bomber Had Pakistani Army, U.S. Embassy Connections

A Pakistani Army Major, as well as a caterer for the U.S. embassy in Pakistan, have been arrested in connection with the investigation into the Times Square Bomber according to the New York Times.

Additionally, the Air Force officer father of Faisal Shahzad, the Times Square Bomber, also knew the arrested Army Major personally.

Mr. Shahzad is the son of a retired senior Pakistani Air Force officer, and it appeared that the arrested army major was an acquaintance of Mr. Shahzad’s father, according to a British terrorism expert, Sajjan Gohel, who is familiar with the investigation into the Times Square bombing.

The major may have helped Mr. Shahzad get in touch with the Pakistani Taliban and may have helped him travel to North Waziristan, Mr. Gohel said.

It is also stated in the article that "the nation’s premier spy agency, Inter-Services Intelligence, is in charge of the investigation of the case, Pakistani officials have said."

The ISI itself has often been mentioned in connection with the 9/11 Hijackers, the Taliban and also Al-Qaeda which was originally created by both them and the CIA to fight the Soviets in Afghanistan. Lt. Gen. Mahmood Ahmed, Ex-Director of the ISI, has also been accused of funneling money to Mohammed Atta in connection with the 9/11 terror plot.

So what's the conundrum we are left with here? A 9/11 terror connected spy agency with close ties to the CIA is investigating the possible Pakistani Army and U.S. Embassy connections of the Times Square Bomber, who is accused of working in collusion with the Taliban, who were supported by the ISI itself.

Welcome to the so-called War on Terror.
