New York – In the end, it was secret Army intelligence planes that got a hold of Times Square terror suspect Faisal Shahzad, and did him in.
According to CBS News, The U.S. Army Armed with Shahzad’s cell phone number, circled the skies over the New York area, intercepting a call to Emirates Airlines reservations, before scrambling to catch him at John F. Kennedy International Airport.
Charges against Faisal Shahzad, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Pakistan, were contained in a criminal complaint filed Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan.
The complaint says he confessed to buying an SUV, rigging it with a homemade bomb and driving it Saturday night into Times Square, where he tried to detonate it. It also says he admitted to receiving bomb-making training in Waziristan, Pakistan, but there is no mention of al-Qaida.
Officials said Tuesday that Shahzad, 30, is providing “useful” information in his interrogation. When they detained him, they found a gun in his car and other incriminating evidence.
