Arrest made in Times Square attack

Law enforcement officials have made an arrest.
A naturalized American citizen from Pakistan arrested overnight in the Times Square bombing investigation will appear in a Manhattan federal courtroom Tuesday morning to face formal charges in the case.

Faisal Shahzad, 30, was on board an Emirates Airlines plane at JFK International Airport when he was taken into custody, law enforcement officials said. A law enforcement official told CNN Shahzad's final destination was Pakistan.
I originally suspected that the attacker would be a militia-type, but I am happy to admit I was wrong. Instead, law enforcement is calling Shahzad a "lone wolf," which partly accounts for the crude design of the bomb.

Fine work by American law enforcement!
