Even A Blind Squirrel Finds An Occasional Nut! Looks Like Times Square Bomber Was Most Likely Part Of An International Plot.

Oh darn, looks like the wingnut team scores! No, seriously, isn't it just a little wacky that some people are more interested in who they get to blame

Oh darn, looks like the wingnut team scores! No, seriously, isn't it just a little wacky that some people are more interested in who they get to blame than in the fact that someone tried to blow up Times Square? It doesn't rock my world at all that I was wrong about it being a teabagger (or Wile E. Coyote) - but had it gone the other way, you can be sure the Freepers would be in quite a froth, trying to come up with some way to deny reality!

Federal authorities are closing in on the man they say is a person of interest in the Times Square car bomb attempt this weekend, who is described as a naturalized American citizen who hails from Pakistan and just returned after spending five months there.

There is growing evidence the bomber did not act alone and had ties to radical elements overseas, with one senior official telling ABC News there are several individuals believed to be connected with the bombing and that at least one of them is a Pakistani-American.

Attorney General Eric Holder said today the investigators had made "substantial progress" in tracking the man who drove a Nissan Pathfinder into New York's Times Square with a crude bomb that failed to detonate.

Officials declined to provide the specifics that led them to believe there were overseas links to a larger plot.
