A suspect has been arrested in the case of the foiled New York City car bombing attempt. Faizal Shahzad was arrested as he was attempting to board a plane for Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Something interesting did come out of this article:
In Pakistan, Interior Minister Rehman Malik said authorities had not been formally asked for help in the probe.
“When the request comes, we will cooperate with the U.S. government,” he told the AP.
This leads me to believe that the scope of the conspiracy may have been limited. In fact, it could have been based from the tri-state area, not Peshawar.
