NYC Car Bomb Suspect Pleads Guilty

Faisal Shahzad calls himself a Muslim soldier and warns U.S. to leave Muslim countries alone.


NYC car bomber Faisal Shahzad, plead guilty to carrying out the failed Times Square car bombing, leaving an ominous warning that if the U.S. does not leave Muslim lands alone, "we will be attacking U.S." He entered the plea days after being indicted by a federal jury on 10 terrorism and weapons counts. Some of these counts carry a mandatory life sentence. He plead guilty to all of the counts and admitted to conspiring with the Pakistani Taliban. He calls himself a "Muslim soldier," at war with the U.S. Lobbing threats while pleading guilty to a botched car bomb attack. There are no words.
