Bomber Admits Terror Motive

Shahzad, who rather infamously hates George W. Bush, was inspired to bomb Times Square by the drone attacks he saw carried out against the Taliban in Pakistan on the orders of the Obama Administration:

It was payback.

The Connecticut man charged yesterday with the botched Times Square car bombing confessed to trying to slaughter innocent people in retaliation for US drone attacks that wiped out the leadership of his beloved Taliban, The Post has learned.

Admitted terrorist Faisal Shahzad -- who copped to training in explosives in the past year with Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan, the leading extremist Islamic group in his native Pakistan -- said he was driven to evil by the slew of deaths among leaders of the terror group, law-enforcement sources revealed yesterday.

His training came in a tribal area where American drone aircraft have pummeled members of the Pakistan Taliban and al Qaeda in the past year.

The article goes on to mention that the current Administration is downplaying Shahzad's motive, no doubt hoping to stem of the chorus of "I told you so!" yips from his anti-war left flank. Obama has not only validated the Bush Administration's use of drone warfare in Afghanistan and Pakistan, but escalated it significantly with brutal effect.

Comments know this just won't fly, it just does not fit 'teh angry white, teabagger' scenario.

I am rather surprised ol Faisal survived his Bomb Building 101AfPaK course.

You think they passed & packed the askhole off before he had a work-accident which blew-up the staff & class?

Obviously sir, you know nothing about bombs. That guy made a fire hazard at worst. I think the whole thing was terifically funny and laughed when I started hearing about how he had designed the fireworks display.
His motives? I'm sorry, did everyone forget we now have a few million Muslims in this country and their loyalities will lay with Islam first, and us second, always. To a Muslim, paybacks come first and formost forever. Not hard to understand the savagery in that, you just got to believe it.

As Achmed the Dead Terrorist says: "New guy."
But this new guy seems to have trouble blowing up anything other than the Left's "The Teabaggers did it!" theory
