U.S. Based Terror Plot

Terror suspect Faisal Shahzad arrested trying to flee New York

If you still have your head in the sand and think that terrorism against freedom only happens in places like the Middle East, the most recent plot in New York City should serve as a wake up call.

Faisal Shahzad was arrested at John F Kennedy Airport in New York on Monday night on charges that he drove a bomb-laden Nissan Pathfinder meant to kill innocent bystanders in Times Square.

The government held a press conference today announcing they have arrested Shahzad, a naturalized America citizen some 53 hours after the smoking car was discovered.  According to the press conference, he was identified on Sunday night.

Israeli citizens are constantly alert for suspicious objects.  That mentality needs to be quickly adopted by Americans.  Terror attempts will not go away.  I believe there is a false sense of security Americans believe they have since the 9-11 attacks.  The world has changed since then.  There is no going back.

However, this case only became public because a street vendor helped stopped a possible catastrophe.  We do not know how many attempted terror attacks have been prevented and have never been reporter on by news media.

People play an important role in the security of public places.  Be aware when you are in a public place.
