Faisal Shahzad Arrested For Times Square Terror Attack

The vehicle-borne improvised explosive device failed to detonate as expected. The terrorist failed in his attempt to flee the United States.

Faisal Shahzad, a U.S. citizen, originally from Pakistan, was arrested while at JFK International Airport attempting to board an Emirates flight to Dubai. Shahzad, 30, became a citizen on April 17, 2009. Just over a year later he attempted to kill his fellow citizens.

Shahzad will appear in court on Tuesday.

I just hope that they do not revoke his naturalization and deport him. He should be tried for treason (not attempted terrorism). It's probably also time for a strict review of policy relating to naturalization of people from "certain" countries.
