WATERTOWN – Three Pakistani men suspected of providing money to Times Square car bomb suspect Faisal Shahzad were arrested by the FBI in a series of Thursday morning raids across the Northeast, law enforcement officials said.Wow- that sure is racist of the folks at ICE. Wonder if Representative Raul Grijalva (D- Sonoran Cartel) will call for a boycott against Massachusetts, Maine or New York.
The searches in Massachusetts, New York and New Jersey were the product of evidence gathered in the investigation into the Times Square bomb attempt two weeks ago, but there was “no known immediate threat to the public or any active plot against the United States,” FBI spokeswoman Gail Marcinkiewicz said.
The three men – two in the Boston area and one in Maine – were arrested on suspected immigration violations, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Brian Hale said. They were not immediately charged with any crime, including any terrorism-related offenses.
It also has been reported in the Indian media that Faisal Shahzad was acquainted with the mastermind of the November 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India.
