Pakistani-born suspect is caught for the Times Square bomb

· Authorities caught the suspect in the botched Times Square bombing, seizing a Pakistani-American citizen moments before he was set
to begin a long trip to Pakistan.

· Faisal Shahzad, 30, was arrested last night at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport.

· He was on board a flight when law enforcement called the plane back to the gate.

· Shahzad appears in federal court today.

· Cell phone calls helped lead police to the suspect in the failed bombing attempt.

· The Nissan Pathfinder had its VIN number removed from the dashboard; police climbed under the SUV and retrieved the VIN from the
bottom of its engine block.

· This breakthrough led investigators to the vehicle's registered owner and then to Shahzad, who purchased the SUV 3 weeks ago.

Please let's not perpetuate the stereotype. We have plenty of home grown terrorists that no one ever focuses on. All I ever hear about is Mexico (illegal aliens) and the Middle East (terrorists). Can we focus on the Canadians? How about the folks who are home grown and become traitors?
