Timeline of events:
2004: Shahzad sells his CT condo to George Lamonica. A few weeks after he moves in the JTTF shows up, asking for details on the transaction and info on Shahzad.
2009: Becomes naturalized US citizen
May 2009: quits his job
Sept 2009: goes to Pakistan
Feb 3, 2010: returns to US
Why would the US allow him to become a naturalized citizen in 2009 if the JTTF jad already been investigating him in 2004?
Saturday, May 1st, 2010: Leaves in the truck ‘bomb’ (Nissan Pathfinder) a keychain with 20 keys on it and pre-paid cell phone
– One is key to his getaway car, a white Isuzu, which he leaves in NYC
– One is the key to a third car, which he drives to and leaves at airport
– One key is to his CT apartment
He also leaves in the car a pre-paid cell phone on which are:
– The number of a fireworks store he called, where CCTV later shows him buying fireworks
– The number he had previously given to US Customs when he returned from Pakistan.
Shahzad was identified through the VIN on the Nissan’s engine
– VIN led to previous owner of car who disclosed Shahzad’s phone number, which he had given when he bought the SUV, and later ID’s Shahzad by photo
May 4th: Shahzad manages to evade surveillance around his apartment. drives to Kennedy airport and purchases a last-minute ticket. He has already boarded the plane when the Feds determined he is on it and pull him out. He had been allowed to board despite being on a no-fly list.
He also left a loaded 9mm handgun behind in his car at the airport.
When Shahzad is apprehended, he claims he trained in terrorist camp in Pakistan and acted alone in the attempted truck bombing. He is charged with criminal offenses, not treated as a terrorist, and ‘co-operates’ with the police, giving them information. The following video says the pre-paid cell showed the number of a fireworks store he had called. The next video, below this one, shows him on surveillance camera at that store. Why would he call the store in advance? Just to leave the number on the phone so the police can show he was on surveillance camera there?
He had supposedly trained in bomb-making with terrorists in Pakistan, but when he returns to the US, he makes a pathetic mickey-mouse bomb and leaves all kinds of ridiculous evidence behind in the vehicle. What kind of training could he possibly have had if he ends up doing something so stupid? You could learn how to make a better bomb than that just from The Anarchists’ Cookbook.
The following report says he panicked when his car bomb fizzled. What does that mean? He had intended to blow himself up and panicked when the bomb didn’t go off? No, I don’t think so, or he wouldn’t have left a getaway car nearby. So, if he wasn’t going to blow himself up, he would have gotten all his stuff out of the car before setting off the bomb, which would mean that the bomb malfunctioning would be irrelevant to the location of his keys and cell phone. Otherwise, it would mean that, in a panic, he put his keys, including those to his house and a duplicate key to his other car, back into the ignition and left them there because the bomb didn’t go off.
He also left in his car the phone on which the investigators found the same number he had given to US Customs when he re-entered the US from Pakistan. How convenient.
The video below says he had to take a train home because he had locked his car keys in the Pathfinder, but the following article from the 4th of May stated:
“Keys found in the SUV’s ignition fit the car Shahzad left at the airport and a home in Connecticut.”
“Instead, he was at Kennedy International Airport preparing to fly to Dubai, having driven there not in the black Isuzu Rodeo the agents knew he had, but in another vehicle.”
So, apparently Shahzad had a third car. What makes no sense here is why he would leave all his keys in the Nissan, and then have duplicates to his house and a third vehicle, but not to the Isuzu. And, as I mentioned before, it makes no sense that he would leave all these keys in the Nissan ‘in a panic’ in the first place.
His inspiration for the attack? Muslim Cleric Al-Awlaki, the same one who inspired the Undie Bomber and the Fort Hood shooter. Looks like Al-Awlaki has a record of inspiring false flags.
As you can see on the footage below, Shahzad’s apartment was basically empty. Where were his wife and two kids this whole time? Obviously, they weren’t living in that place.
