"Reporting from New York A Pakistani-born U.S. citizen charged with planting a car bomb in Times Square said Monday that he was a "Muslim soldier" who plotted the attack for months and was prepared to shoot if anyone tried to stop him after he abandoned his explosives-laden SUV on a busy Manhattan corner.
"In a calm but defiant tone, Faisal Shahzad, 30, pleaded guilty to all 10 charges stemming from the May 1 plot and warned that it was one small part of a war being waged by Muslims against Americans. As long as U.S. forces remain active in Iraq, Afghanistan and other Muslim countries, "we will be attacking" the United States, he told U.S. District Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum in a packed Manhattan courtroom."
