Attempted Times Square Bomber Aisal Shahzad Sentenced To Life In Prison


Aisal Shahzad, the man who attempted to detonate a bomb in Times Square, has been sentenced to life behind bars.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Shahzad pleaded guilty to a 10-count indictment in June including charges of conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction and attempting an act of terrorism.

The American citizen originally from Pakistan told the court before his sentencing,

“Brace yourselves, the war with Muslims has just begun,” and added that the defeat of the U.S. is “imminent.”

Shahzad was arrested on May 3 while attempting to board an International flight out of John F. Kennedy airport.

His arrest came just two days after authorities found a crudely made car bomb inside a smoking Nissan Pathfinder in the middle of Times Square.
