Faisal Shahzad, who pleaded guilty to trying to blow up a sport utility vehicle carrying a homemade bomb in May in Times Square, thick with Saturday visitors, was sentenced on Tuesday morning to spend the rest of his life in prison. Remaining defiant, and smirking as the sentence was read, he told the court: “Brace yourselves, because the war with Muslims has just begun.”
He later continued: “The defeat of the U.S. is imminent and will happen in the near future.”
Mr. Shahzad, 30, was sentenced by Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum in Federal District Court in Manhattan. As those filling the courtroom listened, she told Mr. Shahzad, “You are a young man, and you will have a lot of time to reflect about what you have said today, and what you have done.”

Earlier this year, the CIA admitted “creating a fake video in which intelligence officers dressed up as Osama Bin Laden and his cronies in an effort to defame the terrorist leader,” Paul Jospeh Watson wrote on May 25. “This latest revelation bolsters evidence that the intelligence agencies, and perhaps more significantly, the military have been engaged in creating fake Bin Laden videos in the past.”
It is said Osama no longer produces video tapes because they may reveal his whereabouts. “Over recent years, bin Laden has issued audio tapes but no videos, after it emerged that the CIA was trying to identify where he was hiding by looking at the vegetation in videos he had released. In more than 30 audio and video tapes, he has warned European countries and the US about attacks and praised previous ones, although he has never talked of a preferred method,” reports the Telegraph.
