Faisal Shahzad Times Square bomb plot probe: FBI arrest 3 after raids on Mass., N.J., L.I. locations (http://www.nydailynews.com/ny_local/2010/05/13/2010-05-13_times_square_bomb_plot_probe_fbi_raids_boston_l ocation_in_possible_connection_to.html)

Three Pakistani nationals suspected of providing the Times Square car bomber with cash and cell phones were busted Thursday morning as FBI agents raided locations across the Northeast.

The suspects are being held on immigration charges for now but investigators are probing "what connections they have to Times Square," a federal source said.

That includes the possibility of steering money to accused terrorist Faisal Shahzad to fund his botched plot to kill tourists and theater-goers in Times Square, the source said.

Shahzad also used a disposable cell phone to take four calls from Pakistan on the day he bought the $1,300 SUV that was later loaded with explosives and parked on W. 45th St., officials said.

The agents hit at a half-dozen spots in a series of synchronized raids in Massachusetts, New Jersey and Long Island. Two suspects were busted in Massachusetts, while the third was arrested in Maine, said U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Brian Hale.

None faced any immediate criminal charges.

The raids on a gas station and a home outside Boston were tied to friends of Shahzad, who was arrested two days after the failed plot, sources told the Daily News.

Nearly two dozen agents with their guns drawn descended on the home in Watertown, Mass. One man was led out in handcuffs before agents seized computers and paperwork, neighbors said.

The FBI also targeted homes in Shirley and Centereach on Long Island, a location in Camden, N.J., and a business in nearby Cherry Hill, N.J., sources said.

The locations were identified as part of the ongoing investigation into the failed May 1 plot, officials said.

Ashim Chakraborry, a live-in landlord in Centereach, said a dozen FBI agents arrived at her home with car tires squealing around 7:30 a.m. They questioned her Pakistani-born tenant and his wife for four hours, and searched the couple's car and a shed in the rear of their two-story house.

After the agents left, a woman inside the first-floor apartment screamed at reporters to go away. "We've done nothing wrong!" she howled. "Go find the real terrorists!"

Chakraborry, 49, said she doubted her tenants had any terrorist links. "He's a very good guy," the landlord said. "He's a very hard-working man who takes care of his daughter."

The Long Island raids involved a hunt for the courier who provided Shahzad with money for his May 1 plot to blow up an SUV in the Crossroads of the World, sources told the News.

The suspect remained at large, a source told the News. But the raids did produce three arrests, all for alleged immigration violations, federal officials said.

It's patsies like these that get used to serve the greater purpose of perpetuating the war on terror to further implement a totalitarian state. Everybody involved on the ground is on the level (FBI, terrorist) but the theater that develops is used to benefit the greater goal of a complete civilian control grid. This story is just another brick in that wall.

Unless of course, you're still buying the governments account of 9/11 and the necessity of the Patriot Act that followed (not to mention Homeland Security) to combat the never-ending "war on terror". In that case, excuse me... I have to attend to my Unicorn's, it's feeding time.
