The man who planted a car bomb in Times Square boasted that he thought it would kill at least 40 people and that he planned to detonate a second bomb two weeks after the first, prosecutors said Wednesday.
Faisal Shahzad (فيزال شازاد) should get life in prison when he is sentenced Tuesday, prosecutors said in a filing, arguing that he 'had every intention of delivering a powerful and terrorizing strike' in New York City.
The government noted that Shahzad showed no remorse when he pleaded guilty after confessing to investigators.Update: Sentenced to life in prison. He proclaimed "Allāhu Akbar" (الله أكبر) after being sentenced.
Included in the government submission was a 40-minute video in which Shahzad fires a machine gun in what appears to be the mountains of Pakistan as he announces that he has met members of the Pakistan Taliban and has decided 'we are going to raise an attack inside America.'"
