Would-Be Times Square Bomber Pleads Guilty

Faisal Shahzad, already guilty in the world court of Self-Defeating Terrorists, has pleaded guilty to a ten-count indictment on terrorism charges. According to Shawna Thomas of NBC, the Justice Department didn’t offer him any deal, but is surely happy to secure the conviction and possible life imprisonment of the would-be terrorist.

This is obviously another crucial failure for a law-enforcement-based response to terrorism.

Update: From the Justice Department:

“Faisal Shahzad plotted and launched an attack that could have led to serious loss of life, and today the American criminal justice system ensured that he will pay the price for his actions,” Attorney General Eric Holder said. “We will not rest in bringing to justice terrorists who seek to harm the American people, and we will use every tool available to the government to do so.”
