Official Narrative

Wikipedia reports that this was "a planned terrorist attack which was foiled when two street vendors discovered a car bomb and alerted a New York Police Department (NYPD) patrolman to the threat after they spotted smoke coming from a vehicle.[1][2] The bomb had been ignited, but failed to explode, and was disarmed before it caused any casualties.[1][3][4]"

Two days later federal agents arrested Faisal Shahzad for the crime.
