|Blamed on||Faisal Shahzad, Taliban|
|Description||Amateurish terrorist attack stated to be by Faisal Shahzad. Judging from from track history, FBI agent provocateur involvement always worth keeping in mind.|
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. The bomb had been ignited, but failed to explode, and was disarmed before it caused any casualties."
Two days later federal agents arrested Faisal Shahzad for the crime.
