Faisal Shahzad, who pleaded guilty to trying to blow up a sport utility vehicle carrying a homemade bomb in May in Times Square, thick with Saturday visitors, was sentenced on Tuesday morning to spend the rest of his life in prison. Remaining defiant, and smirking as the sentence was read, he told the court: “Brace yourselves, because the war with Muslims has just begun.”
He later continued: “The defeat of the U.S. is imminent and will happen in the near future.”
Mr. Shahzad, 30, was sentenced by Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum in Federal District Court in Manhattan. As those filling the courtroom listened, she told Mr. Shahzad, “You are a young man, and you will have a lot of time to reflect about what you have said today, and what you have done.”
