Times Square Bomber Caught

Overnight (past midnight) authorities announced the arrest of the suspected Times Square bomber. Ominously, the perp is an American citizen, incidentally.

Jurisdiction should be Southern District of New York. Waiting to see who will be the suspect's assigned counsel (assuming he does not have the funds for his own counsel).

The criminal charges against the suspect (who was caught only steps from the airport gate for a flight to Dubai) will be interesting to see. First, we should see a criminal complaint sworn to by a government agent (likely FBI). Any criminal information or indictment (both formal pleadings setting out the case in more legal and factual detail) should follow but only after convening of a grand jury - in other words, weeks if not months.

Let's see how much intelligence this man can/is willing to provide. Of course, expect him to quickly assert his Fifth Amendment rights, if he has not done so already. But there is always the issue of whether he has knowingly and voluntarily waived those rights if he has already begun to talk. The race (or the chess match) may already have begun.

Stay tuned.

UPDATE:  Within two days of the suspect's capture, we heard multiple reports about the content of the suspect's disclosures.   We are now starting to hear that the authorities are beginning to doubt at least some of what they have reportedly been told.   (Why some of this is getting out to the news media is also a serious concern, as raised by Congressman Peter King, and should warrant its own investigation.)
