Before today I never realized that the Anger over Obamacare was worldwide. NY Mayor Bloomberg suggests that the man who has been Identified as the Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad, may have done so because he hated Obamacare, hinting that it was those violent “tea partiers” behind the attempted bombing.  Fox News is reporting that 4-8 more people have been arrested in Pakistan, two related to Shahzad. Makes you wonder why they hate Obamacare so much in Pakistan.

Faisal Shahzad, 30, is being held in New York after he was arrested while apparently trying to flee the country to Dubai from John F Kennedy International Airport. A law enforcement official familiar with the investigation told Reuters that Shahzad had effectively admitted to all the charges.

‘He’s admitted to buying the truck, putting the devices together, putting them in the truck, leaving the truck there and leaving the scene,’ the source told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity.

‘He’s claimed to have acted alone. He did admit to all the charges, so to speak,’ the source said, adding that investigators were still looking into his activities during a recent trip to Pakistan.

Shahzad told investigators he acted alone and denied any ties to radical groups in his native Pakistan, the official said.
Between four and eight people have been taken into custody for questioning in Pakistan in connection with the investigation of the Times Square bombing attempt, sources told CBS News.

Authorities are not saying who the potential suspects are or where they are being held, but they say there were raids Monday night and Tuesday morning in different locations. Some of them reportedly may be related to suspect Faisal Shahzad, the Pakistani-born U.S. citizen who was arrested overnight in New York.

Also, a man was arrested in Karachi for his connection to the bombing attempt, Pakistani intelligence sources told Fox News.

According to Fox News at least two of those 4-8 people arrested in Pakistan are blood relatives of Mr.Shahzad. It is still not know why they hate Obamacare.

Although some people are sad that it wasn’t a Tea Partier, like Contessa Brewer of MSNBC (H/T Hot Air)
