Accomplice to the Times Square bomber admitted in writing to the Boston police in 1991 that he was an illegal alien, but was allowed to stay in the country

May 19, 2010

    Last week there was a “terror sweep” in Boston that resulted in the arrest of three men who were funneling money to Faisal Shahzad– the Times Square terrorist and would be bomber.

  There is one very interesting twist to this story, and I first heard about this twist on Michael Graham’s Boston talk radio show this morning. One of the men who was arrested in connection to the Times Square attempted Bombing was So Pir Khan– who applied for a taxi medallion– admitted in writing when he filled  out his application for that medallion that he had come to the United States illegally. This application was submitted to the Boston police, and even though he admitted to being an illegal immigrant no action was taken against him. He was granted his taxi medallion and the rest is history.

  Embedding of the video that I provided is prohibited, but just click on the link provided in the video and you will be able to view it.

  Massachusetts is basically a sanctuary state for illegal aliens– the woman that Scott Brown defeated for the “people’s seat” in Massachusetts, Attorney General Martha Coakley, admitted as much when she stated that “it’s not illegal to be illegal in Massachusetts”– so it is not surprising, although it is more than a little disturbing that no action was taken against  So Pir Khan.

  So Pir Khan was allowed to stay in Massachusetts even though the Boston police knew that he was in the United States illegally. This allowed him to funnel money to Faisal Shahzad to fund the attempted bombing of Times Square. He was in the country illegally and while working in  a gas station he  had enough cash on him to buy shares in Boston taxi medallions to the tune of $190,000, yet still no red flags were raised. He doubled his money when he sold those shares a few short years later– still no red flags.

  It is by sheer dumb luck that the Times Square bombing attempt was unsuccessful, we have nobody to thank but the incompetence of Faisal Shahzad that this attempt was not successful; not Homeland Security and certainly not the Boston police or Massachusetts’s virtually non-existant immigration policies.

  One has to think that if Massachusetts had an immigration policy that mirrored the new  “controversial” Arizona immigration law that Faisal Shahzad would never have received the funding he needed to get as far as he did in his bombing attempt. If Massachusetts law mirrored Arizona’s, the Boston police would have had the probable cause to arrest  So Pir Khan before he ever had the opportunity to partially fund the Times Square bombing attempt.

  There is either a serious flaw in the immigration policy of this country, or a total lackadaisical attitude in enforcing those laws at the federal level– probably both– is it any wonder that Arizona felt it necessary to take matters into their own hands?
