Apparently you missed the lead-up from the news.
Couric: Law enforcement officials don’t know who left the Nissan Pathfinder behind, but, at this point, the mayor believes the suspect acted alone.
Bloomberg: If I had to guess — 25 cents — this would be exactly that, somebody –
Couric: A home-grown?
Bloomberg: Home-grown, maybe a mentally deranged person or somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something. It could be anything.

Tuesday, May 4, 2010
NEW YORK — Mayor Michael Bloomberg says New York City "will not tolerate any bias" following the arrest of a U.S. citizen from Pakistan in the Times Square car bombing attempt.
Bloomberg said Tuesday that also applies to potential backlash against Muslim New Yorkers.
The mayor said there are "a few bad apples" among any groups. He also cited New York’s long history of accepting cultures from the around the world.
Of course bias against crazy redneck racist ‘teabaggers’ people opposed to ‘healthcare reform’ is perfectly acceptable.
Isn’t it odd? All we hear from Mr. Holder about Mr. Shahzad is that he is an American citizen.Holder’s Statement Avoided ‘The P-Word’
May 4, 2010
WASHINGTON — Here is the text of Attorney General Eric Holder’s announcement Tuesday of the arrest of Faisal Shahzad in the attempted car bombing in Times Square:
Earlier this evening, Faisal Shahzad was arrested in connection with the attempted car bombing in New York on Saturday. Mr. Shahzad, an American citizen, was taken into custody at JFK Airport in New York as he attempted to board a flight to Dubai.
Not that he is from Pakistan. Not that he has recently returned from several months in Pakistan.
Probably Mr. Holder was trying to avoid any possible ‘backlash’ against Pakistanis.
