Times Square Bomber paid by Pakistani Taliban....

This is from the US Federal Indictment...
The suspect in the attempted bombing of Times Square received $12,000 from the Pakistani Taliban to carry out the plot, according to a federal indictment released Thursday that formally charges Faisal Shahzad with receiving training and support from the militant group.

The indictment includes 10 separate charges, double the number of counts in the initial criminal complaint that was filed against Shahzad three days after a Nissan Pathfinder packed with explosives was left smoldering in one of the busiest intersections in New York.

"The facts alleged in this indictment show that the Pakistani Taliban facilitated Faisal Shahzad's attempted attack on American soil," Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said in a written statement.

The new charges accuse Shahzad, 30, of conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction, of being armed with a high-tech 9-millimeter rifle and of committing an act of terrorism "transcending national boundaries." According to the document, he received training in the Pakistani region of Waziristan in December from "explosive trainers affiliated with Tehrik-e-Taliban," an alternate name for the militant group.
