Muslim Terrorists Behind Boston Marathon Bombing Planned To Hit New York's Times Square

Confessed Boston Marathon Terrorist Intended to Bomb Times Square

While reports on Wednesday night suggested that the suspected Boston Marathon bombers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, planned to head to New York after their bombing in order to “party,” newer information suggests that their party may have involved bombing Times Square. Yesterday, New York Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said that the two had planned to “party,” and added, “There is some information that they may have been intent to come to New York but not to continue what they were doing. The information we received [from interrogating Dzhokhar] is something about a party – having a party. Something to the effect of coming to party in New York.”

But on Thursday, Rep. Peter King (R-NY) told Megyn Kelly of Fox News that police actually think that the Tsarnaev brothers wanted to set off bombs in Times Square. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Kelly are scheduled to hold a press conference early Thursday afternoon.


Boston bomb suspects also wanted to attack New York: officials

The two men suspected of carrying out last week's deadlyBoston Marathon bombing decided after authorities identified them to drive to Manhattan and set off additional explosives in Times Square, New York City officials said on Thursday.

Their plan unraveled only when they realized that a Mercedes sport utility vehicle they had hijacked on April 18, three days after the bombing, did not have enough gasoline for the journey, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said.

New York has been on heightened alert since the September 11, 2001, hijacked plane attacks that destroyed the World Trade Center. Officials said the Tsarnaev brothers' alleged impromptu plan showed America's most populous city remained a magnet for those who want to strike at the United States.
