Times Square bomb suspect

Faisal ShahzadInvestigators are trying to determine any connections between a Pakistani-American charges in the failed Times Square car bombing and any international terrorist groups, possibly the Pakistani Taliban.  International relations Professor Adil Najam, director of the Pardee Center for the Student of the Longer-Range Future and editor of “Pakistanis in America: Portrait of a Giving Community,” spoke with WNYC radio in New York about suspect Faisal Shahzad (l.) and the danger of making assumptions about the Pakistani community in America.

“I think a key element here is for the media as well as society not to take an incident and extrapolate upon it to make large blanket statements about a community as a whole.”
