The Al-Arabiya TV station says it has video of the failed Times Square car bomb suspect meeting with Pakistani Taliban leaders along the Afghan border.

Al-Arabiya broadcast excerpts showing Faisal Shahzad saying he planned a "revenge attack" against the U.S. that he hoped would touch the hearts of Muslims.

Shahzad appears in the clips sitting on the ground in a black turban and military fatigues, with a gun next to him as he reads verses from the Quran.

The station also says Shahzad appears in part of the 40-minute video that it did not broadcast with a prominent Pakistani Taliban leader in the tribal regions along the Afghan border.

In June, Shahzad pleaded guilty to carrying out the failed May 1 bombing in Times Square.
