WASHINGTON — The US general who oversees the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan on Friday said the Times Square bombing suspect was a "lone wolf" terrorist who did not work with others.
Gen. David Petraeus told The Associated Press that alleged bomber Faisal Shahzad was inspired by terrorists in Pakistan, but did not have direct contact with them.
Authorities said Shahzad told investigators he went to a terror training camp in Pakistan, but they have yet to confirm that.
Shahzad is a US citizen, accused of an attempted terror attack nearly a week ago in New York's Times Square. He was caught Monday night trying to leave the country.
