New York, May 7 (ANI): The Times Square car-bomb suspect, Faisal Shahzad, is boasting of his connections to global terrorists, giving authorities a who's-who list of Islamic mad men he's met with, sources said Thursday night.

Faisal Shahzad, 30, has waived his right to a lawyer and is chatting so much about his ties to anti-American fanatics that federal investigators are rolling their eyes, the New York Daily News quoted the sources, as saying.

"Maybe it's true, but none of it has been verified at all," a U.S. counter-terrorism official briefed on the interrogation told the paper.

Shahzad has said that he met with radical Yemeni-American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, exchanged e-mails with Fort Hood, Texas, and met with Taliban leader Hakimullah Mehsud.

"He's just blabbing away," the official said. (ANI)
