The investigation into the Times Square car bomb has started to reveal information that suggests the failed attack was the work of an international plot, a senior administration official told Fox News.
The official could not definitively say whether a foreign conspiracy was behind the incident, but that the body of evidence was moving in that direction.
The Washington Post first reported that officials were eyeing an international connection. One official told the Post that “some tell-tale signs” have led investigators to look at a “foreign nexus.”
Sources told Fox News that investigators are focusing on the similarities between the failed attack in New York City and both the 2007 attack on Glasgow’s airport in Scotland and the attempted bombing of a London nightclub the same year. Propane gas and gasoline were used in all three incidents.
