Taliban link to Times Square suspect?

(CNN) – There are reports today saying U.S. investigators think there may indeed be a link between the suspected Times Square bomber and the Pakistani Taliban, not al Qaeda and not the Taliban we're fighting in Afghanistan. And it could be a game-changer if they were able to hit the homeland.

Rep. Peter Hoekstra, ranking member on the House Committee on Intelligence, joined us on Thursday's American Morning to talk about the investigation into the failed Times Square bombing.

Give them new credit scores, they would then refinance their homes, and upgrade vehicles, which would cause great supply an demand, The banks are still asking for check stubs and bank statements, this been going on for 1 year.........joke the nouse next door sold for 120 thousand, i owe 525 thousand for same size house.

    The USA should be the world's leader in renewable energy technology and tell the Middle East terrorists to go drown in their oil. Americans were blind but now they see that after the Republicans ruin the environment for corporate profits and refuse to admit that Green Energy is the only way for the future of our country.

    My point is that we, (as a country) need to be doing everything humanly possible to get off oil and get on renewable energy. FYI: Renewable energy is energy which comes from natural resources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, and geothermal heat, which are renewable (naturally replenished).

    A Republican is involved with this investigation?
    Probably trying to discredit the Democrats and Obama in particular.
    Why do we not get to the root of this problem and call all of our troops home????Next, an energy policy, including carefully drilling for oil.
    This must be regulated and controlled..
    Frankly, I, for one, do not give two hoots for the Arabs, the Muslims, the Islamics; let el-Queada(whatever), the Talaban take over, let Saddam Hussein rule Iraq, they deserve him.
