Police Lost Track Of NY Bomb Suspect, No-Fly List Came Through

The suspect in Saturday's attempted Times Square car bombing reportedly might have eluded police because media trucks appeared in his Bridgeport, Connecticut neighborhood on Monday afternoon. Law enforcement officials trailing Faisal Shadzad lost him for several hours and no one knew where he was until customs officials scrutinizing passenger lists late Monday night found that Shahzad had just boarded a midnight flight from New York to Dubai.
