UPDATE 1-Obama vows U.S. will not be intimidated

(Adds quotes)

WASHINGTON, May 4 (BestGrowthStock) – U.S. President Barack Obama
said an investigation into an attempted car bombing at Times
Square will seek to determine if a suspect in the case had
links to foreign extremist groups.

Speaking about the Saturday night incident after a suspect
was arrested on Monday, Obama said “justice will be done” in
the case and vowed the United States will not be intimidated.
“We will not cower in fear,” he said.

Faisal Shahzad, 30, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in
Pakistan, was arrested late on Monday at John F. Kennedy
International Airport in New York as he tried to take a flight
to Dubai.

Obama said the FBI and related investigative agencies have
the experience to interrogate Shahzad. Obama had come under
fire from Republicans for letting the alleged bomber of a
Detroit-bound plane on Christmas Day be questioned by the FBI
instead of intelligence experts.

He said the probe will seek to determine “what if any
connection this individual has to terrorist groups and it
includes collecting critical inteligence as we work to disrupt
any future attacks.”

“This incident is another sobering reminder of the times in
which we live,” Obama said.
