Faisal Shahzad, alleged Times Square bomber, left his home keys in the car bomb

Faisal Shahzad left the keys to his Connecticut home and to his Isuzu car in the Pathfinder SUV he allegedly drove into Times Square in the hopes of bombing the New York City landmark.

That's according to the just-released complaint against Shahzad:

"When law enforcement officers entered the Pathfinder, a number of keys were recovered, including a key to an Isuzu automobile. This investigation has revealed . . . that he drove an Isuzu; and that one of the keys in the Pathfinder opens the door to Shazad's Connecticut residence."

I'm not planning to comment on criminal investigations into alleged terrorism on Market Cop. But that line stuck out at me at a time when many financial fraud investigations often are extremely difficult to piece together.

That's not to say that federal and city authorities didn't work speedily on the Times Square case. The New York police commissioner compared investigators' efforts to those of Jack Bauer on '24'
