At a court hearing Tuesday, Faisal Shahzad, a U.S. citizen originally from Pakistan, told a federal judge in Manhattan that if given 1,000 lives “I will sacrifice them all in the name of Allah” before he was sentenced to life in prison.

—The man who tried to detonate a crudely made car bomb in Times Square in May will spend the rest of his life behind bars. Failed Times Square bomber Faisal Shahzad said the U.S. should brace itself for war as he was sentenced Tuesday to life behind bars.

“The defendant has repeatedly expressed his total lack of remorse, his desire if given the opportunity to repeat the crime,” U.S. District Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum said.

Mr. Shahzad “has now announced and, by his conduct, has evidenced his desire is not to defend the United States or Americans, but to kill them.”
