The Times Square Bomber: What we thought we knew

As the story of the failed Times Square bombing has unfolded, a number of theories and even purported facts have fallen by the wayside:


The bomber was a "lone wolf." (http://thecable.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2010/05/05/what_the_secretary_meant_to_say) Or maybe he was actually trained in Pakistan.
The bomber was a "white male." (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/03/nyregion/03timessquare.html) Or a light-skinned South Asian.
The guy taking off his shirt in the video was involved. (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/05/03/AR2010050304522.html?hpid=topnews)Probably not (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/05/03/AR2010050304522.html?hpid=topnews).
Vietnam veteran Lance Orton (http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/36911051/ns/today-today_people/) first noticed the smoking van. Or maybe it was Senegalese immigrant Aliou Niasse (http://www.theroot.com/buzz/man-who-first-noticed-car-times-square-senegalese-and-muslim).
The bombing was in response (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/7668606/Times-Square-car-bomb-police-investigate-South-Park-link.html) to South Park's depiction of the Prophet Muhammed. Or U.S. foreign policy (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/06/nyregion/06profile.html?pagewanted=3&hp).
Faisal Shahzad was arrested with two other men. But they didn't do anything (http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/05/04/national/main6460022.shtml).
Faisal Shahzad is from Karachi. Or maybe it was (http://blog.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2010/05/05/where_is_faisal_shahzad_from) Peshawar. Or Kashmir.
Faisal Shahzad's father was a Pakistani military official. Or maybe it was his grandfather (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/06/nyregion/06profile.html?pagewanted=3&hp).
The Pakistani Taliban took credit (http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/may/03/hakimullah-mehsud-video) for the attempt. Until they denied it (http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503543_162-20004298-503543.html). But it still kinda seems like (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/06/nyregion/06bomb.html?hp) they did it.

These are just off the top of my head. Readers are invited to add any others that I missed.
Moral of the story: more reporting in the wake of an event like this doesn't necessarily mean more reliable information. Take it all with a grain of salt.
