NYC terror suspect Sayfullo Saipov brags about attack from hospital bed

NYC terror suspect Sayfullo Saipov brags about attack from hospital bed, by Stefan Becket.

The suspect in Tuesday’s terrorist attack in lower Manhattan bragged to police about the deadly attack from his hospital bed, saying he would have continued mowing down bikers and pedestrians had he not crashed.

Sayfullo Habibullaevic Saipov, 29, told police he is pleased with his actions and is unapologetic for the attack, sources tell CBS News. One source said Saipov made “no bones” about the attack, which killed eight people and injured at least 12.

Robert Spencer:

Of course he is pleased. He has fulfilled the commands of Allah and gained for himself a place in Paradise. From his point of view, he has every reason to be happy today. …

Saipov seems to have grasped those “kill them wherever you find them” bits (2:191, 4:89, 9:5) well enough.
