Gen. David Petraeus told The Associated Press on Friday that alleged bomber Faisal Shahzad was inspired by militants in Pakistan, but did not have direct contact with them.
Authorities say Shahzad told investigators he went to a terror training camp in Pakistan, but they have yet to confirm that.
Shahzad is a U.S. citizen, accused of an attempted terror attack nearly a week ago in New York's Times Square. He was caught Monday night trying to leave the country.
