F.B.I. Lost Track of Shahzad Before Flight Attempt

F.B.I. Lost Track of Shahzad Before Flight Attempt 04 May 2010 Why was Faisal Shahzad permitted to board a flight for Dubai some 24 hours after investigators of the Times Square terrorism case learned he might be connected to the attempted bombing?

First, an F.B.I. surveillance team that had found Mr. Shahzad in Connecticut lost track of him -- it is not clear for how long -- before he drove to John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York, the officials said... In addition, the airline he was flying, Emirates, failed to act on an electronic message at midday on Monday notifying all carriers to check the no-fly list for an important added name, the officials said.
