The Denver Post reports Afghan-born Najibullah Zazi and his father, Mohammed Zazi, were arrested tonight and charged with making false statements to federal authorities. Zazi and his father had been questioned by authorities in recent days.

The arrests came amid conflicting media reports about Zazi’s links to al Qaeda, his participation in insurgency training in Pakistan, and his involvement in suspected New York terrorist plots.

UPDATE: The AP reports a 3rd man has been arrested in New York.

  3. He spent three days talking to the FBI with his attorney. I’m trying to figure out who the moron is, the defendant or his attorney. I know one or both of them is.
