Holder also said the U.S. government was satisfied with the level of cooperation from Pakistan in the investigation, and there's nothing to suggest Pakistani authorities knows of Shahzad's attempt.

Shahzad has confessed to buying an SUV, rigging it with a homemade bomb and driving it Saturday into Times Square, where he tried to detonate it. He admitted to receiving bomb-making training in Pakistan's restive Waziristan.

Shahzad had recently returned from a five-month trip to Pakistan. Pakistan's Dawn television said he had family links in the port city of Karachi.

Pakistan Interior Minister Rehman Malik ordered probe into Shahzad's visit to South Waziristan tribal region and meetings with Pakistan based militants.
