The younger Zazi lied about documents on explosives that authorities said they found on his laptop that was confiscated in New York....
One suspect in the probe – that now reaches from New York to Colorado and overseas – told investigators that Zazi was expected to decide when the cell would launch their attack, a law enforcement source said.
The paper reported earlier that investigators were looking into the backgrounds of seven Afghan men who on Sept. 9 tried to rent a 26-foot truck at a U-Haul rental outlet in New York City, but failed because none of them could produce a valid credit card.
Zazi told the Denver Post he is innocent, in an interview early Saturday. The Post quoted a spokeswoman for Zazi's lawyer saying that he broke off talks with FBI counter-terror officials in part because of inaccurate media reports on the questioning.
In a phone interview with The Post on Saturday morning, Zazi said he has not admitted any link to the terrorist group, to participation in insurgency training in Pakistan or to involvement in a terrorist plot.
"It's not true," Zazi said. "I have nothing to hide. It's all media publications reporting whatever they want. They have been reporting all this nonsense."
Zazi said in the interview that the reports that he had admitted to contacts with Al Qaeda were illogical.
"If it was true, they wouldn't allow me to leave," Zazi said. "I don't think the FBI or the police would allow anyone who admits being a terrorist to go free for one minute."
