More on the link between the Pakistani Taliban and the man charged in the failed Times Square bombing
I got a barn if you don't mind me watching.
You and Daniel should get a room.
@ Lennybaby, Shazad was a naturalized US citizen. Lived & worked here for years. His father is an Afghan Air Force officer, I believe the kid even had some nieve American girl as his wife & had kids with her. Anyway he got radicalized at a local mosque & over the internet & went over on his own to get training. I don't think he was affiliated with the taliban but I bet they where happy to train him & take credit for it.
And by the way, the Taliban are the targets of the UAVs & very few civilians get killed by the UAV missions. The Taliban kill more innocent people than we every have so why don't you try putting them down instead of your own countymen. Better yet why don't you hop on a plane & come on over & help the rest of us & get the real story first hand.
May GOD Bless & keep us all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I just don't see how the Taliban,with their lack of both sophistication and resources,can orchestrate such an attack from half way around the world.It seems that the right-wing thugs are trying to scare us,but on the other hand,with our atrocious use of those godless drones against the indigenous people over there,we're inadvertently stirring up more and more anti-Western feelings.
