Are the Pakistani Taliban about to go global?

Unlike al Qaeda, the Pakistani Taliban organization (the Tehrik-i-Taliban or TTP) has shown little appetite for taking its brand of jihadism beyond the borders of Pakistan and Afghanistan. Maybe that's changing.

Certainly that's the case if the messages from the TTP's leader, Hakimullah Mehsud, are to be taken at face value. "From now on," he says in an audio message said to have been recorded in April, "the main targets of our fedayeen [fighters] are American cities. This good news will be heard within some days or weeks. Today onwards, the direction of our jihad is American states and cities. Inshallah we are successful in this mission and objective."

The TTP does not lack a motive to lash out. In recent months it has come under increasing pressure as the United States has intensified drone strikes and the Pakistani army has carried out offensives against the group deep inside its safe haven in Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Areas.

Officials are keeping an open mind about any link between the Taliban and the failed car bombing in New York last weekend. Within hours of the incident, an audio message purportedly from Qari Hussain Mehsud (a senior member of the TTP) claimed responsibility for the attack. "This attack is a revenge for the great and valuable martyred leaders of mujahedeen," he said. At first intelligence analysts discounted the message (not least because of specious claims by the group in the past), but as more information emerged about the incident, it has received renewed attention.

Very occasionally in the past the TTP has made threats about launching attacks overseas. Before he was killed by a drone strike last year, the group's then leader, Baitullah Mehsud (no direct relation to Hakimullah or Qari Hussain) told reporters: "Very soon we will take revenge from Amer­ica, not in Afghanistan but in Wash­ing­ton, which will amaze the entire world." And he added: "The max­i­mum they can do is mar­tyr me." They did - but not before Mehsud made an outlandish claim that the TTP were responsible for a shooting rampage in Binghamton, New York, that left 13 people dead. (A Vietnamese immigrant carried out the attack before killing himself.)

The question for counterterrorism officials now is whether the threats by Hakimullah Mehsud to attack targets in the United States is bluster or carries real menace.

The TTP was officially formed in 2007 when a number of hard-line Islamist groups demanding the introduction of Sharia law in Pakistan came together in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas. They had already murdered scores of tribal elders to clear the area of rival authorities.

The TTP's ambitions were at first confined to the tribal territories bordering Afghanistan. But by 2009 it was challenging Pakistan's heartlands and its establishment, with attacks on police academies, government buildings and army convoys as far away as Lahore and Rawalpindi. It has also cooperated closely with the Afghan Taliban and attacked NATO convoys and pre-positioned supplies on their way to Afghanistan. But it was the Taliban's widening campaign against the state that led the Pakistani Army to launch major offensives last year in the Swat Valley and South Waziristan.

There has been just one documented example of the TTP showing more global ambitions. On January 19, 2008, 12 Pakistanis and two Indians were arrested in Barcelona, Spain. Ten were charged - along with another suspect later detained in the Netherlands - with involvement in a conspiracy to carry out suicide bomb attacks on Barcelona's subway system. Several of the conspirators had arrived from Pakistan in the weeks before they were arrested.

Soon after their arrest, U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates said: "The Barcelona cell appears to have ties to a terrorist training network run by Baitullah Mehsud." Several months later a TTP spokesman, Maulvi Omar, acknowledged in a video: "The one in Barcelona was conducted by 12 of our men.

They were under pledge to Baitullah Mehsud and TTP has already claimed responsibility because of Spain's military presence in Afghanistan."

The 11 ultimately charged were convicted and sentenced to jail terms of eight to 10 years in December last year. Much of the prosecution's case was based on an informant inside the cell who said he had been trained in the use of explosives in Waziristan, the TTP's stronghold before the Pakistani army offensive.

To date, the Barcelona case remains the only credible example of the TTP's capability to take its fight overseas. But other Pakistani groups have shown an ability and desire to broaden their targets. Lashkar-e-Taiba recruited American David Headley to reconnoiter and plan an attack on the offices of the Danish newspaper that published cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed in 2005. He was arrested on his return to the United States last year - before any attack was carried out - and pleaded guilty to charges connected to the conspiracy.

Headley also confessed to involvement in reconnaissance for the Mumbai attacks by Lashkar in November 2008.

For its part, the TTP has developed both its alliances and capabilities closer to home, most notably joining forces with al Qaeda for the attack on a U.S. base in eastern Afghanistan that killed seven CIA employees and contractors last December. And last month it launched a complex but unsuccessful attack on the U.S. Consulate in Peshawar.

Intelligence analysts believe that as the attempted car bombing in Times Square was so poorly executed, it would be surprising if the TTP were closely involved.

    wow.. lot of Pakistan bashing here by the Indians. Well as I see things, I think the first one to suffer a loss if US leaves Afghanistan is India, because they really want to en-circle Pakistan. If we compare both countries economically, certainly India is doing very well, so it means in case of a conflict the bigger looser will be India because in the end they will have to loose what they have built. Its been 9 years now and US still cant get the better of Taliban with this US-Taliban equation. The India-Pakistan equations shows that India should not interfere and keep on going on the path it is right now and not try to be Germany (1939), by trying to take over or influence its neighbors

    @Jay

    Conclusive evidence exists of excessive Indian interference within the regions of Balochistan and Waziristan. On the subject of disputed Kashmiri territory, the BBC, which most would agree favors neither Hindu nor Muslim, even Indian-administered Kashmir has a vast Muslim majority. In the general territory, more than three quarters of the population is Muslim. Concerning immigrant Pakistanis identifying themselves as Indian, I live in central New Jersey, within walking distance of Edison, widely known to have the highest density of Pakistanis anywhere in the US. From firsthand experience, I can assure you that absolutely NO Pakistani has ever identified themselves as an Indian. They may call their grandparents Indians, many of who lived in various parts of India before being driven out by the larger Hindu population during the separation of the British Raj into Pakistan and India.

    Having refuted your wholly illogical and patently ridiculous argument, I wholeheartedly await your inevitable reply, which will most likely be along the lines of "You are a Pakistani worm!" without addressing the actual arguments I have made.

    The US Government is also to take some blame on the wounds inflicted on it by the Jehadi elements from Pakistan. This Govt. knows very well that the military hardware & cash it gives to Pakistan is used by the pro Islamic militant elements within the ISI establishment to kill and injure the American boys in the US Army serving in Afghanistan by directly training extremists. So the American tax payer is funding the killing of their own sons via Pakistan. If America wants to fight Islamic terrorism the 1st thing it should do is stop aiding Pakistan. Aid Isreal and India who are the natural allies of USA against militant cancerous Islam.

    Point taken, PatriotToo. Regardless how Pakistan and Pakistanis attained the outlook you describe, however, the issue is what the appropriate American response should be. Today, Pakistan has little credibility as an ally. The tails-between-their-legs pull-out of Waziristan semaphores the internal instability and weakness that makes them unreliable as a partner in the "war against terror." The fact that much of the cash and resources given to them to undertake the WAT was diverted to Indian-border defenses underscores the misalignment of objectives between our two governments, to put it mildly. (To put it bluntly, Pakistan intentionally redirected those resources because (1) they are far more concerned about India, and (2) they are far too skittish about Waziristan.)

    So, what do we make of this failure to act as planned or expected? India is not the aggressor Pakistan should be concerned about. All they have done (overtly) in the past 50 years is defend their territory, support the Bangladeshis in their fight for freedom, and watch as Pakistan bartered away a part of India's territory (Aksai Chin) to China. On the other hand, Osama Bin Laden and Co. are likely still hanging out in Waziristan. Arms markets flourish in the region, as several Time, Newsweek and similar publications have consistently confirmed (with picture of smiling men with barrels full of bullets and grenades, no less). There is no rule of law in the region, and only a fool would think that the local war barons are uniformly benevolent dictators who are toiling furiously for the welfare of all their subjects. Yet, Pakistan turns a blind eye to all of that, and chooses to - no, has little choice but to - withdraw from the region and effectively cede it to the militia. This is not a nation or government worthy of supporting, at this time.

    Instead, maybe it is time to forge a tangible relationship of cooperation with India. Yes, the Indians will not capitulate to each and every demand we place before them, but there is far less doubt that they will honor the commitments they make. That's the sort of ally, I posit, that we need today.

    Any further show of hate will only beget more hate. Both sides have seen this. As an American who has seen Pakistan over different times since the Soviet war, and have seen the dramatic change of tides. So lets start by asking why and what before spewing ignorance and fix this problem once and for all. T

    Pakistan was a MAJOR ally to the US during the soviet war. American and Europeans roamed the streets free in any city at any time even in the tribal belt way after the war was over. What changed? The gulf war. The general pouplation in Pakistan could not understand why US would suddenly turn on a older ally (US was the main supplier and friend of Iraq during the Iran/Iraq war). Sure Kuwait was a ally to the US but Iraq could never have stayed there for long. Regardless, the debate is Pakistan here. So the Pakistani's started to doubt US and the religious zealots (a plenty there) saw it as a political opportunity and spread that doubt that US/ west was out to get all Muslims.

    The more the Iraqi people and children died under even the post was embargo, which Pakistani people saw openly in the news but was not reported widely in the US (wonder why), their fear and beliefs grew stronger. Then happened the Iraqi invasion. That was the sledge hammer that broke the cammels back. Obviously, there was no real link to WMD or what ever reason was used for the war. The general Pakistanis lost faith in the US.

    Finally, the Afghan war spilled most of the Talibans into Pakistan's permeable border (no different than the Mexican border to US – tough to bar right?) and its these people that started milking the lost faith of some of the easily targetable kids in Pakistan. They are far more lethal to Pakistan than to us here. They have terrorized that nation. We talk about one amateur car bomb here (thank our lucky stars that it was a dud) but there is at least one that goes off every day in Pakistan and they are not amateur duds. Hundreds of people blown up weekly. Plus the deteriorating economy, crappy government doesn't lend much to the hope of the people either.

    My point? We cant just go and put a blanket blame on an entire nation that has taken 100 folds many fatalities in this war on terror and is an ally. We need to hate less and see how we can create the same mutual respect that we had before the Gulf war. Of course its possible, but we need to believe in ourselves as a nation that is willing to listen first before pulling the trigger. I am in. I hope some of you are also thinking.

    People like @Atif Bash and @Mohammad A Dar are emblematic of the ignorance that besieges a visceral minority (I hope) in Pakistan. These morons - and yes, I use that term intentionally, and mean it literally - start by trotting out well-worn cliche and generalizations that impress no-one, then resort to lame historical arguments before finally lapsing into sputtering, impotent rage. You almost feel sorry for them, right? Dudes, I get that your vision of Islam would have been (and was) progressive back in the time of the Hijra, but that was 1400 years ago. YOUR VISION HAS NOT PROGRESSED SINCE. And your ignorance of that precise stagnation is at the root of your discontent. Sure, being insular and tribalistic may have been all the rage back in the desert-roaming nomadic days of yore, but in today's society, community and compromise are far more effective in enlarging the pie for all to share. So, maybe, if you could put your tulwars down for a second and consider adapting, we could all be a lot happier. But wait, that would require giving women the same significance as men, and no longer using literal translations of various hadiths to justify child-brides, and (shudder) even disagreeing with a fellow Muslim state when that state acts contrary to (typical) human conscience. And so on. Compromises that this visceral minority (again, I hope it is a minority) cannot countenance. So instead, they spew invective and seed hate in their future generations. No merciful God will forgive them, but that is a lesson that these fools will learn only after they pass on.

    Let's face it, what have the muslims of the world in the last few centuries outside India have contributed to humanity, a very big zero. They are yet to recover from the royal kicking they received during the crusade days. Well we have to thank the Christians on this score. I don't think majority of the Pakis have a real option in life. It is either begging or try to be a bully with a gun. The west must press on in this region and clean up the mess. I think this is the last one we have to worry about.

    Mohammad A Dar has to relearn a few facts of life. First of all, the total population of the Middle east states, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Kuwait, Iraq, Bahrain, Egypt are not equal to the population of a few indian states. Do u know the reason for this Mohammad??? The Middle east boast of being the centre of islam, Mecca. The reason being that people of this region do most things ass ways. So in that case how will the population grow??? The areas where the population have grown, are Indonesia, India and pakistan. Do you know the reason for this? The local population have been tolerant to the incoming muslims. But not any more. You will notice Mohammad that people of these areas are getting fed up of the way muslims behave. As far as people getting converted to islam, you must also remember that alot of muslims are getting converted to christianity and other religions. Most of the educated Muslims are athiests. So you are living in a vacuum. Did u notice a single muslim in the forbes 10 richest people of the world? What is the reason, muslims are poor and uneducated. And so to get attention, they go about doing stupid things like terrorism, honour killings, killings of other muslims.

    As for America and the civilized world, they will face alot of problems coming up against a more elite and dare devil force. India, china are strong enough to contain these terrorists. If the muslims are not careful, more restrictions will be imposed by governments on their community.

    @Mohammad A Dar, I understand it’s hard to accept Muslim killing Muslim, what?? Yes Islam does say kill your own innocent, why? Islam religion does not belong to modern world and modern people. Mohammad change your religion Islam is doomed, stop defending start protesting. Tell me a single incident where Hindus or Christians has killed kids in the name of religion, Jesus Christ Islam is really a sick religion, sick sick sick! Clean it fast or peace loving people will loose their patience, so far they have tolerated it, not so much, day will come when Islam will be banned and it will be illegal to practice Islam because it will be a religion of terrorists, Europe has started boning Islamic burqa.

    There is only one condition under which the Taliban or any terrorists organization can go global, and that is from money/financing sent to them from the middle east. Dry up thier funds and you will find all the terrorists going to work every morning, trying to earn their lively hood in a decent way. As long as the pakistani establishment with the help of the middle eastern arabs financing them, like cowards, in the name of Allah, they can go global, and will come back to kill and haunt their own muslim brothers. Already the middleeast, UAE, Saudi Arabia can boast of some of the tallest buildings in the world, and these terrorists will turn on them, sooner than later. As for America and the civilized world, they will face alot of problems coming up against a more elite and dare devil force. India, china are strong enough to contain these terrorists.

    Q) Are the Pakistani Taliban about to go global?

    Ans: Not really, they wish they could. The only thing they can do is hit Pakistan army, since army is in that area.. They are having hard times even hitting Pakistan in their cities.

    Tehrik-i-Taliban or TTP is not a threat to America because they are different then Afghan Taliban.

    Afghan Taliban goal to fight US and collision forces and kick them out of Afghanistan.

    TTP main goal is that since Pakistan is helping USA (e.g 80% of supplies goes through Pakistan to Afghanistan + drone attacks), it is a target and both Pakistan army & civilians are target for them.

    No matter we like it OR not, If we want to end this conflict in Afghanistan, we have to get help from Pakistan, so they can force Afghan Taliban to get on with negotiations with USA.

    We have already tried alone for 9 years alone and its not working..

    We will have to accept the fact that Pakistan Army / ISI will never let India get into any role in Afghanistan..because they do not want to get encircled by india from both sides..

    As soon as we realize above, we can we out of this mess in Afghanistan..

    @atif bash, my heart bleeds for you honestly. Well the Indian army is just paying back in your own currency in Baloch for what you are doing in Kashmir and other parts of India. There are pretty mcuh the same number of muslims iin India as in Pak. How many of the Indian muslims identify with alqaeeda or pak taliban? zero or close to miniscule. Something is seriously wrong with you people. You are shooting your self in the foot trying to match India in everything she does. You are willing to put up with severe power shortage, less dams, support every possible militant group and diverting all your resources to match India's military. It is really sad. It is more sadder just to see Pak's name come up with every terrorist act anywhere in the world. Sometimes I feel you have reached the point of no return.

    hi 2 everyone it really makes me sick when ne thing bad about pakistan comes in media da indians start talking bad about us(pakistan).yes we know there problems in our areas but y do u indians n others keep forgetting that we won several battles against militants and terrorist like in swat n south waziristan n other areas of fata.n one more thing many american as well as other western secret agencies n senators have acknowledge this fact that india is using afghanistan n has launched a proxy war in pakistan. specially in balochistan n some tribal areas everyone knows this but our corrupt government is afraid even of taking india`s name.n one question that i want 2 ask from all of u tell me y da media specially the western media never talks about what happened 2 the samjhota express incident when due 2 fire so many innocent pakistanis were killed n to add salt 2 da wounds india quickly blamed pakistanis 4 this attack but later on it was proved that it was a serving indian col name as col prohit. who did this along with his hindu extremist buddies.n some months ago an indian nuclear scientist was lost but after few days his body was found.wat if some col or general of india along with his buddies does a dirty bomb attack in india or ne where in tha world then im 100% sure that da whole world will blame pakistan.just plz remember every human life is important and valuable so if u cry n make a fuss about indians or other get killed n terror attacks and start blaming pakistan rather then those stupid militants plz also dont forget the pakistani people who got killed in india by an indian col.n da ppl who die evryday in balochistan because of indian agents.thnx n by the way i love n respect all religions n nation.thnx just against their governments policies,

What goes around comes around.
    As living in the democratic country you and I have chosen to be the target of this violence, because the state and the people are same. And we also need to ask ourselves why is this only happens to us like USA, Russia, & Israel because at one point in time we have mistreated these people. This war will go on forever unless someone realizes and apologize to these people saying we are sorry for what we had done to you. We will leave you alone if you leave us alone and stop being alley of Israel, because that’s the first reason we has gotten us in this mess.

    Attacking America will be the worst thing that the terrorists could do for themselves. Attacking the CIA base in Afghanistan certainly sent America a "message"... and America rightly responded by stepping up the drone campaign. We've heard stories of Taliban/Al Quieda inside Pakistan dying from the drones. Militants in the area are literally "scared" to go out in large groups, and would move into areas in 2's to prevent getting themselves bombed. Attacking America directly is not going to have the effect of everybody saying "Let's get out of Afghanistan." Remember after 9/11? If anything, it will make a new focus on Afghanistan (and Pakistan), and I would expect a much wider bombing campaign in Pakistan if America were directly attacked.

    It is time for the Indian Military to drop it's proxy role and begin a much more active role in this region of influence. Pakistan is quickly falling apart and has demonstrated that it has a number of Nuclear Weapons making it a very dangerous neighbor to India's interests in that region. America is largely limited in its attacks within Pakistan's border regions while India has enormous influence across that entire region and needs to begin asserting itself directly.
