Taliban Chief Claims Responsibility for N.Y. Shooting Massacre


Earlier this month, Team "0" said it wanted to cozy up to the "moderate Taliban". The Taliban response called the proposal illogical and an oxymoron!

Last weekend, Obama vowed to "disrupt, dismantle and defeat" Taliban and Al-Qaida.

Last week, an alliance of the Taliban and Afghan military promised "amazing" attacks on Washington, D.C. and the Taliban once again called Obama's diplomacy efforts a "lunatic idea".

Fox News reports:

A Pakistani Taliban militant leader has claimed responsibility for the attack on a U.S. immigration center in New York state in which 13 people were killed, Reuters reported.

"I accept responsibility. They were my men. I gave them orders in reaction to U.S. drone attacks," Baituallah Mehsud told Reuters by telephone from an undisclosed location on Saturday.

U.S. officials were not immediately available for comment about Mehsud's claim, Reuters reported, and one Pakistani security analyst dismissed the claim as a publicity stunt.

Representative Maurice Hinchey, whose district includes Binghamton, told the New York Times that indications are the gunman was an immigrant from Vietnam.

Mehsud's claim comes as a suspected U.S. drone fired two missiles at an alleged militant hide-out Saturday in northwestern Pakistan, killing 13 people.
