Despite the left wing dhimmi media's losing all credibility after having first broadcast that the Times Square jihadi had to be a tea partier, and then a casualty of Bush's failed economic policies (4.5% unemployment), the dhimmi media then, when jihad was clearly the motive, said that he was a lone bomber angry at US policies in Iraq and Afghanistan. They have no shame in their contempt for the truth and for their low estimation of the intelligence of the American people.
Now comes this, the White House says Pakistan Taliban is behind the Times Square bomb.
So all of Obama's bowing and scraping has brought us ..........here. They're here.
Obama says there will be "severe consequences." Like what? More aid and a strongly worded billet doux?
Remember, Obama"s policy was to partner (nee surrender) to the Taliban, consequently sanctioning their blood lust and barbarity. Despite this, the Taliban told Obama, "there are no moderates or extremists among us."
And please spare the geographical tongue lashing between Afghanistan Taliban and Pakistan Taliban -- it's merely logistics. Same goes for Al Qaeda, Al Quds, Hezb'Allah, Hamas, Al Mujaroon, Al-Muhajiroun, MILF, Islamic jihad, MAS, ICNA, CAIR, Fatah, Jaish-e-Mohammed, Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen, Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, Islamic Jihad, Armed Islamic Group, Sayyaf Group, Hezb-e-Islami Gulbuddin, Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh, Harkat-ul-Mujahideen, Caucasus Caliphate Jihad, Chen Chen rebels, Uighurs, Turkish Hezbollah, Abu Musab, Al-Faruq Brigades,Al-Harakah al-Islamiyyah fi al-arak); Jamaat Ansar al-Sunna; the Mujahideen of the Victorious Sect (Mujahideen al ta’ifa al-Mansoura); the Mujahideen Battalions of the Salafi Group of Iraq (Kata’ib al mujahideen fi al-jama’ah al-salafiyah fi al-‘arak); the Jihad Brigades/Cell; "White Flags, Muslim Youth and Army of Mohammed", Ansar al-Islam, Fatah al-Islam, Fatah al-Intifada, et al .... -- it's all Islam. Period.
WASHINGTON – Citing new evidence, senior White House officials said Sunday that the Pakistani was behind the failed Times Square bombing.
The finding is a reversal for the Obama administration, which had downplayed potential links to overseas terrorist groups in the immediate aftermath of the attack. It also raises new questions about the U.S. relationship with Pakistan, which is widely known to have al-Qaida and other terrorist groups operating within its borders.
Attorney General Eric Holder said that new evidence shows that the Pakistani Taliban was "intimately involved" in the bombing plot. John Brennan, the president's homeland security and counterterrorism adviser, made similar remarks, linking the bomber to the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, or TTP.
The militant group is believed to be hiding senior al-Qaida leaders, including .
"We know that they helped facilitate it," said Holder. "We know that they probably helped finance it. And that he was working at their direction."
A U.S. citizen of Pakistani descent, Faisal Shahzad is accused of spending five months in Pakistan before returning to the United States in February and preparing his attack.
Shahzad has told investigators that he trained in the lawless tribal areas of Waziristan, where both al-Qaida and the Pakistani Taliban operate. He was arrested aboard an Emirates Airlines jet in New York just minutes before it was scheduled to take off for Dubai.
After the attack, U.S. officials said they were exploring potential links to terrorist groups overseas but cited the bomb's lack of sophistication as an indication that Shahzad was acting alone.
Last week, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, told NBC News that "at this point I have no information that it's anything other than a one-off." Likewise, Gen. David Petraeus told The Associated Press that Shahzad apparently operated as a "lone wolf."
Brennan said on Sunday that the attempted bombing shows that the capability of overseas terrorist organizations is being degraded.
"They now are relegated to trying to do these unsophisticated attacks, showing that they have inept capabilities in training," he said.
The link between an attack on U.S. soil and terrorist groups operating inside Pakistan opens up a new chapter in relations between the two countries. Until recently, administration officials have said they thought Islamabad was doing all it could.
said last week that there would be "severe consequences" if the attack were traced back to Pakistan and that the South Asian country could do more.
