Skip to comments.Boston Marathon explosions: Pakistan Taliban says it was not behind bombs
Posted on 04/16/2013 9:11:27 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
"The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) wasn't involved in carrying out the Boston attacks," Ehsanullah Ehsan, a spokesman for the group told The Daily Telegraph. " We will issue a fuller statement only when those who have done this make any claim."
He also told the AFP news agency that the TTP supported attacks on the US.
The group did claim that it was behind the botched 2010 attack on Times Square and has close ties with al-Qaeda.
Pakistans lawless tribal areas remain a haven for militant groups, including the Afghan Taliban and the Haqqani network, which launch attacks on international forces in Afghanistan.
The training camps have also been used to plot attacks on the West and to equip British-born Jihadis with basic bomb making and field craft.
The video showed Shahzad embracing Hakimullah Mehsud, the movements leader.
Last year the TTP said it was behind the attempt to murder Malala Yousafzai, a 15-year-old girl and education campaigner.
No-one has yet claimed responsibility for the attack in Boston and US leaders have tried to avoid pointing the finger at Jihadi groups before more facts are known. As well as home-grown American extremists, suspicion is also likely to fall on al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.

AQ said they weren’t behind 9/11 on 9/11, too.
Honest. Now really. This is an authentic Rolex.
You mean they’ll eventually own up?
Oh, come now. Are these the sort of people who would lie?
No, I mean you can’t trust a word haji scumbags say.
Barack Obama has failed AGAIN. (Benghazi counts.)
Can you say, "Obama is a FAILURE"?
Now let's keep repeating that!
It wouldn’t surprise me if the bomber was one of those OWS wackos......which of course would then make him a LEFT WING EXTREMIST but we’d certainly never hear that term.....
Obama thinks Boston bombings could be related to tax day
Shades of Clinton speculating that the Oklahoma bombings were the result of talk show hosts like Rush Limbaugh.
The first condolences for Boston came from Iran.
The first condolences for 9-11 came from Afghanistan.
whoever stomps on the American flag or teaches men so might be suspect...
I think he is trying to tell us that those “condolences” are meant to divert the wrath of the USA away from them.
Ah. Maybe they’d be better suited by not attacking us.
Of course the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan claims not to have done this. Joey Biden assures us that the Taliban is not our enemy. What are the chances he could be wrong?
Which people are you talking about - the taliban who say they didn't do it or the US gov who are telling this to the sheeple?
Hmm...tough call. That’s sort of shades of black, isn’t it?
Using muzzie logic, allah must disagree, having sent an earthquake their way.
If we were still living with them in the 7th century, we would be in the streets celebrating.
But no, that’s what savages do—like exploding consecutive bombs among civilians. The bastards ...
Quick Barry—send them more money! China will loan it to us, as usual, and you’ve got a lot of tax dollars coming in ...
RE: as usual, and youve got a lot of tax dollars coming in ...
Yep, about $2.6 Trillion coming in. But he wants to spend $3.8 Trillion, and whines that he doesn’t have enough money.
I don’t consider the creation of the DHS “[keeping] our homeland safe”.
