The so-called Pakistani Taliban has claimed responsibility for a failed car bombing in New York’s Times Square.
A statement posted on the internet on Sunday said the attempted attack the previous day was to avenge the killing of two "Muslim martyrs", leaders of al-Qaeda linked groups in Iraq.
"The Pakistani Taliban announced its responsibility for the New York attack in revenge for the two leaders al-Baghdadi and al-Mahajer and Muslim martyrs," the statement read.
It referred to Abu Ayub al-Masri, also known as al-Mahajer, the head of al-Qaeda in Iraq, and Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, the purported head of the Islamic State of Iraq (ISI), an al-Qaeda affiliate.
The two were reportedly killed in a joint raid by US and Iraqi soldiers on April 18.
It was not immediately possible to verify the authenticity of the claim by a group which is largely responsible for domestic attacks targeting Pakistani military or government officials…

Well, this is an entirely unexpected turn of events. I thought for sure that it was going to be the AARP that was behind this, not Muslims.

PS I do know that all folks who attend the mosque and wear the desert garb aren't terrorists. It's just the perception. People here are getting jumpy with these attempted attacks.

On the Today Show this morning, there was some speculation that this happened near the Viacom building? I don't know NYC that well, other than how the streets line up. I've only been there once. But Viacom owns Comedy Central, and produces South Park....
They were interviewing the guy who called the police-one of the vendors from Times Square. He seemed totally overwhelmed by the spotlight, but it does make me feel more secure knowing that even our hot-dog and jewelry vendors in the street are paying close attention to what's going on around them.

I hate to give credit to those filthy bastards, but if the Taliban were behind this the bomb would've been a little bit more than fertilizer attached to some fireworks with a plastic firing trigger. My guess it was just a cook like the guy who hit the IRS building earlier, it barely even qualifies as terrorism. For once I agree with Napolitano.
