    Pakistani Taliban Claims Responsibility
    Times Square Bomb Plot Revenge, Group Says
    Fox 5 reports that the Pakistani Taliban has claimed responsibility for the bomb plot.

    According to Fox News, in a 1 minute video allegedly released by the Pakistani Taliban, the group says the attack is revenge for the death of its leader Baitullah Mehsud and the recent killings of the top leaders of al-Qaida in Iraq.

    Images of the slain militants are shown as an unidentified voice recites the message. English subtitles are at the bottom of the screen.

    According to the AP, an unidentified speaker on the tape also says the attack comes in response to American "interference and terrorism in Muslim Countries, especially in Pakistan."

    Harry

    ... you have any room for any of us up there in Maine?

    We can build the PatsFans PoFo Bunker up there on your property

    ... should be far enough away from the NY radiation fallout.

    I have a green thumb ... I can be director or gardening and food production.

    BTW ... will you share the neighbor. :confused2:

    Plenty of room, I've got 9000 lbs of Moose Meat in my garage and 72 lbs of Bob Cat Bowels for cook outs.

    Ah yah. Let's see what the guy who did it says when they bring him in.

    Something tells me the Taliban has moved past the "4th of July Jumbo Assortment" phase of bombmaking.

    My first thought was that it was someone trying to attack the amnesty rallys that happened this weekend.

    A lot of weird things lately: oil rigs exploding; water mains breaking...

    Oh yeah, I can just see putting all the people from the political forum in an enclosed bunker together for an extended period of time (like Hitchc0ck's Lifeboat or one of those horror flicks).......

    If this is a retaliation for a South Park Cartoon, I might not only need to leave this country, but the planet too.

    If this is an American, who somehow thinks we are becoming 'socialists', we need to rethink what we are projecting over our airwaves.

    If this was Al Qaeda, lets pull all our troops out of afganistan, because the tactics have gone from slamming 747s into the twin towers, to underwear bombs, and fireqworks. Its safe to say the A-sqad isnt running the show anymore.

    I hope that this was a guy who got lost trying to bring fireworks up to the tri state area from south of the border, and along the way he found a great deal on propane tanks in Jersey, and decided he wanted to do some planting and yardwork, so he pruchased fertilizer at a home depot in Hoboken. He then took the wrong exit, and got fed up in times square...

    But thats a stretch..

    Obama drone joke: Was it offensive?
    Everyone agrees that President Obama was funnier than Jay Leno at the White House Correspondents Association dinner on Saturday night. But this joke is inspiring some backlash:

    "Jonas Brothers are here, they're out there somewhere. Sasha and Malia are huge fans, but boys, don't get any ideas. Two words for you: predator drones. You will never see it coming. You think I'm joking?"
    "You have to wonder why in the world the president's speech writers would think it was a good idea to throw a joke about predator drones into the president's speech during the White House Correspondent's Dinner, given that an estimated one-third of drone casualties, or between 289 and 378, have been civilians," wrote Adam Serwer at the American Prospect.

    "Let's be honest, fellow progressives, we'd be all over Bush if he made the same 'predator drone' joke Obama told last night," Philadelphia Daily News' Will Bunch tweeted.

    Drone attacks in Pakistan have killed hundreds of suspected insurgents since early 2009 -- but they have also killed civilians and stirred up animosity towards the U.S. in Pakistan.

    The mayor of NY, Mike Bloomturd, said it's some idiot upset over Obamacare. Nothing to worry about folks. Just some angry white guy.

    Huh, what, it was a Pakastani trying to flee the country, to Dubai? No way!?!
