"Taliban cannot attack US targets"


Express May 05, 2010

RAWALPINDI: Pakistan’s Army Spokesman Major General Athar Abbas said that the Taliban’s capability to attack overseas targets in the US and elsewhere has been destroyed.

In a telephone interview from Rawalpindi, the Director General of ISPR said that the Taliban only have claims left to make.

The attempt to wreak havoc in Times Square came as TTP Chief Hakimullah Mehsud resurfaced in videos and vowed to attack US cities.

US and Pakistani officials have rejected out of hand a claim of responsibility for the New York plot posted by Mehsud's group on YouTube.

But sources said that investigators have grown more cautious as details are emerging in Faisal Shahzad's case.

Fahad Ahmed. | 11 years ago | Reply As far as TTP(Tehreek e Taliban of Pakistan) is concerned, they're too many different groups and they are not working under Afghan Taliban. And there's no doubt in it that U.S is allowing Indian weaponry flow to TTP. India has opened 'too many' consulates in Afghanistan(of-course with the approval & support of U.S) many of which are near the Afghanistan's region bordering with Pakistan. Most of them serve as 'intelligence bases' against Pakistan. In many anti-TTP operations by Pakistan Army, Indian weaponry has been found. But on the other hand, the same U.S is blaming Pakistan for incidents resulting from America's own policy-flaws & mistakes. This, for sure, is NOT going to work!
