    Re: Pakistani Taliban claims NYC car bomb attempt

    I really doubt the Taliban had any part in this, since the supposed device had really an amateurish quality to the explosive device, and the fact that the Taliban do have more experience with this type of thing. I think this is just people taken credit for stuff to boast about it. Well that is what I think at least is the problem here. I am not saying it is not possible, but this just seem a little bit fishy to me as to why they did such an amateurish device.

    That is not the group Catz was talking about

    A few Pakistani immigrants (including a doctor I believe) used the same method as a means to try to set off a car bomb at Heathrow I believe. It failed to blow up. Instead it just caught fire causing the suspects significant burn injuries

    OH yeah I totally misread he post, and those she meant the 7/7 attakcs.

    in 2007 there was one at Heathrow (an Indian) and one at Glasgow International.

    We know that these Indians had "connection" with Lashkar-e-Taiba

    What I think is possible in this case is that it was a localized group of Muslims who were ideologically sympathetic, but not part of the organized Taliban (i.e., not recruited and trained by them).

    It reminds me of cases that we saw in our community involving ALF. ALF utilizes leaderless resistance, independent cells operating without a leadership structure aside from the group itself. They bear no connection to the organization other than shared ideology. They learn how to commit acts of terror not at a training camp, but online or from peers.

    The bombs are often rather unsophisticated and involve well-known techniques that have been publicized online.

    Here's an example:
    Animal Liberation Front Flashback: Explosions Destroy Utah Feed Plant | Voice of the Voiceless

    I would not be surprised if these were not Pakistanis at all, but locals who were ideologically sympathetic. In that case, it isn't Pakistanis slipping into New York, but locals buying into their mentality...much harder to fight.

    At this point anything is possible. All we have to go on are those who take responsibility for it.

    Had it been Revolution Muslim, as Sgt. Rock claims in his thread, I don't think they would be taking responsibility because it would give the Government the capability of arresting every single member, or affiliate of the group.

    Yeah that is, what I think too Catz Part Deux that this was someone who sympathized with the Taliban.

    Mordor? No, that's New Jersey.

    It's not like the Taliban guys come with an identification stamp on their foreheads.

    Probably was, but I am not discounting the fact that it could have been someone like this guy.
