Quote of the Day – The Taliban did it edition
Apparently – even after the Taliban of Pakistan claimed responsibility in a video recorded before the bombing attempt in Times Square – the US finally believes they were involved:
“We’ve now developed evidence that shows that the Pakistani Taliban was behind the attack,” [Attorney General Eric] Holder said during an appearance on ABC’s “This Week.”
“We know that they helped facilitate it,” the attorney general said. “We know that they probably helped finance it. And that he was working at their direction.”
Well there you go. We also know that they’re either lousy bomb makers or lousy teachers or both, as well — thank goodness. The other thing to remember is this attempt wasn’t thwarted – it failed.
Just like the “underpants bomber”.
