Pakistan Taliban Commander: We Have 'Thousands of Suicide Bombers' Who Can 'Target Washington, Paris, London, and Kabul'
On August 25, 2009, a Pakistani Urdu-language newspaper reported that Waliur Rehman, the commander of the Taliban militants in Pakistan's tribal district of South Waziristan Agency, had said that his group has "thousands of suicide bombers" who can "target Washington, Paris, London, and Kabul."

This might not be a bad thing. Just saying ...
...what most of us are thinking but couldn't figure as tactful a way of saying.
It IS a bad thing...and that’s a fact.
Most of the people “educated” in Washington DC’s schools couldn’t find Pakistan, let alone the Swat Valley, on a map.
Luckily, most of the people in the Swat Valley couldn’t find Washington DC on a map either.
When the CIA lets DC burn the future brass at the future CIA can claim the Dresden defense in 70 years when the info is declassified.
Yep, most of the Taliban threats are meant for the Afghanistan-Pakistan area.
The unfortunate truth is that the jihad is global, and it doesn’t take a person from Pakistan to carry out the threat in any of these locations.
So, bottom line, this is a threat duly posted, duly noted and now it is archived.
Do you suppose they could squeeze San Francisco onto the list? I mean, just as a suggestion...
That is something to be most thankful for!
“It IS a bad thing...and thats a fact.”
I have often wondered how different it would have been if the 911 terrorists had concentrated their efforts on Washington instead of the World Trade Center...
Some would say we would be better off.
You mean the same member of the public that overwhelmingly put Obama and the RATs in control of this country? Not getting a warm fuzzy from that image.
Well, when you have thousands of people pouring across the border every night, it wouldn’t be shocking to me at all if there were terrorists already among us, waiting to strike.
The two Muslim D.C. Snipers beat them to it by several years, but we’re not supposed to refer to them as Islamic terrorists.
All I know is that when we get hit, the current president is so stupid that he;ll blame this either on Bush or “rightwing radicals”. I’ll see you all at the nearest FEMA detention center, block F for FR..
Hey Hadji, we have thousands of nuclear weapons, which we can use to target Pashtun areas.
Uh.. no. They are brain-dead. I'm talking the OTHER half of the population, including now, many of the people that sincerely rue voting for the Zero!
People are more watchful these days, much more so, according to more than one report.
Bad Jemian, Bad!
I’m a conservative, not a Republican. I’ve pretty much disowned the best rep in the US House, John Kline, for voting — twice! — for the first bailout that started all the bailouts and stimuli and buyings and other Bountiful Stuff (a Glenn Beck euphimism for BS).
I know we should care about our elected and appointed officials, regardless of party. There are some good ones — but so BLASTED few! Lighten up and consider having most of the dross, and only some of the keepers, just gone....
Pakistan Taliban Commander: We Have ‘Thousands of Suicide Bombers’ Who Can ‘Target Washington, Paris, London, and Kabul’
This reeks of desperation. What are you waiting for? Oh right, you’ve been kept on the run for the past 8 years.
This is Baghdad Bobbish puff talk.
But if push came to shove, might some of our wonderful ACORN folks be persuaded to deliver tit for tat back at the Slammies’ home towns?
It’s not shocking; it’s fact.
>>The two Muslim D.C. Snipers beat them to it by several years, but were not supposed to refer to them as Islamic terrorists.<<
Would Mohammedan meatheads do? Murdering followers of a goat-humping pedophile?
shouldn't be any trouble, since the muslims are a friendly, peace loving people.
They’re not willing, yet. Obama has kept up much of the Bush war strategy on the Q.T. and he’s proven to be so two-faced that even his Moose buddies can’t trust him. (I guess that’s a silver lining to having a liar as Commander in Chief.)
"Oh Yeah? Well, we have thousands of attorneys that can target the CIA."
Oh its just another example of islamist psychological warfare.
If he had “thousands of suicide bombers” available to hit key targets, why is he bothering to brag about it? Why doesn’t he just use them?
Don’t let them get to you. They’re dangerous, but they aren’t all-powerful either.
I agree with you, they have been kept on the run for eight years and governments that might assist them have had the fear of George W. Bush instilled in them.
Let’s face it that last administration sent the fear of God into some world leaders when they just started kicking ass and taking names.
Do people remember Colonel Muammar Qaddafi calling up and letting George W. know that he was playing nice now and of course there are dead guys like the leader of Iraq and unknown numbers of guys that thought they were the next man up to lead the Taliban or whatever.
Hah...and the odds are that 99% of them are so obvious that even we could stop them. Hopefully, that other 1% would by stopped by our ultra-vigilant border patrol...
In all seriousness... most would be caught easily - it’s those last few that could cause a problem.
“It IS a bad thing...and thats a fact.”
Agreed! IF it’s a fact, of course. One can never be sure with these terrorist blowhards.
One thing is damn sure tho’ Barak Obama, and his racist AG Eric Holder, with their witch hunt against the CIA have just put up a “Hit me again” sign on the US.
Just let the clowns try something against the USA. Obama will slap a court order on them so fast, they won’t know what hit ‘em.
It’s a good thing we secure the Mexican border so well. Those bombers will never get in that way!
"Our attacks on American cities will begin ... in 5 minutes."
their cell phones? Dontcha mean their blackberries?
Do you mean the 2 maryland snipers? Weird, ithat’s the seocnd time in a couple of days they’ve came up ...very disturbing they way the original profilers portrayed them. I’m sick of the politically correct crap when it comes to terrorist threats, activies etc..
How about “one of ours=100,00 of yours”, after all we have all sorts of fun stuff like the neutron bomb
Actually, we don't.
Three types of ERW were built by the United States.
The W66 warhead, for the anti-ICBM Sprint missile system, was produced and deployed in the mid 1970s and retired soon thereafter, along with the missile system.
The W70 Mod 3 warhead was developed for the short-range, tactical Lance missile, and the W79 Mod 0 was developed for artillery shells.
The latter two types were retired by President George H. W. Bush in 1992, following the end of the Cold War.
The last W70 Mod 3 warhead was dismantled in 1996, and the last W79 Mod 0 was dismantled by 2003, when the dismantling of all W79 variants was completed.
But don't worry, Russia, China, and even Israel have them aplenty.
it is probable that China has a stockpile of neutron bombs, Russia has neutron bombs and Israel has hundreds of neutron weapons.
My bad, I do not follow that area.
I gather we could make a lot of better stuff, if we absolutely had to.
The root cause, of course, is the Muslin mind set.
If a Muslim President (their point of view) and countless apologies do not turn that mindset, we need to evaluate how to protect our life and liberty
The whole reason for Obama is to remove our defenses and go naked into the utopia of world peace. Have you never seen a "coexist" bumper sticker?
Did you mean Coventry?
I can see the CIA letting Washington burn to capture a few more fat slobs so that ZerO can have them over for tea and crumpets.
If there ever is a Taliban Army that arises in the United States to do these deeds, they will probably originate in Detroit or Lackawanna.
“Just let the clowns try something against the USA. Obama will slap an EXECUTIVE ORDER on them so fast, they wont know what hit em.”
There, fixed it.
I’m as worried of Eric Holder coming after me as I am the Taliban coming for me.
You mean you still have doubts? It should be apparent to most people that many terrorists have been here quite some time, waiting for orders to complete their plans. Did you see the released docs last week that outlined the terrorist actions stopped by water boarding? One of them was a second strike by the same people who attacked the WTC, but they called it off after Bush put his security measures into play.
They are here, just waiting and Bozo the WH clown is giving them all the rope they need to attack us again.
If it ever gets to that point, there will be no detention centers for FReepers, only showers and crematoriums.
Let them try it! If they do we’ll have the UN send them an admonishment letter, that will teach them.
, we need to evaluate how to protect our life and liberty...
I remember dierectly after 9/11, literally within minutes of being attacked, I was planning for the coming war and my part in it when a young man stated that he was very disturbed by all of the talk about war, that we had to understand that these kinds of things make us all “stronger” and that we should not use military force at all just because we were attacked - and bodies were falling out of the NY sky.
My point is that I fear that surrender - or a similar compromise - would be perfectly acceptable to many, many people here.
We also need to plan how to protect ourselves from them.
