Police cleared the streets around Times Square when the vehicle was seen to be smoking late Saturday evening, before recovering un-detonated bomb components including cans of gasoline, tanks of propane, fireworks and other electrical equipment from the sport utility vehicle.(AP Photo/APTV)Manhattan, NY – Manhattan, NY – There is no proof to back a claim by a Pakistani Taliban group that it was responsible for a car bomb attempt in New York’s Times Square, city police chief Raymond Kelly said Sunday.

    “Although a Taliban bomb maker has claimed on the Internet… we have no evidence to support this claim,” Kelly told journalists the day after the failed bomb was found.

    An Internet video purportedly from the Tarik-e-Taliban group claimed responsibility, the US monitoring service SITE said.

    Posted on YouTube, the video said the attempted bombing was to avenge the recent killing of two top Al-Qaeda leaders in Iraq and US drone strikes in Pakistan, SITE said.

    1. You should add this on to the article from last night about the risk of terrorism!! what did obama say about this? is it only “random acts”

    2. Obama,, you just continue living in your lala wonderland, I wonder what it will take to wake you up.may g-d protect us all from the hands of our enemy’s.

    3. Qari Hussain Mehsud, the top bomb maker for the Movement of the Taliban in Pakistan, said he takes “fully responsibility for the recent attack in the USA.” Qari Hussain made the claim on an audiotape accompanied by images that was released on a YouTube website that calls itself the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan News Channel.

      The tape has yet to be verified, but US intelligence officials believe it is legitimate. The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan News Channel on YouTube was created on April 30. Officials believe it was created to announce the Times Square attack, and Qari Hussain’s statement was pre-recorded.

    4. #4 you are so right.
      we are of gehakte tzuris . all he knows how to do is go after the businessmen on wall street.
      he doesnt know how to protect our country
      he doesnt know how to deal with the oil spill
      he knows how to fly around on taxpayer money.
      save wall street before they move out and we lose their $$ too.
      then we will be a welfare state instead of the greatest state.
