MIRANSHAH (AFP) The main spokesman for Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) Thursday said the group neither trained nor recruited the Pakistani-American charged with terrorism over an attempted New York bombing. We dont even know him. We did not train him, Azam Tariq, TTP spokesman, told two AFP reporters by telephone from an undisclosed location. A video allegedly from the TTP claimed responsibility for the New York car bomb attempt. The credibility of that claim has been widely questioned. The Taliban spokesman, whose voice was recognised by both the AFP reporters familiar with him, congratulated Faisal Shahzad on the attempted bomb attack, but suggested he may have been trained by other militant factions. The job he has done was a tremendous one and we praised him for this job but the fact is that we even do not know Faisal, he said. He may be trained by any other militant group, the spokesman added. I deny this claim that Taliban were involved in this incident. This is propaganda against us. If we are involved in something, we admit it. According to the US criminal complaint, Shahzad admitted to receiving bomb-making training in Waziristan. The video purportedly from TTP claiming responsibility for Saturday nights car bomb attempt was posted on YouTube, instead of the password-protected websites where other Jihadist announcements are made.
