“Very soon, our jihad…is reaching New York and Washington."
This isn't really news in the sense that it was previously unknown. It's news in the sense that the media avoids covering it because the official narrative is that Faisal Shahzad was another lone wolf bomber upset over losing his home... when he was actually a Pakistani Taliban terrorist.
Now the Tehreek-e-Taliban or Pakistani Taliban is threatening more attacks in New York and Washington.
Pakistan’s most dangerous terrorist organization, the Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP), has promised it will attack New York and Washington, D.C., in an act of revenge with suicide fighters, according to a newly released video obtained by TheBlaze.
The group also claims responsibility for the most deadly attack in CIA history and the failed bombing of New York’s Times Square.
It also has a map of the United States with animated bombs dropping and exploding and warns that fighters who have already been trained have infiltrated NATO countries to continue TTP’s global jihad mission.
“Very soon, our jihad…is reaching New York and Washington; our fidayees will very soon enter NATO countries,” it quotes Hussain Ahmed as saying.
“[W]hatever skills you have, whether you be a Muslim living in a NATO country, or Muslims living in Iraq, New York, or Washington, we invite them to study Islam, recite the Koran, look at its orders, then come to the mujahideen and we will train you, stand in our ranks,” it says.
The Pakistani Taliban is trying to bootstrap itself to become an international terrorist organization. And it's doing it using the low cost Al Qaeda method of signing up local Muslims, like Nidal Hassan or the Tsarnaevs.
The US withdrawal is a major problem for Tehreek-e-Taliban which needs a war against America to justify its internal power struggles. While it appears that the United States may not fully withdraw from Afghanistan, if the targets aren't available, the Pakistani Taliban will have to come to the United States.
That's why withdrawal isn't really much of a solution. Not so long as have easy immigration from Pakistan and other Muslim countries.
Now the prospect of a withdrawal is only encouraging terrorist groups like the Pakistani Taliban to expand its horizons in the same way that Al Qaeda in Iraq looked beyond Iraq to Syria.
Muslim terrorists aren't "radicalized" when we bomb their countries, in retaliation for their attacks against us. They need to be in a conflict with us because it gives them meaning and power.
