Pakistani Taliban claim credit for CIA bombing

The Taliban in Pakistan have claimed that they used a CIA operative that was sympathetic to the Taliban cause to carry out the suicide bombing that killed seven American CIA in Afghanistan. This comes after reports that claim the CIA were expecting the individual to show up and welcomed him into the base for a meeting with intelligence operatives.

The Taliban claim the suicide attack was an act of revenge for a U.S. lead missile strike that killed a top militant leader.

The announcement is nearly impossible to verify.

The Pakistani Taliban normally do not claim credit for attacks inside of Afghanistan's borders.

“There is much about the attack that isn’t yet known, but this much is clear: The CIA’s resolve to pursue aggressive counter-terrorism operations is greater than ever,” CIA spokesman George Little told The Associated Press.
