Taliban claims responsibility for Pakistan blast

A blast Saturday at an anti-Taliban meeting in northwest Pakistan killed eight people and wounded 12, a senior government official said.

The blast occurred at an open air restaurant in the village of Pashta, where members of an anti-Taliban, pro-government militia were meeting, said Muhammad Jamil, a senior government official in Bajaur Agency.

Bajaur Agency, the equivalent of a county, borders Afghanistan's volatile Kunar Province.

    Back at ya
    here's one more before I'm done for the night

    A man applies for a job as mechanic. The boss says, "Can you roll your hard hat down your arm and pop it back on your head?"

    The mechanic nods, confused.

    "Can you play lightsaber with your wrench and another man's screwdriver?"

    "Oh yes," says the mechanic.

    "Can you bounce your screwdriver off the cement, grab it, whirl it around and put it in your belt like a gun?"

    "Sir, I've been doing that for years!" says the wanna-be mechanic.

    "Well in that case, I can't use you. I have 12 men doing that already!" says the boss.

      Such is to be expected from a person of obvious limitations like you. I bet that you never finished high school,did you or did you even get past the 7th grade? It doesn't appear that way.

    I guess CNN just figured that because the bombing happened at an anti-Taliban militia meeting, it HAD to ba the Taliban.....poor reporting on CNN's part.
