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.

    "Taliban claims responsibility" it says, but nowhere in the article is this mentioned. Odd, again. Usually it's the White House reported that the FBI reported that al-jazeera reported that the Taliban takes credit. Now they just say "Taliban takes responsibility" and report about something else. Still, everyone reading the article will walk away thinking hmmmm, the Taliban did it. Too funny.

    To the trolls that use my name and write junk like I wear women's under wear, I'm gay, and sx stuff, I detest you most. I am a happily married man with two children. Yes I am from Panama, but I live in Florida and I hate the Taliban killing innocent people. I'm Ellis, and I love my wife.

    Oh. I get it now. CNN has figured out that most people only read the headline, so it doesn't really matter if the story backs-up claims made by the headline. never mind.

    That is weird how the headline says Taliban takes credit but there's nothing in the article about them making this claim. I fell for it though.

    There's nothing in the article about the Taliban claiming to have done this, yet the headline says it is so. This might be a little deep for you Ellis. Don't hurt yourself trying to figure it out.
