Pak Taliban link still unclear

world Updated: May 13, 2010 00:05 IST

US officials investigating the failed car bombing in Times Square are still far from certain about the role Pakistani insurgent groups may have played in orchestrating the attempt, the Senate intelligence committee’s top Republican said.

Sen. Christopher Bond, R-Mo., said he has seen no hard evidence that a Pakistani group — or groups — planned or directed the May 1 attempt, allegedly carried out by Faisal Shahzad.

He added that White House statements suggesting a central role by the Pakistani Taliban were based on “suspicions and tenuous connections.”
