On Monday, Al Jazeera reported that Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan’s spokesman, Azam Tariq declared that they had accepted responsibility for some bombings in Pakistan but had nothing to do with bombing at a meena bazar in Peshawar and that in IIU Islamabad.  He went on to say that Blackwater, an American security firm( now called Xe)  was responsible for these attacks and was attempting to mar TTP’s image to discredit the militants by staging deadly attacks.

This video report from Al Jazeera includes shots of of Azam Tariq, a spokesman for the broad alliance of Pakistani militant groups known as the Tehreek-e-Taliban, saying, “I want to tell the people in Pakistan and the Muslim nation that the Tehreek-e-Taliban are not responsible for the bombings, but Blackwater and Pakistan’s spy agency are behind them.”
