Erm, i didn't claim it wasn't the Taliban. I simply think we should wait to see who it was. The insurgency is a patchwork of interests many of whom coalesce and use the Taliban 'franchise'. The area where the attack took place is outside of the traditional Taliban strongholds. The Taliban usually claim responsibility for their attacks. Is there any evidence in that article that it was Taliban, apart from the say so of a police chief who probably doesn't have the identity of the bomber, never mind carrying out any type of investigation? Like I said, irrespective of who did it, the action is vile and despicable.
