Now al-Qaida claiming credit for downed chopper

Now al-Qaida is getting in on the action in Afghanistan today, claiming responsibility for the downing of a troop-carrying helicopter and promising more “revenge” for the U.S. assassination raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

Already the Taliban claimed credit for yesterday’s chopper attack that killed 38 in the largest loss of life suffered by foreign forces in a single incident in 10 years of war.

“The shooting of the U.S. aircraft is one of the first Jihadiya Salafiya reactions to the murder of Sheikh Osama bin Laden,” stated Abu Saqer, leader of Jihadiya Salafiya in the Gaza Strip, in a brief telephone interview with WND.
