Islamist Group Claims Texas Blast

From the Lebanese Daily Star:

A shadowy Islamist group which claimed it carried out last week’s suicide bombing in Qatar said in an Internet statement it was responsible for an oil refinery explosion in Texas that left 15 people dead.

“It was a new kind of operation as we promised before,” said the “Jund al-Sham Organization” (Organization of Soldiers of the Levant) in the statement posted on an Islamist Web site and dated March 24.

“Jund al-Sham is able to attack with an iron fist all the enemies of Allah wherever they are,” added the statement, whose authenticity could not be verified.

However, the FBI rejected this claim on Friday.

(It looks as if this is just another “Cody” story.)
