    Taliban want’s to speak against the attack, and ISIS has not claimed responsibility yet.
    So my guess is Taliban, what a fricking mess in Afghanistan. :(

      Daesh will claim it eventually. They always do!

        Maybe AQ but I doubt ISIS, but then why AQ, that will unleash everybody against them. I repeat, I go with the US directly.

      My guess is just the opposite. I say the US to stir up hatred by taking out a few “religious scholars and leaders”.

    Disgusting; either ISIS which I doubt or the US themselves with some brainwashed gimp, in order to raise tensions where necessary.
