The top Taliban commander in Pakistan promised an assault on Washington “soon” – one he says will “amaze” the world.

“Soon we will launch an attack in Washington that will amaze everyone in the world,” Baitullah Mehsud told The Associated Press by phone.

Mehsud also claimed responsibility for Monday’s attack on a police academy outside the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore, saying it was in retaliation for U.S. missile strikes against militants along the Afghan border.

Mehsud and other Pakistani Taliban militants are believed to be based in the country’s lawless areas near the border with Afghanistan, where they have stepped up their attacks throughout Pakistan.

One year ago, CBS News security correspondent Bob Orr reported that U.S. intelligence officials were increasingly concerned that Mehsud could eclipse even Osama bin Laden as a threat to America.

The U.S. recently announced a $5 million bounty on Mehsud’s head. Asked about it, he told the AP he would be happy to “embrace martyrdom.”
