Scimitar Attack in NY ... Yes or No

Does it disturb you that yesterday's massacre in New York was an retaliatory attack by the Taliban on American soil? Or was it? Is it legitimate to take credit for an act of violence when the actor did not do so as a member of said group that uses sacred violence?

Matthew Archbold includes a few other things that the Taliban has taken credit for.
