Skip to comments.''I was told to kill to my last breath'': Captured terrorist
Posted on 11/29/2008 5:47:41 PM PST by libh8er
The only terrorist captured alive after the Mumbai massacre has given police the first full account of the extraordinary events that led to it revealing he was ordered to kill until the last breath. Azam Amir Kasab, 21, from Pakistan, said the attacks were meticulously planned six months ago and were intended to kill 5,000 people. He revealed that the ten terrorists, who were highly trained in marine assault and crept into the city by boat, had planned to blow up the Taj Mahal Palace hotel after first executing British and American tourists and then taking hostages. As it is, their deadly attacks have left close to 200 confirmed dead, with the toll expected to rise to nearly 300 once the hotel has been fully searched by security forces.
Yesterday, Kasab chillingly went through details of Wednesday nights killing spree across the city, which ended when he was cornered by police.He pretended to be dead, which probably saved his life. It was only when he was being transferred to hospital by ambulance that his accompanying officer noticed he was still breathing.
Once inside Nair Hospital, Kasab, who suffered only minor injuries, told medical staff: I do not want to die. Please put me on saline.
And as Indian commandos ended the bloody 59-hour siege at the Taj yesterday by killing the last three Islamic gunmen, baby-faced Kasab was dispassionately detailing the background to the mayhem. He described how its mastermind briefed the group to target whites, preferably Americans and British.Some of the militants, including Kasab, posed as students during a visit to Mumbai a month ago, filming the strike locations and familiarising themselves with the citys roads.

Now if he were at Obama's Gitmo... he'd be getting fat awaiting imminent release...
The next attack, allegedly scheduled for a few months from now, is likely to occur within the USA in multiple cities/locations - and the terrorists won't have to recon the sites, because the attackers are already here attending local mosques.
“Yesterday, Kasab chillingly went through details of Wednesday nights killing spree across the city..”
All information was voluntarily given under no duress. I wish you Injuns would teach our interrogators how to get to the truth, quickly. Congratulations!
“...target whites, preferably Americans and British...”
As usual, the demographic doing the most to preserve civilization.
Which is of course, the same thing as running cowardly terrorist’s asses into the ground in THEIR own countries.
Maybe Columbia University will invite him to speak in the interests of holding a dialog.
Behold the wonderful works of Islam.
I think they’ll find a much different response in the US.
A lot more folks immediately shooting back.
Islam is a death cult.
You are correct. Hell even the detainees at the current GTMO are getting fat.
Oh my! i hope they dont pour water on his face or other mean stuff!
This guy couldn't even follow that simple order. Typical muslim.
This should be read by EVERYONE on Free Republic.
This could’ve been worse than 9/11 folks.
And half (or more) of this country doesn’t believe it’ll happen again.
Hell, the next President, Hussein, is ignorant of the danger. Willingly. That jerk thinks George W. Bush was the problem.
But Rosie O’Donnel told us they are parents and they don’t want to hurt us! Is Rosie full of crap?
And don’t forget the panties!!!!
Make it Rosie O’Donnell’s panties.
Well, he should suffer mightily before we kill his ass.
My family was involved in this - in a very personal and “on-the-scene” way.
...target whites, preferably Americans and British...
The prospects of America waking up now have dimmed and is just about gone. With this election and with the support of our congress and senate the terrorist invite into this country is guarenteed. I would think the next four years will be blamed on Bush causing Islamic anger and retaliation, the new administartion and their cohorts in congress and the senate will explain, as a means of avoiding action. Our govenrment will sit by and take it when it comes and want to sit and talk. What a sad ending to a great nation! Batten down the hatches where in for a rough ride!

Are you two related? Married? Split personality?
Just curious. :)
Insurgents? Insurgents? On what basis can they claim that?
On the thinnist of reeds the MSM refers to al Qaeda in Iraq as "insurgents". But these guys don't even have that thin reed. All of them are terrorists in my book.
The Wehrmacht loaded up their soldiers with amphetamines. The similarities are uncanny.
The approved term for the Mumbai terrorists appears to be "militants", rather than "insurgents".
Betcha the guy who wrote this has no idea there is a distinction. Or what either means, precisely.
If they were truly interested in accuracy-in-reporting the term, indeed, would be "terrorist".
"Wanton killing of innocents in pursuit of a political (or religious) objective" counts as a terrorist to me, too.

“Meanwhile, the former head of Britain’s SAS has revealed that Britain is not adequately prepared for a Mumbai-style terror attack. He said hundreds of civilians would have been massacred if such an assault was carried out in this country. “
Wait till they target a school here.
“Is Rosie full of crap?”
The horror of Beslan has been forgotten.
Mainly due to the failure of our media to show Beslan.
Muslims kill. Muslims kill. Muslims kill. Muslims kill.
No, we are separate people. I used to be extremely liberal, though. Ex-hippie probably was, too. :)
That man has a promising future in the DNC in ANY blue city in the US.
Ayerrs will have him over to his house soon.
islam and Pakistan is targeting whites.
We’re all safe now, though. Obama is in the Office of the President Elect.
I am sure he will issue a statement from there telling both sides to calm down.
Just look already what the Magic Zero has done for the price of gas!
As we shall see from the ObamaMedia:
All good will be due to “Barack”.
All evil will be due to the residue of “Bush”
Yes, we are seperate people.
I used to be a very liberal hippie, but even then I was strange, as I was always anti commie and pro military and very patriotic. NOw, THAT was strange.
There are a lot of us ‘recovered libs” out there, one of the most famous being David Horowitz.
I’m sure they are only attacking because President Bush refuses to resign now. They want our dear leader from the Orifice of President Elect to become full POTUS so he can begin immediately his great work to save us all from global warming and other such dribble.
