Mumbai Police Home In on Attack Mastermind
The Wall Street Journal ^ | 12/2/08 | Geeta Anand

Posted on 12/02/2008 10:12:37 AM PST by Chicago Machine

A senior police official said that, in all, the names and numbers of five members of the Pakistani group's leadership were contained in a satellite phone left behind by the terrorists on a fishing vessel they hijacked then abandoned before reaching Mumbai. Records from the phone show calls had been made from it to these five men.

Among them: Yusuf Muzammil, head of Lashkar-e-Taiba's terrorism operations against India. The senior Indian police official said he was identified as the mastermind of the attacks by the only terrorist captured alive, Ajmal Kasab, or Qasab. The police official said two of Mr. Muzammil's deputies orchestrated the strikes, according to Mr. Kasab's testimony.

Pakistani terrorist organization that does Pakistan’s dirty work for it, so that Pakistan can maintain deniability. That way when you try to identify the group attacking you, it always turns out to be Pakistanis, but not Pakistan.

And Pakistan thinks it can hide behind that fig leaf indefinitely, and pay no price.

I heard an interview with an Indian political scientist last night, and he said Osama bin-Laden gave L-e-T $200,000 at the same time he was trying to organize al-Queda.

Who cares what the name of the “organization” was. Muzzie terrorists are Muzzie terrorists. Not freedom fighters. Not rebels. Not patriots. But, bloody murdering thugs. Nothing more, nothing less. Murdering thugs.

Doesn't "The One" know all about Pakistan, having himself travelled there on an Indonesian passport as a young man on a possible madrasah excursion?

And did not " The One" have likely connections with the Somali Muslim Council through his cousin Rial Odinga, the Shia Usurper of Kenya, in 2006/2007?

And was not Joe Biden telegraphing America on his " The One Will Be Tested" speech? Barely able to keep a secret? And now we wath the "President Pre-Elect's Coupe of US foreign policy prior to his so called "inauguration?"

OOOOohhh! One could easily write a novel on this.

I do not trust "the non COLB one" in the least.

Where is the CIA in all this?

Lashkar-e-Taiba is the same entity that carried out the Indian parliament bombing back in Dec 01’ which led to the Indo-Pak stand-off back in 02’ . . . wouldn’t be surprised to see a similar outcome here

But Obama doesn’t say off-gone-i-staun. Just reserves that special pronunciation for Pakistan. Probably has nothing to do with the trip (trips?) he took there when he would have barred from doing so as an American citizen. Nah. /s

As I understand it, they train with, and when necessary, fight with Al Quida.

They need to all be brought down hard, along with every individual, town, city, province, and country that harbors or supports any of them...ala WW II, IMHO.

IT'S TIME FOR A RETURN TO THE OLD SCHOOL

You may have missed the point of my post.

Armitage denies threatening Pakistan after 9/11

Former Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage denied on Friday that he told a Pakistani official the U.S. would bomb Pakistan "back to the Stone Age" if it did not cooperate with Washington in the war on terror following the Sept. 11 attacks.

Of course he had to deny it.

It may be its primary objective, but anyone with half a braincell should be able to figure out that even if they got it, it would just move the front lines to the next border.

They want the entire world. They won’t be satisfied with less until we convince them that they had better sit down, shut up and be happy with what they have, and back that up with solid steel.

Seriously, short of exterminating Islam from the face of the world — and it may just come to that eventually — the only way to keep Muslims from practicing Jihad is to stomp them until they apologize, and even THEN you had better keep your eyes on them constantly.

Islam means peace? What a contemptible lie!
