Is Headley an American agent who turned rogue?
TNN 27 November 2009, 01:26am IST
NEW DELHI: It's a plot that could be straight out of the bluff-and-double-bluff worlds created by John le Carre and Frederick Forsyth. Only, it
seems to have played out in real life, to the tragic misfortune of hundreds of innocent people. The tantalising possibility that David Coleman Headley may have been a US undercover agent who turned rogue is vexing many here as American authorities keep the US-based Lashkar jihadi out of the reach of Indian investigators.
To make the tale even more dramatic, Headley may just have provided American intelligence agencies information that prevented a Lashkar attack on Mumbai in September. The theory -- and it's still a theory -- is that Headley was used to infiltrate the Lashkar, but gradually went astray under the influence of the very terrorists he was supposed to be spying upon.
The CIA-ISI axis: India should have no illusions of US support
By C. Uday Bhaskar: India is maintaining politico-diplomatic pressure on Pakistan to comply with its international obligations apropos the Mumbai terror attack of Nov 26. Home Minister P. Chidambaram would visit the US in the course of this week with a detailed dossier that would include “irrefutable evidence” about the involvement of Pakistan-based terrorists in the Mumbai attacks.

Awar between India and Pakistan is unthinkable, believes Shah Zaman Khan,Minister, Press, at the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi.
The war hysteria in both nations is being fuelled by “one common enemy that does not want India and Pakistan to be friends,” the senior Pakistani diplomat asserts. “What we have seen in Mumbai is altogether a third party conspiracy.”
Former ISI Chief: Mumbai And 9/11 Both “Inside Jobs”
Hamid Gul tells CNN that neo-cons, zionists were behind terror attacks

General Hamid Gul, the former head of the Pakistani ISI, told CNN yesterday that both the Mumbai attacks and 9/11 were “inside jobs,” much to the chagrin of host and CFR luminary Fareed Zakaria, who told viewers that Gul’s opinions were “absolutely wrong and thoroughly discredited”.
This could be evidence of an inside job or, as stated, an officer on an undercover mission. Either way, it casts suspicion on the whole story. This sort of information could disappear like similar info about 9/11 did, since we are supposed to be seeing the Pakistanis as the bad guys.
Is suspect a cop or a hood?
Accused is one of ours, India counterinsurgency agency says

SRINAGAR, India -- One of the two Indian men arrested for illegally buying mobile phone cards used by the gunmen in the Mumbai attacks was a police officer who may have been on an undercover mission, security officials said yesterday in demanding his release.
The arrests, announced in the eastern city of Calcutta, were the first since the bloody siege ended.
But what was touted as a rare success for India's beleaguered law enforcement agencies quickly turned sour as police in two Indian regions squared off against one another.
Senior police officers in Indian Kashmir -- at the heart of tensions between India and Pakistan -- demanded the release of Mukhtar Ahmed, saying he was one of their own and had been involved in infiltrating Kashmiri militant groups.

I have mentioned it and/or alluded to it in most of my posts dealing with Iran, namely that Iran will be used by the US and its allies to stir sectarianism wherever a Shiite minority exists. I mentioned Lebanon, Bahrain, Kuwait, Pakistan, Yemen and Saudi Arabia.
I have come to this conclusion after close study of the Iraqi "experiment".
Already a year ago, I have been saying that Pakistan is next on the list. I maintain what I said.
The Mumbai attacks add an extra confirmation to my hypothesis.
The first thing the Western Media and the Indian government did, while the fights were still raging, was to point an accusatory finger at Pakistan - including guess who ? Patrick Cockburn, the "firebrand" Mullah Sadr, lover.
For those of you who have been following the news, Pakistan for the past 4 months or so has witnessed an escalation of US air force attacks on it, in particular in the tribal areas bordering Afghanistan, under the pretext of fighting terrorism.
Among the many people killed in Mumbai last week were some of the City's top anti-terror peace officers. Hemant Karkare, head of India's Anti-Terrorism Squad, was the most notable figure to be killed in action, and his story is doubly significant for visitors to this site, because he was in the middle of unraveling a False Flag terror attack, (which occurred on September 29, 2008), and was initially blamed on Muslims, such as the "Students Islamic Movement of India" (SIMI) or the "Indian Mujahideen".
However, in the course of his investigation of the 9/29 Malegaon bombing Karkare uncovered a surprising connection: an Indian Army officer, Lt-Col Shrikant Purohit was linked to the blasts, and was caught red-handed trying to cover his tracks;
Despite Common Dreams' David Lindorff having previously dismissed "conspiracy theories," in his latest Mumbai article over at democrats.com, he concludes saying, " And let us hope that Americans finally demand an honest accounting of what happened on 9/11/2001 and that those who are guilty of allowing it to happen ... are exposed and forced to pay for their ineptness and their crimes."
We don't need to convince everyone that 9-11 was an inside job in order to create a groundswell of public support for a new 9-11 investigation. So Lindorff, for all his previous arrogant claims about nutty conspiracy theories, can prove to be an important ally. It's a question of deciding our foremost objective.

"In mid-September this year, the CIA station chief in Delhi sought an urgent meeting with his counterpart in R&AW to pass on some critical inputs. This was part of an understanding that Indian and American intelligence had institutionalised in the aftermath of 9/11. From its assets in Pakistan and Afghanistan, American intelligence had come to learn that the Lashkar-e-Toiba was planning to launch a major terrorist attack in Mumbai, which would be carried out from the sea."
Later in the article;
"By the middle of November, as Indian intelligence continued to check out further inputs, the pieces of an intricate jigsaw puzzle began to fall into place. Sources say they learnt that the attack would come from the sea and that the Taj Hotel would be a major target. However, it was not known whether this attack would be carried out by planting bombs in the hotel or by terrorists carrying small arms. Indian intelligence assessments were tilting towards bombs being planted and security at the hotel was beefed up accordingly to prevent terrorists from planting bombs inside the premises."
India's 9/11. Who was Behind the Mumbai Attacks?

The Mumbai terror attacks were part of a carefully planned and coordinated operation involving several teams of experienced and trained gunmen.
The operation has the fingerprints of a paramilitary-intelligence operation. According to a Russian counter terrorist expert, the Mumbai terrorists "used the same tactics that Chechen field militants employed in the Northern Caucasus attacks where entire towns were terrorized, with homes and hospitals seized". (Russia Today, November 27, 2008).
The Mumbai attacks are described as " India's 9/11".
The attacks were carried out simultaneously in several locations, within minutes of each other.
