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”.

Mumbai terror attacks similar to 1993 New York Landmarks plot 07 Dec 2008 The meticulous planning and execution of the Mumbai terror attack, which has left the country's security agencies scurrying for cover, might not be as original as it is presumed to be, because of its eerie resemblance to the 1993 New York Landmarks Plot, hatched by Al-Qaeda [al-CIAduh].

Gunmen were on drugs drugged during Mumbai attacks 03 Dec 2008 Those responsible for last week's attacks in Mumbai fueled their terror binge with cocaine and hallucinogens, Indian officials say. "We found injections containing traces of cocaine and LSD left behind by the terrorists and later found drugs in their blood," one official told London newspaper the Telegraph. Syringes and other drug paraphernalia were found on the scene of the horrific crimes. The drugs help explain how the 10 young men were able to fight hundreds of Indian commandos for 50 hours without stopping to eat or sleep. One militant fought for 6 hours despite a severe wound to his thigh before later being killed by commando fire.

Arrests made in Mumbai terror attack, but one may be Indian undercover officer, igniting controversy --Police were still investigating how the 10 gunmen obtained the SIM cards. 06 Dec 2008 Senior police officers in Indian Kashmir, which has been at the heart of tensions between India and Pakistan, demanded the release of arrested officer Mukhtar Ahmed, saying he was one of their own and had been involved in infiltrating Kashmiri militant groups. The implications of Ahmed's involvement -- that Indian agents may have been in touch with the militants and perhaps supplied the SIM cards used in the attacks -- added to the growing list of questions over India's ill-trained security forces, which are widely blamed for not thwarting the attacks. Earlier Saturday, Calcutta police announced the arrests of Ahmed and Tauseef Rahman, who allegedly bought SIM cards by using fake documents, including identification cards of dead people.

Mumbai militants used Pakistani soil: Rice 07 Dec 2008 Pakistani territory was used to stage recent attacks on the Indian city of Mumbai, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said on Sunday, as she again urged Islamabad to help bring perpetrators to justice. Pakistan has called for India to back up its charges of Pakistani involvement with proof. But in interviews with U.S. television networks, Rice said there was no doubt the militants behind the Mumbai attack had operated from Pakistani soil, although she said probably "non-state" actors [CIA] were involved.

Pakistan raids camp of group blamed for Mumbai 07 Dec 2008 Pakistani security forces on Sunday raided a camp used by Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), two sources said, in a strike against the militant group blamed by India for last month's deadly attacks on Mumbai. Local man Nisar Ali told Reuters the operation began in the afternoon in Shawai on the outskirts of Muzaffarabad, the capital of the Pakistani side of disputed Kashmir region.

Hoax call to Zardari "put Pakistan on war alert" 06 Dec 2008 Pakistan put its forces on high alert after someone pretending to be India's foreign minister made a phone call to President Asif Ali Zardari threatening war after the Mumbai attacks began, Dawn newspaper said on Saturday. "It's true," a diplomat with knowledge of the exchanges told Reuters when asked whether the report was correct.

Mumbai 'Oddities' By Lori Price 07 Dec 2008

Pakistan ex-spy chief: U.S. wants him on terror list 07 Dec 2008 A former head of the Pakistani military's Inter-Services Intelligence agency said Sunday the United States wants him on a U.N. list of people and organizations linked to 'al Qaeda' and the Taliban. Long retired, Lieutenant-General Hamid Gul told Reuters the U.S. moves against him began several weeks ago, pre-dating the latest controversy surrounding the ISI. Gul, a vocal critic of the U.S. military presence in Afghanistan [the actual reason the US wants him on the terror (aka dissenter) list], said Pakistani foreign ministry officials had confirmed to him the United States was trying to put him on the U.N. list.

Supply trucks hit in brazen attack in Pakistan 07 Dec 2008 In one of the biggest and most brazen attacks of its kind to date, suspected Taliban insurgents with heavy weapons attacked two truck stops in northwest Pakistan early today, destroying more than 150 vehicles carrying supplies bound for U.S.-led troops in Afghanistan. The predawn attack on the outskirts of the city of Peshawar left the grounds of the truck terminals littered with the burned-out shells of Humvees and other military vehicles.

Taliban in Pakistan set fire to 100 Nato lorries bound for Afghanistan 07 Dec 2008 Hundreds of Taliban fighters stormed a crucial Nato depot outside the Pakistani city of Peshawar yesterday, destroying more than 100 lorries which would have taken supplies to American and British forces in Afghanistan. The gunmen overpowered and disarmed the security guards, before setting fire to the vehicles, many of which were laden with Humvee armoured cars intended for Western forces.
