Mumbai: mise à jour sur les attentats


Mumbai: mise à jour sur les attentats

India's 9/11. Who was Behind the Mumbai Attacks?

by Michel Chossudovsky

Washington is Fostering Political Divisions between India and Pakistan

From Bad to Worse

Doctors who conducted the post-mortem said the bodies of the terrorists – especially their faces - were beyond recognition. The security forces identified the bodies as those of terrorists [on TV they said it was because of the presence of weaponry near the bodies]. One terrorist was shot through either eye (i.e., both eyes!!!). As the NSG commandos never got to such close range with the terrorists, and nobody commits suicide by shooting both his own eyes, it follows that the killers were somebody else.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Shot through both eyes? Preventing identification via retinal scan?

Search for Mumbai gunman's roots only deepens mystery

Indian officials and news media officials identified him variously as Ajmal Amir Kamal, Azam Amir Kasav, or Azam Ameer Qasab, and Indian news media quoted police as saying that the alleged killer's home village was in Faridkot, near the city of Multan in the southern part of Pakistan's Punjab province.

Local residents, however, are bewildered and alarmed. They said there was no one of that surname in this village, and no missing resident who fit the pictures and description shown in the Indian news media.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Another frame-up starts to dissolve.

Mumbai Terrorists Were Aided By Indian Authorities

Numerous disturbing details now strongly indicate that the terrorists who indiscriminately slaughtered nearly 200 people in Mumbai were aided by some elements of the Indian security apparatus responsible for protecting the city.

It has now been confirmed that the Indian security services received numerous precise warnings that terrorists were planning to arrive by sea and attack the Taj Mahal hotel, but if anything security was relaxed, allowing the terrorists to prolong the attack for days and not hours.

Taj Mahal Hotel chairman: We had warning

The Taj Mahal Hotel in Mumbai, India, had been warned about the possibility of a terrorist attack before a 60-hour rampage began Wednesday, leaving at least 183 people dead, the chairman of the company that owns the hotel said Saturday.
Tata Group Chairman Ratan Tata, whose company owns the Taj Hotel, discusses this week's attacks in Mumbai.

The hotel heightened security as a result, the chairman of the Tata Group and Taj Hotels, Ratan Tata, said in an interview with CNN's Fareed Zakaria.

There were indications, though, that the hotel relaxed the security before the attack.

Mumbai Mumbai Who Did It?

More evidence of CIA-backed syndicate involvement in Mumbai attacks

Under pressure from Washington, this past May Pakistan’s Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gillani cut a secret deal with the United States and India to turn over to Delhi a number of residents of Pakistan wanted by India for terrorism. One of those included in the deal was the CIA’s erstwhile asset, Mumbai-born Dawood Ibrahim, a veteran of CIA operations in Afghanistan during the mujahedin war against the Soviets.

The Mumbai Attacks: More Than Meets the Eye

As details emerge about who was responsible for the terrorist attacks in Mumbai last week, the evidence points to a militant group and network of associates that can be linked to a number of intelligence agencies, including the ISI, the CIA, and MI6.

Mumbai Attacks: Piecing Together the Story

There is a torrent of information and analysis on the recent attacks in Mumbai, but much of the story is nowhere to be seen in the American mainstream media. Here's a guide to what you might have missed:

What happened?

Saikat Datta of Outlook India writes that by mid-September, Indian agencies knew that the attack would come from the sea, and by mid-November they knew that the Taj hotel would be targeted. And yet the attacks still happened. A blow-by-blow account of how the plan to attack Mumbai by sea was hatched and executed.

Pakistani TV: 'Hindu Zionists' and Mossad Behind Mumbai Massacre

A Pakistani TV station has claimed "Hindu Zionists" and the Mossad carried out the Mumbai terrorist attacks, which it said were a "botched" imitation of the 9/11 attacks on the United States.

The terrorists looked like Hindus and "no Pakistani speaks the language they chatted in," said security expert Zaid Hamid on the television's "I Differ" news channel show.

Mumbai was a 'suicide mission', but now we have a lone living gunman?

This fact rubs me the wrong way the most.
These guys were reportedly on cocaine, steroids, using syringes and other things, yet no one had suicide pills? Or if they did, this lone captured gunman just happened to not take one?

Something's rotten in Denmark

India not considering military action against Pakistan

India External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee Tuesday denied that India is considering military action against Pakistan at this stage, reported Indo Asian News Service.

But Mukherjee confirmed that India was waiting for Islamabad to act strongly against armed militants based in its territory responsible for terror attacks in the country.

Mumbai: The Perils of Blaming Pakistan

On Sunday, Indian media began reporting that the only attacker captured alive, a Versace-T-shirted 21-year-old by the name of Ajmal Amir Kamal, was Pakistani, and that he had identified all his fellow militants as being trained by the banned Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Toiba. Pakistanis are suspicious of these claims. "There is simply not enough evidence at this point to blame Pakistan," says Najam Sethi, editor of the English political weekly, the Friday Times.

Mumbai cemetery won't bury gunmen

A Muslim graveyard has refused to bury nine gunmen who terrorized Mumbai over three days last week, leaving at least 172 people dead and wreaking havoc at some of its most famous landmarks.

The men are not true followers of the Islamic faith, according to the influential Muslim Jama Masjid Trust, which runs the 7.5-acre (three-hectare) Badakabrastan graveyard in downtown Mumbai.

"People who committed this heinous crime cannot be called Muslim," said Hanif Nalkhande, a trustee. "Islam does not permit this sort of barbaric crime."

Webmaster's Commentary:

The red cord around the wrist identified them as Hindus anyway.

The misplaced hype about Faridkot

As Mumbai struggles to return to normalcy in the wake of terrorist attacks, a Pakistani village named Faridkot is being mentioned in the Indian media as the place of origin of the lone gunman arrested by Indian commandos. He has been identified as Ajmal Amir Kasab.

The media, however, conveniently avoids mentioning that there is also a town with the same name in the Indian state of Punjab.

Mumbai attacks - city fears five terrorists are 'missing'

At least five terrorist gunmen have evaded capture in Mumbai and could make a secondary strike on India's financial capital, it was feared this morning.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Remember the reports of blond-haired white guys doing the shooting? They probably walked out of the hotels pretending to be hostages.

The Fall of the House of Nariman.

Am I premature in assuming that, once again, Israel was deep in the fell doings of one more outrage against the human estate? It seems not and ‘seems’ is the problem. It doesn’t matter how clearly something seems to be, because it seems that few are going to hear about it.

What’s this thing in Mumbai about? I think it’s two things. The first thing is obvious. Someone wants Pakistan and India at each others throats for the purpose of subduing Pakistan and India after that. Someone wants to energize the right wing in India and turn the mind of the Indian people to thoughts of a greater police presence in the hope of a more uniform security. It’s more complex than this and, of course, the money and power thing is always there. The other thing is…

A lot of time has gone by since 9/11 without any real terrorism to talk about and, except for 9/11, the terrorism has always been small potatoes or not terrorism at all but just people who aren’t inclined to bend over for the invaders, as is the case in Afghanistan and Iraq. So… what they needed was a systematic and very well organized event to show the world that, “Yes, there are some serious terrorists out there and if they can do this, then just imagine what they can do later if we don’t stop them. The point was to show that quite possibly this sort of organized mayhem could be brewing anywhere and we have all got to join together to stop it and then, after that, we are going to have to lock up just about everyone, except for the ones we kill, because you just never know who’s doing what. You might be a terrorist. You just don’t know it yet but… you’ll have to take our word for it.”

Now, arrested terrorist Ajmal says 'kill me'

Step 1: Get patsy to name designated target (in this case Pakistan)

Step 2: "Suicide" patsy.

Signs Of An Attempted Coup In New Delhi

Observers are already seeing how the hawks within the Indian establishment and Hindu militant organizations have seized the initiative from a paralyzed government. The Indian army and intelligence are already penetrated. Now the real culprits are channeling the fears of a traumatized people toward Pakistan.

Some Israelis in Mumbai remain unaccounted for

Amir Kasab, 21, told investigators that this was why they targeted the Chabad House, also known as the Nariman House in Mumbai, an outreach center meant for local Jews and Jews touring India, including Israelis. Sources said Kasab's colleagues killed in the operation had stayed at the Nariman House in the past.

"They have stayed in Nariman house on rental basis identifying themselves as Malaysian students.'' said a source. Police were trying to determine why Nariman House rooms were given to non-Jews, the Times of India reported.

Indian Police discover RSS Hindu Terror Cell which was pretending to be Muslim?s

Just like the Neocon/Zionists, the RSS are staging acts of terrorism and putting the blame on muslims. However, unlike the Neocon/Zionists, the RSS terrorists have been exposed by some honest elements whithin the Indian police.

Pakistan briefs Turkey over Pakistan-India ties after Mumbai attacks

Pakistani troops and Air Force have been put on high alert in the face of "escalation" by India on the eastern border and the forces deployed on the western frontier could also be pulled back, according to local press reports Sunday.

Leaders in Pakistan have condemned the Mumbai attacks and pledged action against any group found to be involved, saying that any increase in Pakistan-India tensions would be a victory for the extremists.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Pakistan is "circling the wagons" right now, in anticipation of being blamed for the Mumbai attacks, and what the aftermath of that blame may bring.

Let us hope that there is an "adult in the room", geopolitically, (and that adult may well be Vladimir Putin) urging calm, and trying to restore frayed trust on both sides, which can cool this situation down.

The alternative possibility is unthinkable, but predictable, if this blame game plays out its course as it appears to be doing now.

And who benefits? Not the Pakistani or Indian people, that's for certain.

China official daily says don’t rule out Hindu radicals

The Chinese Communist party’s mouthpiece — the People’s Daily — has carried a news article, indicating involvement of Hindu radicals in the Mumbai Terror attacks. The article has based its argument on a “red thread” worn by the attackers on their wrists.

Mumbai Massacre: Is 'India's 9/11' another false flag event?

While American TV News is calling the terrorism in Mumbia "India's 9/11" and blaming radical Islamic terrorists as the culprits, some foreign news is beginning to trickle in with a different story: that perhaps the real culprits behind the terrorism where in fact Hindu and white extremists pretending to be Muslims, a classic false flag tactic.

Mumbai attacks: Seven terrorists were British, claims Indian government

SEVEN of the Mumbai terrorists were British Pakistanis, Indian government sources claimed last night.

Insiders said two Brits had been arrested and another five suspects were from the UK.

Brown trying to deny British were among the terrorists


When bombs go off in India there is a tendency to blame Moslems.

However, the evidence points to the terror being the work of people within the Indian military, the Hindu fascist movement, and the CIA and its friends.

Mumbai attacks: India raises security footing to 'war level'

India will increase security in the country and on its borders to a "war level" in the wake of the deadly attacks in Mumbai that have been blamed on militants linked to Pakistan, a government minister said.

FLASHBACK: Did Mossad attempt to infiltrate Islamic radical outfits in south Asia?

Indian intelligence officials, too, were surprised by the nationality profile of the eleven. "They are surely Muslims; they say that they have been on tabligh (preaching Islam) in India for two months. But they are Israeli nationals from the West Bank," said a Central Intelligence official.

Mumbai attack: Was Nariman House the terror hub?

Virendra Ghunawat, a television journalist who has been tracking the Nariman House shootout since the time it took place Wednesday night, said even the cops have been cagey about details.

"Today, during one of the shootout exchanges, the cops managed to rescue a six year old girl and her mother. We know of a man who is critically injured and requires urgent medical help. A couple is also holed up inside apart from the militants", a senior police official said, who did not wish to be quoted.


FLASHBACK: Shock as top Indian Army officer arrested over bomb attack

The Indian Army has been shocked by the arrest of a senior Military Intelligence officer on suspicion of involvement in a bomb attack by Hindu extremists in western India in September.

Colonel Srikant Prasad Purohit is the first serving officer in India's Army — seen as a bastion of secularism since the country's independence in 1947 — to be arrested on terrorism charges.

His detention is prompting calls for a ban on Hindu nationalist groups accused of stirring political violence, including recent attacks on Christians in eastern India, before national elections next year.

Pakistan U-turns on sending spy chief to India

Pakistan on Saturday withdrew an offer to send its spy chief to India to help investigate the Mumbai terrorist attacks, damaging efforts to head off a crisis between the nuclear-armed rivals.

Mumbai attack is over, all militants dead: city police chief

Indian commandos have killed the last Islamic militants holed up inside Mumbai's Taj Mahal hotel, ending the more than two-day assault on India's financial capital, the city's police chief told AFP.

"All (combat) operations are over. All the terrorists have been killed," Mumbai police commissioner Hassan Gafoor said, 59 hours after the attacks began.

Webmaster's Commentary:

We know from the next story down that at least one of the terrorists is indeed still alive in captivity. We also know, because of the reported purchases of large quantities of alcohol, that the attackers were NOT followers of Islam!

Terrorists used hijacked vessel

Even as special forces continued to battle the terrorists, investigators have been working to piece together the sequence of events that led up to the massacre that started on Wednesday night.

Based on the continuing interrogation of arrested Lashkar terrorist Ajmal Amir Kamal, investigators believe the 12 terrorists who left Karachi on a merchant ship hijacked a fishing boat to facilitate their final assault on Mumbai.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Note that in this report, the interrogation of Ajmal Amir Kamal is "continuing", meaning he is still alive. Yet in other reports, the Indian government is claiming that all of the terrorists are dead!

Mumbai attack: 'British men among terrorists'

Vilasrao Deshmukh, the chief minister of Mumbai, was reported to have said that two British-born Pakistanis were among eight gunmen seized by Indian commandos who stormed buildings to free hostages.

Webmaster's Commentary:

This is now being denied.

Indians claim terrorists took orders from Pakistan

THE Indian authorities yesterday claimed to have proof that the Mumbai terrorists were receiving instructions from Pakistan and discussing tactics with their handlers during the three days of attacks in which they killed at least 195 people.

It has also emerged that India had been warned that terrorists were planning an attack in Mumbai.

RR Patil, the deputy chief minister of Mumbai’s state government, said there was “proof” that the terrorists were on the phone to someone in Pakistan during the attack.

Webmaster's Commentary:

What incontrovertible proof does Mumbai's DPM Patil actually have to present to the world to indicate that the phone calls were definitely going to Pakistan?

Phone call destinations can be "spoofed" to appear to be going somewhere, when - in truth - the phone calls are going somewhere else entirely. How can he be so absolutely certain this was not the case here??

And if, in fact, India had been warned ".....that terrorists were planning an attack in Mumbai.", why was there no stepped up security, particularly in "soft targets"? like the major foreign hotels where foreigners gather?

Also, it appeared that the terrorists were very familiar with the layouts of the places they attacked. Why the Sam Hill didn't Indian security forces have electronic "as-builts" on these buildings , so that they could potentially save both time, getting to where they needed to be, and people's lives??

This is something which makes absolutely no sense, particularly if there were credible warnings of some kind of an attack.

'Pak may relocate 100,000 army personnel to border'

Pakistan may relocate around 100,000 military personnel from its restive border area with Afghanistan if there is an escalation in tension with India,which has hinted at the involvement of Pakistani elements in the Mumbai carnage, a media report said today.

"These sources have said NATO and the US command have been told that Pakistan would not be able to concentrate on the war on terror and against militants around the Afghanistan border as defending its borders with India was far more important," Geo News quoted senior Pakistani journalist Hamid Mir as saying.

Webmaster's Commentary:

If true, this is hugely serious Pakistani warning to the US, NATO, and India about what will happen if they decide to blame Pakistan for the Mumbai attacks.

India uncovers Hindu terror group that carried out bombings blamed on Islamists

India is in something of a state of shock after learning from official sources that its first Hindu terror cell may have carried out a series of deadly bombings that were initially blamed on militant Muslims. The revelation is forcing the country to consider some difficult questions.

Mumbai terrorists had been staying at the Jewish Centre (Nariman House) in a guest house for 2 weeks prior to the attacks

In a telephone interview with CBC News from outside the centre, freelance journalist Arun Asthhana said there are reports that some of the militants had stayed at a guest house there for up to 15 days before the attacks.

"They had a huge mass of ammunition, arms and food there," Asthhana said.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Did Israel double-cross their own Sayan to create a bloody shirt to wave?

U.S. Intelligence Focuses In On Pakistani Group

American intelligence and counterterrorism officials said Friday that there was mounting evidence that a Pakistani militant group based in Kashmir, most likely Lashkar-e-Taiba, was responsible for this week’s deadly attacks in Mumbai.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Okay, so that means those guys are actually innocent and we can move on.

Mumbai: Armed Police Would Not Fire Back

The gunmen were terrifyingly professional, making sure at least one of them was able to fire their rifle while the other reloaded. By the time he managed to capture the killer on camera, Mr D'Souza had already seen two gunmen calmly stroll across the station concourse shooting both civilians and policemen, many of whom, he said, were armed but did not fire back. "I first saw the gunmen outside the station," Mr D'Souza said. "With their rucksacks and Western clothes they looked like backpackers, not terrorists, but they were very heavily armed and clearly knew how to use their rifles.

Many more questions about the terror attacks

If some of the terrorists had registered at the hotels earlier, could these men/women have left along with the guests who were released? Did the police record the identities and addresses of the guests who were released from both hotels?


According to an exposé in a national daily published from Madhya Pradesh and several other cities, in the aftermath of the arrests of Sadhu, Sadhvi, and other extremist Hindutvadis as involved in the Malegaon bomb blast, Intelligence agencies are now concentrating on foreign connections of the radical Hindutvadis.
