The Chicago Mumbai connection!
Fresh charges against Headley
US charges Chicago man in 2008 Mumbai attack: He also tried to attack the Danish newspaper that published the Muhammed cartoons: Two days ago I republished by coincidence the cartoons of the Islamic Prophet Muhammad published in early October 2005 in a Danish newspaper as they outraged Muslim’s around the world and that was only one of the many things we keep doing to seemingly taunt Islam.
I will not show the cartoons but they seem funny and innocent enough compared to what we see in all our newspapers in regard to our Religious, Political, and world leaders but to Muslim’s real or feigned they are an affront. Therefore if you want to see them you can see them here
I am only mentioning them again here because of the Chicagoan arrested for involvement in the 2008 Mumbai attack in India as you will remember the attack in Mumbai, India that killed 166 people. I am sure I am a bit jaded and naïve even though we have long heard of the active recruitment of American Muslim’s to perform terrorism and have had some mentioned and some are still on the loose.
That said, this is the first I have heard of an American’s involvement of the Mumbai attack! I was focused on Pakistan but now U.S. prosecutors have accused David Headley of performing surveillance between 2006 and 2008 for the Mumbai rampage on hotels and a Jewish center and among those killed were six Americans.
He even took pictures and video of some places hit in the attacks as well as the port where the attackers landed by boat. I know he was born in the US but was raised in Pakistan by his Pakistani Father but I take personal affront as an American with his involvement.
After his trips to India, Headley traveled to Pakistan to turn over the results of his surveillance and, in early 2008, he took boat trips into the Mumbai harbor at the direction of his Lashkar contacts, according to court documents. His Lashkar and connections with a retired Pakistani military officer I find troubling.
As you know, In November 2008, 10 attackers launched their assault on various targets in Mumbai, including several where Headley had conducted surveillance. Targets scouted out by Headley included the Taj Mahal hotel, the Oberoi hotel, the Leopold Cafe, the Nariman House and the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus train station and you know the results.

Of the ten who carried out the attack all but one were killed. The lone survivor should also pay with his life. Headley’s surveillance was integral to the death and terror inflicted in Mumbai. 166 dead and the countless surviving family and friends will be affected for ever. Give him his reward!
