Yesterday, we spoke with Erick Stakelbeck of CBN during his shoot in Chicago for a story about home grown Jihadi terrorist plotter, Pakistani-born U.S. Citizen David Headley. Headley, who changed his name from Daood Gilani in 2006, and Tahawwur Hussain Rana, 48, a Canadian citizen born in Pakistan were arrested by the FBI in late October for their involvement in the Danish catoon plot. Headley was revealed in a post by colleague Rebecca Bynum to have allegedly 'cased' the Mumbai Chabad center for the Kashmiri terrorists.
Now comes these unfolding revelations from Indian secuity investigations into the whereabouts of Headley during the Mumbai jihadi attacks last November. Apparently, Headley was in Pakistan. Further, Headley and accomplices were also surveilling Indian nuclear installations.
Note this Buzz Express report from India, "Pak ‘hosted’ Headley", November 17th.
NEW DELHI: Investigators have found that terror plotters David Headley and Tahawwur Hussain Rana were in Pakistan when Mumbai was attacked on November 26 last year, raising further suspicion about their possible involvement in the conspiracy. The Union Home Ministry has also issued fresh security alerts for the country’s nuclear installations after it was revealed that Headley had visited some of these places during his stay in India.
Even as Headley’s India network is being probed New Delhi has asked Canada to provide more inputs on Headley's accomplice Rana who is believed to have been in Mumbai just five days before the attack and who, sources said, was suspected to be the man responsible for arranging the finances.
Various teams of the National Investigation Agency are on the Headley-Rana trail all across the country and they continue to question people who came in contact with them. The teams were in Mumbai, Ahmedabad and Kochi as these places were the hub of the duo's activities.
Officials said that film maker Mahesh Bhatt’s son Rahul, a key figure who was in contact with Headley, had been asked not to leave Mumbai till the probe was over.
NUKE PLANTS ON ALERT
An alert for tightening security of nuclear plants was issued after investigators found that Headley possibly visited some states where such facilities are located, like Gujarat, Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh. The six most guarded nuclear plants are Narora in UP, Tarapur in Maharashtra, Kalpakkam in Tamil Nadu, Kakrapar in Gujarat, Kota in Rajasthan and Kaiga in Karnataka.
The Bhabha Atomic Research Centre in Mumbai is on the highest security alert, said sources.
Wouldn't it be interesting if it were to be discovered that this evil man was one of the fiendish handlers remote-controlling, via mobile phone, the jihadist murderers in Mumbai last year, egging them on and gloating over the torturing and the murdering of helpless unarmed captives?
If this *did* turn out to be the case, then I know what I would do to him and his crony. I would hand them over to the Israelis, and I would not counsel clemency.
