Report: Al Qaeda Trained Mumbai Attackers

Apparently, the attack would have been a lot a lot worse, my gawd.

Had all the 25 militants completed the training and made it to Mumbai the carnage would have been much worse," a senior Indian official told the Deccan Chronicle.

Sayed Zabiuddin Ansari, the alleged facilitator of the 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai, has proven to be a "treasure trove of information" for Indian investigators, according to new reports in the Indian press. Ansari has reportedly revealed that al Qaeda was tasked with training the Mumbai attackers in a Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) training camp close to the Pakistan-Iran border.

It is not entirely clear where the camp was located, as Ansari has been unable to pinpoint its location for investigators. But according to at least one article, the LeT camp was inside Afghanistan. LeT terrorists are known to operate in both Pakistan and Afghanistan.

Ansari (a.k.a. Abu Jundal) was captured inside Saudi Arabia and then transferred to Indian custody in June. [See LWJ report, Key Mumbai plotter arrested in Saudi Arabia.]

You can also add Pakistan's ISI's cooperation to the group as I noted in my prior post and further stated in LWJ's article above.

Interestingly, I like to communicate, via Twitter, with terror supporters. He/she/it has this to say about Abu Jundal:

My dua:

May the mujahidiot scream out in pain, continue to sing out like a canary, scream out in pain. Rinse, repeat over and over until they gain all the info he holds. Then spit and p*ss on him.
