Pakistani from Chicago arrested and charge in Mumbai attacks

An American citizen of Pakistani origin was arrested last month as he attempted to board a flight from Chicago to Philadelphia, and charged with laying the groundwork for the Mumbai terror attacks last November.
David Coleman Headly (49) was arrested last month at Chicago's O'Hare Airport while on his way to Philadelphia, and from there to Pakistan. The American Federal Bureau of Investigations suspected he was involved in a plot to carry out an attack in Denmark following the publication of the controversial Prophet Muhammad caricatures.

A deeper look, however, revealed that he was also involved in the Mumbai attacks in November 2008, in which at least 173 people were killed.

Since Headley's arrest, the US has been investigating his actions along with the Indian authorities. Over the weekend Headley's role became clear: Indian security sources reported that he was the one who scanned the Chabad center for the Pakistani terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba, which is believed to be responsible for the attacks.

Head of the Indian National Investigation Agency (NIA) raided a number of locations in Mumbai on Saturday in search of incriminating evidence against Headley. Indian defense ministry sources told the Chinese news agency Xinhua that its investigators found that Headly had visited all ten locations that were attacked last November.

According to the report, Headley visited the Chabad center in Mumbai in July 2008 – four months before the attack – and presented himself as a Jew in order to stay at the place. Prior to the Chabad center, he stayed at the Taj Mahal Hotel, which was one of the central targets of the terror attack.
But the Obama administration will continue to pretend - as the Bush administration often did - that there is no connection between attacks on Israel and Jews and attacks by Islamist terror groups on the United States and its allies.

What could go wrong?

What's truely telling is that this information was glossed over or completely ignored by all the news outlets. It is not only the failure of the administration to get the connection btwn the murder of Jews and Jihadi threat to America but the news media's as well. However, to acknowledge the overt anti-semitism of Jihadism would interfere with their politically correct version of the world and they would have to acknowledge that they are useful idiots in their own destruction..

The more things change, the more they remain the same. That is true of the US' attitude towards Islam's war against it.
