India: ISI behind Mumbai bomb

Accusations against Pakistan's intelligence agency ISI just reached a new level:
Police in Mumbai, India's financial hub, said on Saturday they had cracked the July 11 serial train blasts case and found evidence that Pakistan-based Islamist militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba was behind it.

"We have solved the July 11 bombings case. The whole attack was planned by Pakistan's ISI and carried out by Lashkar-e-Taiba and their operatives in India," A.N. Roy, Mumbai's police chief, told a news conference.

ISI or Inter-Services Intelligence agency is Pakistan's military spy agency. The bombing of rush-hour commuter trains and stations killed 186 people and wounded hundreds.
Cue more Musharraf denials.

Next time there's an earthquake or other disaster in Pakistan, I recommend we pour a drink and put on a favourite dvd and relax.

If they're so good with bombs, they can probably deal with their own natural disasters. And we don't want British dogs going out to rescue mohammedans anyway as the poor things have to go through six months' quarantine when they get home.

I understand Musharraf is over here promoting his book. He perhasp needs some money outside the country when he has to make a run for it. Perhaps Pakistan is close to collapse. What happens to the Nuclear weopons if it does ?

man in a shed says "He perhasp needs some money outside the country". Oh, please! You think he hasn't been amassing money outside the country for the last 20 years? And planning a bolt hole? You think he wants to spend the rest of his life in Islamabad? I don't get the feeling he's that crazy.

why doesnt this surprise me?

remember the $500,000 supposedly wired to Mohammed Atta by the ISI?
however, i dont think that Musaharaf is behind it - its more that an Islamist infiltration of the ISI that is the problem.

I think this is actually very serious and can be a "causus belli" for India v. Pakistan. The fact that Musharrif has given up parts of the North of Pakistan to Taliban controlled elements and now this. Not good. I hope (although it is probably not practical) that there is some way for western powers or India to somehow take control of Pakisani nukes if situation degenerates further.

felix - If India does not have contingency plans, I would be astonished.

If this proves true, can we expect a "proportionate" response from India? And what would a "disproportionate" response comprise? I hope Cameron is standing by to criticise India: after all India happens to be the only democracy between Tel Aviv and Tokyo
