Mumbai 27/11 was an Inside Job.

Mumbai rocked by deadly attacks



Gunmen have carried out a series of co-ordinated attacks across the Indian city of Mumbai (Bombay), killing at least 80 people and injuring 200 more.

At least seven high-profile locations were hit in India’s financial capital, including two luxury hotels where hostages were reported to be held.

A fire is sweeping through the Taj Mahal Palace, Mumbai’s most famous hotel, which is now ringed by troops.

Police said four suspected terrorists have been killed and nine arrested.

Flames and black smoke billow from the Taj Mahal Palace hotel, Mumbai

The situation is still confused but the city’s main train station, a hospital, a restaurant and two hotels – locations used by foreigners as well as local businessmen and leaders – are among those places caught up in the violence.

There are reports of gunfire and explosions taking place elsewhere in the city, and reports of a hostage situation at a hospital.

Commandos have now surrounded the two hotels, the Taj Mahal Palace and the Oberoi Trident, where it is believed that the armed men are holding dozens of hostages.

One eyewitness said that the attackers had singled out British and American passport holders.

If this report is true, our security correspondent Frank Gardner says it implies an Islamist motive – attacks inspired or co-ordinated by al-Qaeda.

A claim of responsibility has been made by a previously unknown group calling itself the Deccan Mujahideen.

Our correspondent says it could be a hoax or assumed name for another group.

The motive is far from clear – but the attacks come amid elections in several Indian states, including in disputed Kashmir.

In the latest developments:

• Fire crews have been evacuating people from the upper floors of the Taj Mahal Palace, from where flames and smoke could be seen billowing

• The head of Mumbai’s anti-terrorism unit and two other senior officers are among those killed, officials say

• The White House holds a meeting of top intelligence and counter-terrorism officials, and pledges to help the Indian government.

Gunmen opened fire at about 2300 local time (1730 GMT) at the sites in southern Mumbai.

Mumbai journalist: “Gunmen were looking for Westerners”

“The terrorists have used automatic weapons and in some places grenades have been lobbed,” said AN Roy, police commissioner of Maharashtra state.

Local TV images showed blood-splattered streets, bodies being taken into ambulances and dramatic shots of what appeared to explosions and fire inside the Taj Mahal hotel.

One eyewitness told the BBC he had seen a gunman opening fire in the Taj Mahal’s lobby.

He said he had seen people fall before he fled the lobby.

“All I saw was one man on foot carrying a machine gun type of weapon – which I then saw him firing from and I saw people hitting the floor, people right next to me,” he said.

International reaction
There has been a wave of bombings in Indian cities in recent months which has left scores of people dead.

Most of the attacks have been blamed on Muslim militants, although police have also arrested suspected Hindu extremists.

Mumbai itself has also been attacked in the past: in July 2006 a series of bomb attacks on busy commuter trains killed almost 190 people and injured more than 700.

Police accused Pakistan’s intelligence agency of planning those attacks,
which they said were carried out by an Islamist militant group, Lashkar-e-Toiba.

Pakistan rejected the allegation, saying there was no evidence that its intelligence staff were involved.

But the latest shootings come at a time when ties between India and Pakistan have improved.

Just days ago Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari told a summit in Delhi that Pakistan would not be first to carry out a missile strike on India.

The two countries have a joint anti-terror mechanism whereby they are supposed to share information on terrorist attacks.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/7751160.stm

As soon as you hear “Al Qaeda”, then you know that the attack is another operation. Consider the fact that westerners were targeted in this attack. When the story hits the news, what is more likely to effect the hearts of the public? Indian casualties or American/British casualties? This is a multinational, GlobIntel attack.. Just like 9-11, 7-7, Bhutto, etc.

What is the purpose? This quote from the article gives it away: “Police accused Pakistan’s intelligence agency of planning those attacks”. This is reinforced by the fact that the 1993 attack they keep mentioning was carried out by an organized crime syndicate that was led by an =ISI asset. The ISI has been made the prime suspect in this crime. They were, without a doubt, involved, but the agenda here is to make it look as if Pakistan-backed terrorists are behind the attacks. This will serve as a pretext for US incursions into Pakistan.

We know that the agenda is to create pretexts for US incursions into Pakistan. How? The Marriott Hotel Blast. The blast was a failed GlobIntel operation designed to wipe out a large number of civilian/military officials. The following quote from Bloomberg lets us know why the Marriott Hotel Blast happened:

The attack, which killed at least 53 and injured 266 near the capital’s main government buildings, came hours after President Asif Ali Zardari pledged to resist recent incursions into Pakistani territory by U.S. forces in Afghanistan who are battling Pakistan-based Taliban and al-Qaeda guerrillas. http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=206…Qvmg&refer=home

This was the same reason that Bhutto was set up. She was a Harvard-educated member of the elite. She was 100% controlled opposition. Her controllers set her up, though, by having her return to Pakistan, where she was taken out by a professional sniper. This psychological operation achieved the desired effect.. destabilization. That’s the game that is being played.

Well, up until now.

The Bhutto Assassination and the Marriott Hotel Bombing were meant to destabilize Pakistan, so US/NATO forces will have a reason to go into it. This latest attack appears to be an effort to create the impression that now terrorism is not just inside Pakistan, but that it is slipping outside and is a danger to everyone else. Now, of course, the knights in shining armor must ride into Pakistan to fight the terrorism. They’ll be done putting it down in, say, maybe 10 years.. or maybe 50. Make it 100. How’a’bout ‘Never’?

With the Marriott Hotel Bombing, Bhutto Assassination, and India Attack, we are seeing “Northwoods 2008: Target Pakistan” playing out in front of our eyes. Of course, one of the agencies assisting in this game-plan is none other than Pakistan’s own ISI. Welcome to the real world, Joebob. No, you can’t stay asleep for five more minutes.

Navy boarding suspicious ship off Mumbai

Nov 27, 2008

MUMBAI, India – The Indian navy says its forces are boarding a cargo vessel suspected of ties to the Mumbai attacks that killed 101 people.

Navy spokesman Capt. Manohar Nambiar said Thursday that the ship, the MV Alpha, had recently come to Mumbai from Karachi, Pakistan.

Nambiar says the navy has “located the ship and now we are in the process of boarding it and searching it.” He gave no other details on the ship.

More than 100 people were killed and 300 injured when suspected Islamic militants attacked 10 sites in Mumbai.

NY warns of possible al Qaeda attack

U.S. authorities have warned of a possible al Qaeda threat to transit systems in and around New York City, a Homeland Security official said on Wednesday.

http://www.reuters.com/article/topNews/idUSTRE4AP5U220081126

New York Alert Based on Possible Al-Qaeda Planning

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the FBI issued a joint warning to state and local officials yesterday about a possible al-Qaeda plot to attack the New York subways, a DHS spokeswoman said.

L.A. tightens security after New York’s terrorism alert

The report of a threat of terrorist violence against the New York transit system has prompted Los Angeles officials to increase security.
http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2008/11/that-report-of.html

The death of India’s Anti-Terror chief is a huge indication that this was a fraud attack. Why? This guy was very skeptical of the “Islamic Terrorism”. So skeptical that his investigations provided a reason for the perps to want him knocked off.

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/India/Is_Purohit_the_man_who_knows_too_much/articleshow/3762368.cms

http://www.indianexpress.com/news/ats-disappointed-over-sadhvi/390911/

It seems the chief was chasing the wrong patsies. Instead of joining in on the “Islamic Terrorism” meme, he was going after “Hindu Terrorists”.

http://www.ndtv.com/convergence/ndtv/story.aspx?id=NEWEN20080074233

You may say “Well, how could the establishment have targeted him in the middle of the raging attack that they created?”. Did you hear how he died? He died from three shots in the chest. This indicates he could have easily been and was probably targeted. One early report said that he could have been shot by the police. The following quote is quite revealing: “His death is likely to affect the probe into the Malegaon blast.”.
http://ibnlive.in.com/news/ats-chief-hemant-karkare-killed–his-last-pics/79133-3.html

What’s going around now is that the gunmen singled out people with American/British passports and specifically targeted westerners. Why, then, are there so few American/British casualties out of the 101 known victims? Looks to me like that story was fabricated to upset people.

This is a 100% fraud attack. Just watch them pin it all on “ISI-backed terrorists” and “Pakistan-tied groups”. Of course, the anti-terror cop who didn’t buy the “Islamic fundamentalism” myth got knocked off in the attack by what was almost certainly a deliberate assassination on the part of authorities.

Here’s the “911” number again:

“MUMBAI, India (Nov. 27) – Indian commandos fought Thursday to wrest control of two luxury hotels and a Jewish center from suspected Muslim militants, a day after a chain of attacks across Mumbai left at least 119 people dead and the city shellshocked.”

http://news.aol.com/article/india-seeks-answers-after-terror-attacks/261363?icid=200100397x1214336480x1200925708

That’s important. Notice that ‘119’ isn’t the actual number. It’s the ‘at least’ number. When the media says ‘at least’, ‘more than’, ‘up to’, etc. they then put one of their numbers next. It’s code.

This big story of the ‘massacre against the ‘west and israel’ hits our faces – in media- on ’27’ 11, ie, 7+2=9/11, and the ‘estimates of victims also pointing to that infamous number.

Clues point to domestic terrorists in India attack

By PAISLEY DODDS – 2 days ago

LONDON (AP) — The attack on India’s financial capital bears all the trademarks of al-Qaida — simultaneous assaults meant to kill scores of Westerners in iconic buildings — but clues so far point to homegrown Indian terrorists, global intelligence officials said Thursday.

Spy agencies around the world were caught off guard by the deadly attack, in which gunmen sprayed crowds with bullets, torched landmark hotels and took dozens of hostages.

“We have been actively monitoring plots in Britain and abroad and there was nothing to indicate something like this was about to happen,” a British security official told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of his work.

Britain is the former colonial power in India and Pakistan and closely monitors terrorist suspects in those countries.

In some ways, the attack illustrated just how fluid terror tactics have become since Sept. 11 — and how the threat has become more global.


The group that claimed responsibility, Deccan Mujahideen, was unknown to global security officials. The name suggested the group was Indian.

One of the suspects reportedly called an Indian television station, speaking the main Pakistani language of Urdu, to demand the return of Muslim lands.


But Ajai Sahni, head of the New Delhi-based Institute for Conflict Management who has close ties to India’s police and intelligence, said the attack was a departure from past assaults waged over Kashmir.

a U.S. counterterrorism official said on condition of anonymity, referring to Pakistani militant groups linked to al-Qaida who have fought Indian troops in Kashmir.

Another British security official told the AP on condition of anonymity…

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh blamed “external forces” but stopped short of blaming Pakistan. Both are nuclear-armed countries.

“This type of terrorism is spreading, through Pakistan and now India, but we were all surprised by such a large-scale attack like this,” said Wajid Hassan, Pakistan’s High Commissioner in London. “This is no coincidence that this type of attack happened so soon after the bombing of the Marriott Hotel. People from all countries are being paid to fight this al-Qaida war. This is a war that goes beyond any nationality.”

“It’s a possibility,” Sahni said. “When we say Mumbai underworld we’re talking of Dawood Ibrahim.

Ibrahim is one of India’s most wanted men and also the alleged mastermind behind bombings in Mumbai in 1993 that killed 257 people. He has reportedly fled Mumbai, and police now believe he lives in Pakistan. Pakistani officials have denied this.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dawood_Ibrahim

Let’s dig through this article, written by a reporter for the CFR-controlled Associated Press.

-The report states that the attack bears all of the hallmarks of Al-CIAda. This is false.

-This report says that ‘scores of westerners’ were targeted, despite the fact that only a few westerners were among the casualties.

-Anonymous British spooks have been ‘informing’ AP about the attack.

-Britain has been ‘closely monitoring’ terrorism in India.

-The attack has ‘illustrated’ the threat of global terrorism.

-Pakistan’s High Commissioner in London believes there is a link between the Marriott blast and the India attack (No shit!).

-A number of ‘clues’ point to Pakistan (Will this attack be the one that brings in the US/NATO crew?)

This article confirms an MI6 role in the attack. Britain is part of the G8, it has been ‘closely monitoring’ terrorism in both India and Pakistan, and anonymous British spooks have been providing AP with their information.

Britain says no evidence so far to suggest India attackers were British citizens

Earlier reports alleged at least one of the gunmen could have been a British-born Pakistani. But a Foreign Office spokeswoman, who spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to speak to the press, said none of the attackers identified so far was British.

http://www.startribune.com/world/35213559.html?elr=KArks:DCiUBcy7hUiD3aPc:_Yyc:aUU

1. One of them was reported to be British-born, huh? The MI6 role is looking more and more probable.

2. A government spokeswoman with no name/face. That’s someone we can trust.

3. Why isn’t she authorized to speak to the press?

4. ‘So far’? Doesn’t sound very conclusive to me.

Then again, this might be a trap. “British-born Pakistani” may have us jump and say “I wonder if this raises the possibility of an MI6 link?!” before spreading it to people who will not focus on “British-born” but rather on “Pakistani”. The perps are known to hide disinformation inside what appear to be revelations. For an example of this, see the ISI-Atta $100,000 story.

Bush Assures Help to India After Terrorist Attack

President Bush called Prime Minister Manmohan Singh of India Sunday morning to express solidarity and offer condolences over the deadly terrorist attacks in Mumbia, a White House spokesman said.

Noting that American citizens were also killed, Bush told Singh that he would be working with the international community to provide all the necessary help in the investigation of the attacks, White House spokesman Gordon Johndroe said.

The attacks, which killed at least 174 people, including 18 foreigners, in India’s financial capital, ended Saturday when commandos killed the last three gunmen inside a luxury hotel.

Bush told Singh that he has directed the State and Defense Departments along with other federal agencies to devote the necessary resources and personnel to the situation, Johndroe said.

Bush told Singh he believes this tragedy can create an opportunity “to hold these extremists accountable and demonstrate the world’s shared commitment to combat terrorism,” Johndroe said.

FBI agents arrived in India on Sunday. A second group of investigators was on alert to join the first team if necessary. The State Department warned U.S. citizens still in the city that their lives remain at risk.

On Saturday, Bush pledged full U.S. support to India in a brief statement at the White House after returning from the Camp David presidential retreat where he spent Thanksgiving and monitored the rampage. Bush said the killers “will not have the final word.”

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2008/11/30/bush-assures-help-india/

Wuh-oh! FBI spooks have arrived to help ‘investigate’ the attack. Not good. The killers “won’t have the final word”, huh? Sounds like the US is gearing up for war. Target? Pakistan. Watch as the heroic FBI, working with Indian authorities, ‘uncovers’ Pakistani links to the attacks.

It’s very revealing that Bush told Singh that the attack ‘creates an opportunity’ to ‘demonstrate’ the ‘world’s shared committment’ in the “War on Terror”. That remark just stunk up the room.

Bush Pledges Aid to India After ‘Violent, Brutal’ Mumbai Attack

By Roger Runningen

Nov. 30 (Bloomberg) — President George W. Bush pledged full U.S. support to India after the 60-hour siege of Mumbai killed hundreds, including at least six Americans, in the bloodiest assault in the South Asian nation in 15 years.

“The killers who struck this week are brutal and violent, but terror will not have the final word,” Bush said yesterday as returned to the White House after spending Thanksgiving at Camp David in Maryland. India “can count on the world’s oldest democracy to stand by their side.”

The president conferred on the attacks with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and his national security advisers in a secure video conference at Camp David, White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said. U.S. Ambassador to India David Mulford in New Delhi also participated in the 7:30 a.m. Washington time call.

At least 195 people died in the attacks on the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower and Oberoi-Trident hotels, a Jewish center, a railway station and a restaurant, said S Jadhav, an official at the Mumbai’s disaster management unit. More than 295 people were injured in attacks that ended early yesterday, Mumbai time.

Six Americans died in the carnage, and an unknown number are missing, Mulford said. India, with 1 billion people, is the world’s largest democracy.

“We pledge the full support of the United States as India investigates these attacks, brings the guilty to justice and sustains its democratic way of life,” Bush said in a statement on the South Lawn of the White House.

Bush on Oct. 8 enacted a law that lets U.S. companies such as General Electric Co. sell atomic fuel and technology to India’s burgeoning energy sector for the first time in three decades. The U.S.-India Civil Nuclear Cooperation Agreement lifts a ban on supplying fuel to the world’s largest democracy, imposed after India tested an atomic bomb 34 years ago.

Bush, Obama Contacts

Throughout the siege, the president said he was in contact with President-elect Barack Obama to share information on developments in Mumbai, as U.S. authorities worked “to ensure that American citizens in India are safe.”

Obama called Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh late Nov. 28 to offer condolences. “He told the prime minister that there is one president at a time, but that he would be monitoring the situation closely,” said Nick Shapiro, an Obama spokesman, in an e-mailed statement.

Bush said Indians are “resilient” and “strong,” and have built a multiethnic democracy that “can withstand this trial.” Mumbai, the financial capital, will bounce back and “continue to be the center of commerce and prosperity.”

Improved Ties

Nuclear-armed India and Pakistan have sought improved relations since 2003, a year after they came close to fighting a fourth war since the countries were formed. The two countries are in talks on issues including control of the disputed Himalayan territory of Kashmir, commercial cooperation, terrorism and drug trafficking.

Bush made no comment on whether the U.S. was concerned about the potential for increased tensions between the two nuclear-armed South-Asian neighbors, nor did he elaborate about the kind of the U.S. may be offering.

Perino said in response to a question that she couldn’t be specific about whether the FBI is helping authorities in India with the investigation. “We’ve offered assistance, and that’s all we can say for now,” she said in an e-mail.

“As the people from the world’s largest democracy recover from these attacks, they can count on the world’s oldest democracy to stand by their side,” the president said.

While more than 300 people have died in attacks on Indian markets, mosques and theaters this year, the indiscriminate killing of businessmen and tourists in five-star hotels marks an escalation in the country’s fight again Islamic extremism. Singh will convene an all-party meeting today to seek support for a nationwide agency mirroring the Federal Bureau of Investigation to probe terror-related attacks.
http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=a_DYUprPgbRE&refer=home

Looks like the FBI is tight-lipped about their role in the investigation. I wonder why that is. rolleyes.gif

It’s interesting that a US-India policy that has gone unchanged for 30 years involving the energy cartel changed a month before the attack happened. Anyone else find that to be a little too coincidental?
