The Case of the Telltale Hoax

Who was behind the Mumbai massacre?

By Justin Raimondo

"......It's simple, really: the idea of making such a threat in such a manner would be to demonstrate the terrorists' knowledge of presidential procedures. As for how they got the code-words and the know-how, I'm not going down that road, at least not in this column. That aside, however, note the pattern: a spectacular terrorist attack followed by a threatening call out of the blue – the 9/11 signature.

Although Osama bin Laden and his gang would certainly benefit from a Pakistan-India clash, there is hardly enough evidence to point to al-Qaeda as the provocateur. All I'm saying, at this juncture, is that this points to some interested third party as the probable culprit: i.e., it wasn't the Pakistani government, which is being blamed by India and much of the world's media, as the hidden hand behind the slaughter........"
