I thought it would be in every concerned U.S. citizens (most are more concerned with TMZ) to shine more light on this group. LeT is the new AQ and in fact, they make AQ look pretty fucking weak in comparison. Take a hard look at the dirty underbelly and decide for yourself.
10 LeT Gunmen killed 165 in India. That’s A Good Kill Ratio
You have to respect your enemy and I appreciate LeT’s coordination with regards to Mumbai, and their Kill Rations of 1: 16.5 on target.
If you think Pakistan is a friend in this fight just read the quote below and take a look at who’s in charge. Admittedly we (US) are pretty good at talking out of both sides of our own mouths too. The Pakistan situation is complex and there’s a reason we try and keep them engaged. They’re Nuclear too, after all, and how do you spread a virus? You cough on your associate and let him spread it to all his friends.
“Pakistan arrested Lashkar-e-Taiba’s senior leaders after the Mumbai attacks. But most of them, including Mr Saeed, were later freed on appeal.” -BBC News
Reflection: When was the last time we actually paid a bounty??? I hope Obama is ready to cut a fat check to JSOC’s ST6.
From BBC News
Mr Saeed now heads the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) group, widely seen as a front for LeT – which is blamed for the 2008 Mumbai attacks in India.
In a statement, JuD described the US move as “yet another attack on Islam and Muslims”.
Both JuD and Lashkar-e-Taiba are blacklisted by the US.
The BBC’s Tulip Mazumdar in Islamabad says that despite being on a national “watch-list” in Pakistan, Mr Saeed moves around the country relatively freely.
Mohammed Ajmal Kasab was the only LeT gunmen to survive after the attack on Mumbai.
The US announcement puts Mr Saeed on a par with the Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Omar when it comes to “most wanted terrorists”, our correspondent adds.
Mr Saeed was in Islamabad last week protesting outside parliament – calling for Pakistan to cut all ties with both the US and India.
He has consistently denied any suggestion that either he or JuD – which he says is a charity – have played any role in militant violence.
The Pakistani government has not commented on the US announcement, but it has long argued that it cannot take action against him unless police or the courts formally instigate proceedings.
“It reflects the commitment of India and the United States to bring the perpetrators of the Mumbai terrorist attack to justice”-Indian foreign ministry statement
Pakistan arrested Lashkar-e-Taiba’s senior leaders after the Mumbai attacks. But most of them, including Mr Saeed, were later freed on appeal.
The US has also offered a $2m bounty for Abdul Rehman Makki, Mr Saeed’s brother-in-law and co-founder of Lashkar.
