Pakistan finds substantial evidence of LET Mumbai plot
Pakistani investigators told India they have found substantial, incriminating evidence that directly connects Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba to November's terrorist attacks in Mumbai.This is encouraging news that suggest a better effort on the part of the Pakistan government than previous reports. In this post based on a NY Times report it appeared the government was looking for excuses not to prosecute the perps. There should be no sympathy for the LET mass murders.
The latest report on Pakistan's investigation, handed to Indian authorities this month, said material recovered from Lashkar camps in Karachi and the southern coastal town of Thatta indicated the terrorists were given training, weapons and direction by the militant outfit. The evidence included handwritten diaries, training manuals, Indian maps and operational instructions, said the report, a copy of which was reviewed by The Wall Street Journal.
"The investigation has established beyond any reasonable doubt that the defunct LeT activists conspired, abetted, planned, financed and established [the] communication network to carry out terror attacks in Mumbai," the report said.
Lashkar-e-Taiba was outlawed by Pakistan in 2002, but it continued to operate under the banner of Jamaat ud Dawa, its purported charity arm.
