The bastards cheered

January 7, 2009

From The Long War Journal, transcripts of phone conversations between the Mumbai terrorists and their handlers in Pakistan:

The Pakistan-based handlers of the Mumbai terrorists ordered the murders of civilians over the phone and cheered after hearing the gunfire, according to the dossier of evidence India provided to the Pakistani government.

The documents, obtained by the Indian newspaper The Hindu, provides a cold, calculating, and chilling look at the masterminds behind the late November military-style assault on the Indian financial capital of Mumbai. More than 170 people were killed and hundreds wounded during the 60 hour terror spree that shut down the city. The Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistan-based terror group allied with al Qaeda and supported by powerful elements within Pakistan’s Inter-Service Intelligence agency and the military, carried out the attack.

Six Pakistani handlers monitored the news coverage from Mumbai and kept in constant touch with the terrorists holed up in Nariman House and the Taj Mahal and Trident hotels during the three day siege. The handlers are identified as Zarar, Kafa, Wassi, Jundal, Bururg, and “Major General.”

The last is strong evidence of Pakistani military or intelligence involvement in the attack: as Bill Roggio reports, the rank of Major General is held by Army corps commanders and the head of their Inter-Service Intelligence agency.

Read the whole thing: I’m not sure if "chilling" or "infuriating" best describe it. If you don’t, however, bear in mind what one of the handlers in Pakistan told his creature:

"Your work is very important," the handler said. "Allah is helping you…."

Tell me again this isn’t a religious war? Waiting



Rearranging the deck chairs

I’ve made some changes to the sidebar at the left, adding a headlines widget for Newsbusters and arranging it with the widgets for Little Green Footballs and the WSJ Opinion Journal so that they’re all in a  group. And, there might be more remodeling in the days to come.

I know. I’m excited, too. Big Grin

The latest from The Long War Journal as Israel considers expanding operations in Gaza’s south as it engages in urban combat in the north.

One bit of good news: Ayman Siam, founder of Hamas’ rocket program, has been sent to meet his 72 virgin goats courtesy of the IDF and Shin Bet.

Loser. Loser

The 40 most obnoxious quotes of 2008

January 7, 2009

Over at Right Wing News. One of my favorites is number ten, from literary giant and sweet voice of reason Erica Jong:

"If Obama loses it will spark the second American Civil War. Blood will run in the streets, believe me. And it’s not a coincidence that President Bush recalled soldiers from Iraq for Dick Cheney to lead against American citizens in the streets."

Actually, Dick does kind of have that "barbarian warlord look" to him….
