Was Mumbai massacre suspect a double agent?

By Incorrect Author 17 December 2009

Indian officials have said they are investigating whether  the recently arrested Pakistani-American terror suspect, David Headley, was a “double agent”. Indian officials have apparently questioned Headley’s supposed links to US intelligence agencies – especially now that another suspect accused of involvement in the 2008 Mumbai attacks has been denied bail in the US. These widely-publicised accusations against Headley will probably put pressure on India’s ruling Congress Party and its growing ties with the US as part of its foreign policy. The US has so far not allowed Indian authorities to interrogate Headley over the Mumbai attacks, much to India's consternation. A home ministry official is quoted as saying, “India is looking into whether Headley worked as a double agent. That is one of the many angles we are probing.” For more, read the Christian Science Monitor
