The attack in MUMBIA apparently was committed by “LET” Lashkar-e-Toiba see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lashkar-e-Toiba This is a recognized terrorist organization, see http://www.satp.org/satporgtp/countries/india/states/jandk/terrorist_outfits/lashkar_e_toiba.htm Several “LET” leaders are being held in Guantanamo bay by the U.S. see view “LET” as an affiliate of “AL Queda”. See; http://www.thaindian.com/newsportal/world-news/us-imposes-sanctions-on-four-lashkar-e-toiba-leaders_10053591.html
Law enforcement officials captured only one gunman alive and during interrogation he admitted that he was part of this terrorist organization. see http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/asia/article5248563.ece
As President Elect has stated he will close Guantanamo Bay, the question remains what will we do with all the confirmed terrorists who are being held there? Are they free to join their comrades in jihad against Americans, British, Jews, and the seekers of Liberty? The JDL has some more information on these bastards see http://www.adl.org/terrorism/symbols/lashkaretaiba.asp
Were the attacks on the World Trade Center an act of war? Juxtaposed against that incident what should one classify this week attack in Mumbai.
If this incident had occured in New York, should I read this man his miranda rights?, Should terrorist have all due process of the law and as such ” lawyer up” thwarting the best interest of the nation, and city to determine the nature, scope, personnel, weapons and plans of the group. Or if any other attacks are likely to take place.
This is a scary scary incident, and has the potential for replication. Law enforcement in this nation, state and city must immediately create elite units to combat this blitzkrieg form of terrorism. These police units must be of a commando nature and immediately conduct join training with special forces in the military. We are not prepared to deal with this. We need the best, brightest, in continuous physical training” to cope with future events of this nature and magnitude.
What defines an act of war and if an incident is an act of war should ha beaus corpus and due process of the law apply or do military tribunals have jurisdiction and venue over such acts. I was all for closing down Guantanemo Bay, now this and I wonder.
