via Flickr’s Apoorva GuptayLove | Peace India’s report on its interrogation of US, probable double agent, convicted planner of the deadly 2008 Mumbai attacks David Headley says that Pakistan’s intelligence agency was deeply involved in planning the attacks and even funded reconnaissance about the planned terrorist operation.

The 2008 attack, blamed on the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba group, killed 166 people and paralyzed India’s business capital. Equally important, the attack broadcast live globally froze peace efforts between Pakistan and India.

AP obtained a copy of the report, which alleges that, “according to Headley, every big action of LeT is done in close coordination with ISI, using a common abbreviation for Lashkar-e-Taiba.”

In 34 hours of interrogation from June 3 to June 9, Headley described for Indian officials a Lashkar-e-Taiba organization that was filled with former Pakistani army officers and veterans from the conflicts with India over Kashmir, the report said. via CBS News

Pakistan calls the charges baseless.
