At the trial defense attorneys chipped away at Headley’s credibility, portraying him as a manipulator and habitual liar. Jurors’ decision not to convict Rana on all counts could suggest they weren’t fully convinced by Headley.

Rana’s trial in 2011 came just weeks after Navy SEALs found Osama bin Laden hiding in Pakistan. Some observers expected testimony could reveal details about alleged links between ISI and Lashkar-e-Taiba. In the end, though, much that came out in testimony had been heard before through indictments and a report released by India’s government.

The Pakistani government has maintained it did not know about bin Laden or help plan the Mumbai attacks.
