An American was sentenced on Thursday to 35 years in prison for the key role he played in a 2008 terrorist attack on Mumbai that has been called India's 9/11.
The Obama administration has ordered a review of U.S. intelligence about David Coleman Headley, the Pakistani-American involved in plotting the 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai, to find out whether intelligence agencies failed to share reports that may have helped prevent the attack.
A senior U.S. diplomat says the United States did not have specific information about the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks before they occurred, despite U.S. media reports of warnings from two wives of one of the planners of the attacks.
India has issued arrest warrants for five Pakistani citizens, including two army officers, for alleged involvement in the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.
Headley said the ISI provided individual handlers — many of them senior officers — for all the top members of Lashkar-e-Taiba and gave them directions and money to carry out their reconnaissance of prospective targets, the report states.
He admitted that he had participated in planning the Mumbai attacks with Lashkar-e-Taiba, which the State Department has designated as a foreign terrorist organization.
