Mumbai/Criminal Narcotics Connection

Oh, yah, they're all in this together.

Doug Farah:

...the name of Dawood Ibrahim is now associated with the terrorist attacks in Mumbai.
reportedly provided the initial boat for the attackers, and has strong ties to al Qaeda.

What is interesting about Ibrahim, who has been designated a terrorist by OFAC and many other governments, is that he is a pioneer in the criminal-terrorist nexus. For many years he has provided the criminal links al Qaeda, the Taliban and Pakistani terrorist groups have needed to move money, personnel and equipment. Despite how well known his activities are, he has never been apprehended.

...Ibrahim loves to hang out with movie stars and live the good life. Not exactly a natural ally of radical Islamist groups, but he appears to provide the muscle and know-how to attacks, rather than being the intellectual author of the violence he has pariticpated in. His ideology seems more firmly wedded to his financial well-being than to his religious beliefs

...The Treasury Deparment’s description of Ibrahim says in part that his criminal syndicate “is involved in large-scale shipments of narcotics in the U.K. and Western Europe.

“The syndicate’s smuggling routes from South Asia, the Middle East and Africa are shared with Osama bin Laden and his terrorist network

“Information, from as recent as Fall 2002, indicates that IBRAHIM has financially supported Islamic militant groups working against India, such as Lashkar-e-Tayyiba (LeT).”

The President-elect suggests that 'terrorists should be caught and brought to justice.'

Why not just shoot the bastard on sight and save a lot of money?
