Why not a case in Indian court for damages against FBI/CIA

Would Arnab Goswami Dare a debate on the Issue

West Stirred-up Muslims Terrorize Mumbai
by K. Gajendra Singh 12 December, 2008                                 

Slowly like peeling layers of an onion, the truth about 2611 came out, that, apart from Pakistan behind the terrorist /predators, the role of US intelligence services also became crystal clear. Washington was fully complicit in abetting and assisting the 2611 attack and should be held accountable in law.


It should be clear to anyone with an iota of intelligence that most of the military hard ware and other necessary materials for war by US and other allied forces in Afghanistan are unloaded at the Karachi seaport and then sent by road. The port of Karachi is therefore brimming over with US agents keeping a watch on those interested in sabotaging the transfer of the material. The dress rehearsal exercises for the 10 (!) Pakistani terrorists to take off from Karachi and then land in Mumbai after a long sea voyage could not have escaped the eyes and ears of CIA and other Western intelligence agencies. In any case the existence of a full US surveillance system has been exposed by Snowden, which was in place before 2008, with complete command over communications over the Indian Ocean by other means of communication .Thus it was well nigh impossible that US agencies did not know the departure of the 10 terrorists and their voyage right up to Mumbai


Since then much information did seep out especially about US- Pakistan- double agent David Headley who was regularly debriefed by US agencies with a watch on his movements. His wives had told US intelligence agency in Pakistan in great details what David Headley was up to, including his visits to Mumbai and taking photographs of Taj Hotel and other targets Even if the US State department did not know the US head of intelligence would have surmised that David had laid the ground work for the Pakistani ISI and what other agents were up to.


When the cover of David Headley was made public, absolutely public, Washington resorted to statements that they had given warnings to the govt of India which were not heeded. This is a doublespeak because vague warnings were given when US agents knew the exact truth about what was being planned and would happen. A feckless defensive and incompetent Indian government even silenced the Home Secretary Pillai who made some statements about this disinformation propagated by the US government. To keep his mouth shut he has probably been given a job in the government of India.


In between and since then there have been a number of disclosures in newspaper articles in print and online which clearly establish the knowledge about 2611 available with the US government and finally a book under siege with the headline and conclusion by the authors that Washington sacrificed the Metropolitan commercial and cultural centre of Mumbai to save its agent who was trying to make an entry into Al Qaeda.


The comprehensive version of 26/11 is available in The Siege: 68 Hours Inside the Taj Hotel by  distinguished authors Cathy Scott-Clark and Adrian Levy , well-respected names in South Asia with remarkable books like Deception: Pakistan, the United States and the Global Nuclear Weapons Conspiracy to their credit. Scott-Clark and Levy travelled to 15 countries on four continents and interviewed hundreds of sources, witnesses and people, including the parents of Pakistani jihadis who landed in south Mumbai to attack the city.


A newspaper report rightly suspected that US watched and allowed the attack to take place hoping that two nuclear power neighbors would go on to war and as usual the Anglo Americans  would have fun .West also encouraged and promoted Iraq- Iran war in 1980s. US ambassador April Gailspie told Iraqi Pres Saddam Hussein a few days before he invaded Kuwait on 2nd August in 1990, that his dispute with Kuwait was a bilateral matter. Washington also showed doctored aerial photos of Iraqi forces bordering Saudi Arabia in offensive mode when it was actually in defensive mode. Even before the Saudis had said yes, the US forces were already in the air to finally attack and remove Saddam's forces from Kuwait and station their troops in the region including Saudi Arabia, a Haram in the eyes of the Muslims.


It has also been surmised that on back channels agreement had been reached between India and Pakistan to lessen tensions and general outlines of agreement on various problems .This suits neither the Western powers led by Washington nor its aid dependent Pak armed forces.


A case has been filed in the US Court demanding damage of huge amount against ISI for its role in 2611. A UK citizen has even filed a case against Taj Mahal Hotel in Mumbai for damages.


 Why should a patriotic and nationalistic Indian lawyer not file a PIL or those who suffered directly or indirectly from 2611 attack file a case for damages done to the city of Mumbai or to those who lost their lives and property directly or indirectly.



I'm not a lawyer but I entreat all readers of this article that if they know any lawyer with any sense of patriotism  and nationalism, that a PIL must be filed to get information from the government of India for Indian victims of 26/11 Mumbai attacks


A British man paralyzed during the deadly Mumbai terror attacks in 2008 is suing the owners of the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, alleging that they did not properly secure the building despite warnings that an attack was imminent.


Lawyers for Will Pike said today that they are bringing a civil claim for damages at London's High Court against the Indian Hotels Company Ltd, part of Indian conglomerate Tata Group.

The century-old luxury hotel was a key site during the days-long assault on Mumbai landmarks, which began five years ago Tuesday and left more than 160 people dead. Hundreds of guests were staying at the hotel when gunmen entered, spraying gunfire and setting rooms ablaze.

Pike's lawyer said that in a 2008 CNN interview, the then-chairman of the Tata Group confirmed that the hotel had been warned.


"Clear warnings were received by the hotel that an attack was being conceived and they were a target," said Russell Levy. "Despite that they did not put in security measures that would have made the terrorists choose a different target, or prevent them from being able to mount the attack in the way they did."


Levy said Pike, 33, was spending the last night of a holiday in India with his girlfriend at the hotel on Nov 26, 2008 when they heard gunfire from other rooms and saw smoke coming out from the floor below.


The pair sought to escape through the window by climbing down knotted bedding and curtains, but Pike fell to the ground from the third floor and became paralyzed.


PM Narendra Modi faces US civil case over Gujarat riots

A US court has ordered Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to answer allegations that he failed to stop anti-Muslim rioting when he was chief minister of Gujarat state, overshadowing his first trip to the United States as his country's leader.


The civil case before a New York court seeks compensatory and punitive damages from Modi for crimes against humanity and extrajudicial killings under the Alien Tort Claims Act and the Torture Victim Protection Act. Modi has 21 days to respond.


The petitioner in the case is the American Justice Center, a non-profit human rights organization, acting on behalf of two survivors of the 2002 riots in the western Indian state.


"There is evidence to support the conclusion that minister Modi committed both acts of intentional and malicious direction to authorities in India to kill and maim innocent persons of the Muslim faith," the petition said.
