David Headley

From Obama With Love

Mar 20, 2010 B. Raman

At least we could have had the courage to protest--loudly and openly--over the American duplicity on Headley instead of projecting every stab in the back by Obama as a kiss in the back.

Focus On Rana

Mar 19, 2010 B. Raman

Now that Headley is out of reach, India should seek access to Tahawwur Hussain Rana, the co-conspirator against whom a separate case has been filed.

The Great Headley Cover Up

Headley will be protected. The FBI will be protected. The US administration will be protected. The Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) will be protected. The Pakistani Government and its Army will be protected...

Headley Chase Contd.

Jan 15, 2010 B. Raman

On at least two occasions Headley appears to have brought a GPS instrument into India and taken it back to Pakistan without being detected by the Indian customs.

Countering Terror

There can be no effective counter-terrorism without effective counter-penetration and counter-sanctuaries techniques and capabilities.

Op Micky Mouse, Redux

B. Raman

Did the arrested Somali who targeted the Danish cartoonist have any contacts with Headley? Did Headley meet him during his two visits to Denmark?

Lessons From Detroit

B. Raman

The foiled December 25 attack by a Nigerian student on the North-West Airlines in Amsterdam has important lessons for the war on terror

But What About Rana?

B. Raman

Headley is an American and an informant of the DEA, but Rana is a Canadian national and the Americans would not have the same qualms about him

21 December, 2009

Get Over It Now

B. Raman

Continued whining about the perceived reluctance of the FBI to co-operate fully on l'affaire Headley is not going to help matters. There is need for joint efforts to prevent future attacks

Sue The MEA

B. Raman

Apart from investigating the circumstances under which the visa application of Headley was processed, there is a case for victim activism against the ministry of external affairs

16 December, 2009

A Quadruple Agent

B. Raman

The ease with which Headley and Rana allegedly obtained multiple-entry business visas from Indian consular authorities despite their Pakistani origin definitely needs to send alarm bells ringing.

Headley-Rana: More Q&A

B. Raman

will the FBI would continue to resist the demand from India to question Headley? Where does Tahawwur Hussain Rana fit in? Did the Americans know of 26/11 through Headley?

14 December, 2009

'Blinking Red'

B. Raman

David Headley case figures, albeit in passing, in the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee of the US Senate -- with a reference to his travels to India before 26/11 and his role

12 December, 2009

The FBI Smoke Screen

B. Raman

The Headley case could result in a bombshell if it emerges that one of the active conspirators of 26/11 was an agent of a US agency.

10 December, 2009

The Jihadi Moles

B. Raman

David Headley's case brings to mind the attempt of Al Qaeda to use Dhiren Barot also known as Esa-al-Hindi, a Hindu convert to Islam living in the UK, to undertake reccee missions to New York

10 December, 2009

Headley & Mumbai 26/11

B. Raman

What are the chances of India getting David Coleman Headley extradited? Will Indian investigators be allowed to interrogate him? Has India reasons to be satisfied with the FBI co-operation ?

08 December, 2009

The Headley Conspiracy

B. Raman

The LET and the 313 Brigade were aware of each other's conspiracies relating to India and Denmark respectively and of the role of Headley in both the conspiracies, but their focus of interest was different.

01 December, 2009

The Spin, The Fizzle

B. Raman

Our relationship with the US is important, but that does not mean that we let ourselves be overawed into silence.
