Notwithstanding the popular opinion that the revelations by David Headley have yielded no new facts, the details that have emerged from the deposition have major international ramifications.
The US Treasury Department blames the LeT for Samjhauta blasts. David Headley’s Moroccon wife said her husband was involved, but the previous dispensation, which Rohini Salian found convenient to work with, was steadfast in its claim that it was perpetrated by Hindu terrorists which included Lt Col Purohit.
A very happy and a prosperous 2011 to all the readers of Canary Trap. As we enter a new year, we bring you the top 10 posts of 2010 from different categories (Corruption, Politics, Security and Intelligence, History, Media Analysis).
While the confusion prevails on whether India will get access to Headley, Canary Trap brings you the details of Headley’s plea bargain. The government knows that Headley has signed a plea agreement while pleading guilty to all the 12 terrorism related charges against him.
It is quite clear from the agreement that US wants to control access to David Headley for reasons that Canary Trap has highlighted in a previous post. The Indian Government can make tall claims of questioning/extraditing Headley, but the reality is that it is not being taken seriously by the US administration.
