India, with supposed US collaboration, is now saying that they have proof that , senior leaders is the Pakistani based Lashkar-e-Taiba, were behind last weeks attacks in Mumbai.

Secretary of State Rice, after meeting with Pakistani President Zardari, was confident that Pakistan would take steps to capture anyone involved in the attacks.  What was missing is why Ms. Rice felt such confidence.

Indian and American intelligence officials have already identified another Lashkar-e-Taiba operative, Yusuf Muzammil, as a mastermind of the attacks, and said he was in contact by satellite phone with the attackers during their journey.  This was confirmed by CIA director Mike McConnell yesterday.  Additionally the Hindu newspaper stated that Lakshar tested the sea route to Mumbai as early as 2007.

Zardari et. al. have yet to respond to the most recent statements by India and the U.S.

Additionally, it has now been cofirmed that several hostages at the Chabad house were tortured before being killed during the attack.
