COMMENT: The VERY unfor­tu­nate lega­cy of fail­ure to prop­er­ly inves­ti­gate 9/11 con­cerns prospects for future attacks.

There is firm evi­dence of involve­ment of ele­ments of the intel­li­gence ser­vices of Pak­istan, Sau­di Ara­bia and Ger­many in the exe­cu­tion of the attacks. There is also firm evi­dence of deep com­plic­i­ty of a Fifth Col­umn in this coun­try, involv­ing the GOP, the Bush admin­is­tra­tion, the petro­le­um indus­try.

We also note for future dis­cus­sion that ele­ments of U.S. intel­li­gence have pur­sued a pol­i­cy of using jihadists as proxy war­riors in places such as Afghanistan, the Balka­ns and the present-day Cau­ca­sus. Those Under­ground Reich-relat­ed ele­ments appear uncon­cerned with the blow­back that results from their activ­i­ties, such as the Boston Marathon bomb­ing.

“Van­field” calls to our atten­tion a very impor­tant sto­ry from The Times of India that high­lights pos­si­ble equip­ping of jihadists with nukes.

Pak­istani and Indi­an jihadis heav­i­ly over­lap the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, a ter­ri­fy­ing prospect.

The pos­si­bil­i­ty that one or more jiha­di nukes may be used at some point in the future is one to be tak­en into account.

As a Pak­istani case offi­cer told an Indi­an jiha­di bomb-mak­er, “Any­thing can be arranged in Pak­istan.”

“Indi­an Mujahideen Want­ed to Nuke Surat, Yasin Bhatkal Tells Cops” by Neer­aj Chauhan; Times of India; 12/30/2013.

EXCERPT: The prospect of ter­ror organ­i­sa­tions get­ting their hands on a nuclear device has long con­cerned both secu­rity agen­cies and thriller writ­ers. Now, it seems Indi­an Mujahideen India chief Ahmad Zarar Sid­d­ibappa alias Yasin Bhatkal too was think­ing along sim­i­lar lines. Bhatkal recent­ly told inter­roga­tors that he was plan­ning to set off a nuclear bomb in Surat, accord­ing to sources.

Bhatkal was arrest­ed on August 27 in Pokhra, Nepal and has been con­stantly ques­tioned by the NIA, Intel­li­gence Bureau and police of sev­eral states. TOI has accessed the inter­ro­ga­tion report.

Bhatkal told the inter­roga­tors that he had asked his Pak­istan-based boss, Riyaz Bhatkal, over phone whether the lat­ter could arrange a small “nuclear bomb”. Accord­ing to him, Riyaz respond­ed, “Any­thing can be arranged in Pak­istan”.

“Riyaz told me that attacks can be done with nuclear bombs. I request­ed him to look for one nuclear bomb for Surat,” Yasin told the offi­cials.

“Riyaz told me Mus­lims would also die in that (nuclear bomb blast), to which I said that we would paste posters in mosques ask­ing every Mus­lim to qui­etly evac­u­ate their fam­i­lies from the city,” Yasin said, accord­ing to the report.

How­ever, the plan could not be ini­ti­ated since Yasin was tracked by the IB and arrest­ed in August.

Surat has always been on Yasin’s radar and he had also played an impor­tant role in prepar­ing 27 bombs along with Atif Ameen in 2008 when ser­ial blasts took place in Del­hi, Jaipur and Ahmed­abad.

Yasin him­self was the bomb expert of Indi­an Mujahideen and the outfit’s bomb-mak­ing capa­bil­i­ties have been affect­ed after his arrest, say intel­li­gence offi­cials.

The IM leader has also giv­en details of army lev­el train­ing of IM cadres and oth­er ter­ror­ists in Pak­istan, which shows that advanced train­ing is giv­en to ter­ror­ists with the help of Pak­istan. . . . .

. . . . A senior intel­li­gence offi­cial said, “We have been com­ing across dif­fer­ent kinds of IEDs over the years. The rea­son is that ter­ror­ists are under­go­ing all kind of advanced army lev­el train­ing in Pak­istan with the help of ISI. And if ter­ror out­fits have access to nuclear bombs, then it is very dan­ger­ous for us (India) [and every­one else as well–DE].
