Police in India have provided the names of specific members of the Pakistan army who cooperated in planning the deadly attack on Mumbai. Pakistan Colonel R. Sadatullah of the Special Communications Organization (SCO) was named as part of the group that helped plan the attack on one of India’s major cities. Investigators say his email account was used to set up the “voice over internet” system which the attackers used. Police have taped conversations between the attackers and their handlers in which the name “Major General Sahab” repeatedly crops up. A spokesperson for the Pakistan military claims there “are many Colonel Sadatullahs in the Pakistan army.” Now, that is a brilliant defense!
There is no question the Pakistan army helped plan the attack on Mumbai, the real issue is whether the Pakistan government has the power or desire to do anything about it. Perhaps, the first step is to arrest the thousands of Colonel Sadatullahs in the Pakistan army and begin questioning them.
