                    Looks like ISI is very poor. RS. 1500, RS. 18000, RS. 2000. Compare that with India's AW. 50% of 2G money was allocated. Disproportionately staffed Offices in Geneva and Liechtenstein only for handling politicians' money, especially Italian BCH'S money.

                        Actually the 2008 macre was planned and executed by India and specifically by M.K.Narayanan to satisfy the RED HOT TRIANGLE IF SONIA to divert the nations attention away from the Macre that India was carrying out in Tamil Eelam. That is why the Mumbai operation was in SLOW MOTION.

Now they can't make head or tale of it anymore! India indeed was the best bet for terrorists to get a soft cover but that is not the case anymore!

                                  This is more than enough proof that whatever Headley told was prepared and emailed to Headley by raw.

                                    Basic point is : A terrorist was killed. It does not matter anymore whether in actual encounter or a 'Fake encounter'. Few things do matter, like - 1) Re-installing those policemen 2) Asking those NIA/CBI top honchos about why they did lie in 2010. 3) Slap those terrorist sympathisers and short-sighted political leaders.

                                        With an eye on Muslim vote bank, Sonia hi tried to create an impression that Ishrat Jahan was killed because of being a Muslim and not because of being a terrorist. Entire Congress leadership was spreading the falsehood that the Modi dispensation of Gujarat got an innocent Muslim killed in a fake encounter.
