Mumbai Terrorists Hopped Up?

British tabloid The Mirror has a curious report that says the Mumbai terrorists were hopped up on cocaine and LSD.

The Mumbai terrorists may have pumped themselves full of drugs to keep going during their murderous three-day rampage.

Indian police sources say tests on the bodies of dead Islamic fanatics revealed traces of stimulant drugs.

One said: “We found injections containing traces of cocaine and LSD left behind by the terrorists and later found drugs in their blood. There was also evidence of steroids, which isn’t uncommon in terrorists. These men were all toned, suggesting they had been doing some heavy training for the attacks. This explains why they managed to battle the commandos for over 50 hours with no food or sleep.”

The source said one gunman is thought to have injected himself with large doses of stimulant so he could keep on fighting after he was seriously wounded.

I’m skeptical about this. Cocaine, not out of the question. Steroids, sure. But LSD? A powerful hallucinogen seems like a terrible choice of drugs when going on a terrorist massacre spree. Somebody in the Indian police is pulling The Mirror’s leg.

Twin Cities Muslim in Somalia Bombing

Shirwa Ahmed, a Somali man who lived in the Twin Cities, apparently blew himself up last week in northern Somalia—and there are almost a dozen others who recently disappeared from the Minneapolis area.

5 EYEWITNESS NEWS has learned that federal law enforcement sources believe that a Twin Cities man blew himself up in a suicide bombing in Northern Somalia last month. The FBI and Homeland Security are investigating whether Shirwa Ahmed had developed a terrorist recruiting network in the area.

5 EYEWITNESS NEWS learned that Ahmed came to the Twin Cities in 1996 and graduated from Roosevelt High School in Minneapolis. He was a naturalized U.S. citizen.

More than a dozen young men of Somali descent, mostly in their 20s, from the Minneapolis area have recently disappeared, U.S. law enforcement officials tell 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS. All are thought to be associates of Ahmed. U.S. officials suspect most of the young men have departed for Somalia to fight in ongoing violence there or to train in terrorist camps. Family members of the young men are said to be distraught, trying to figure to out what happened to them, sources say.

So far, the investigation has not uncovered credible evidence of a plot targeting the U.S. but American officials want to track down all these young men before they can say for certain what this is or is not, according to ABC News.

Islamic Terror Attack Kills 18 in India

t isn’t getting much media coverage, but there was a major coordinated terror attack earlier today in the capital city of India: Explosions Kill 18 in Indian Capital.

NEW DELHI (AP) — A series of bombs exploded at a park and crowded shopping areas across India’s capital Saturday evening, killing at least 18 people and wounding dozens. Muslim extremists claimed to be behind the latest in a recent wave of attacks that has killed more than 100.

The bombs were clearly timed for maximum bloodshed and panic. Placed in jammed shopping districts, the explosives began to go off just before sundown — prime time for weekend shoppers in crowded, chaotic New Delhi — sending thousands fleeing in fear.

Home Minister Shivraj Patil said at least 18 people died in five explosions, but some media reports put the death toll as high as 25. Mayor Arti Mehra said at least 61 more suffered wounds.

Just who the attackers are remains unclear.

Yes, it’s a real headscratcher. Who could it possibly have been?

Perhaps this is a clue:

A number of Indian media outlets received an e-mail sent just before the blasts warning that India was about to receive “the Message of Death.”

In the name of Allah, Indian Mujahideen strikes back once more. … Do whatever you can. Stop us if you can,” said the message.
