Terrorist Attack in India

There has been a terrorist attack in Mumbai, India (formerly known as Bombay.) As of this writing, eighty people have been killed and 240 people have been injured.

Terrorist gunmen have carried out multiple attacks in luxury hotels, train stations and tourist attractions. Deccan Mujahideen, an Islamic terrorist group based in southern India reportedly with ties to al Qaeda and elements in Pakistan's intelligence services, has claimed responsibility for the attacks. It is believed that Deccan Mujahideen are targeting American and British tourists.

A spokeswoman for President-elect Obama said, "The United States must continue to strengthen our partnership with India and nations around the world to root out and destroy terrorist networks." Strengthen our partnership? I'm sure the terrorists are quivering in their boots.
