    Default Headley's Wife Tipped of FBI 3 Years Before Mumbai Attacks

    Turns out the FBI knew in detail about Headley's activities in Pakistan (not surprising, considering the fact he was a US agent/informer), but let him travel freely around the world and complete his mission anyway.

    From the Washington Post:
    "In three interviews with federal agents, Headley's wife said that he was an active militant in the terrorist group Lashkar-i-Taiba, had trained extensively in its Pakistani camps, and had shopped for night-vision goggles and other equipment, according to officials and sources close to the case. The wife, whom ProPublica is not identifying to protect her safety, also told agents that Headley had bragged of working as a paid U.S. informant while he trained with the terrorists in Pakistan, according to a person close to the case."

    I can only see a claim that he did work for the DEA as an informer at one time. I am more interested in why Easy Irish thinks this is a 'false flag'? Or is the term used as a signal for certain posters to turn off their brains and go with the flow - regardless of the facts (or lack of them).

    She said he was a "paid US informant". The DEA are a US federal body and he apparently did once act as an informer for them.

    Actually...

    She said, headingly bragged he was a paid US informant.

    little more information needed before

    FALSE FLAG!

    Is Easy Irish suggesting that the US Government carried out the attacks?

    If you've followed the case the US government has acknowledged that he was a paid DEA informant.

    From wikipedia:

    "In November 1998, Headley was delivered to the low-security Federal Correctional Institution in Fort Dix. However, his supervised release period was never completed. Instead, in November 2001, an assistant U.S. attorney applied to have Headley discharged.[17] Headley traveled to Pakistan multiple times to conduct undercover surveillance operations for the Drug Enforcement Administration.[13] In 2002 and three times in 2003, he attended Lashkar-e-Taiba training camps in Pakistan.[15]"

    Well, As far as I can see, the facts are as follows:
    1. Headley worked as a DEA informant
    2. His wife went to the FBI in 2005 and expressed her concern at her husband's activities, i.e. that he was involved in terrorist training activities in Pakistan
    3. Headley continued to move freely and then supervised the attacks in Mumbai

    Now, I for one find this a little suspicious.

    I see the Pentagon recently bought up the entire first print run of a book written by an army intelligence officer who identified Mohammad Atta as the leader of a terror cell 2 years before the 9/11 attacks. Apparently nobody listened to him and he was prevented from sharing the info with the FBI.
    Pentagon Burns 'Operation Dark Heart': Censorship Gaffe? - TIME

    Two of the most significant terror attacks ever, and security agencies were explicitly forewarned in both instances and did nothing?

    That's a little slack isn't it?

    A paid Drugs enforcement agency informant. Do the DEA combat terrorism in Pakistan?
