US and Canadian Terrorists Abroad *updated*

Sounds strange but appears to be coming more likely. Rusty Shackleford, of The Jawa Report, has written an informative piece for Pajamas Media about the recent arrest of two men in Chicago who now appear to have links to the Mumbai terror attacks which took place last November. One of the men arrested, David Headley, allegedly visited Mumbai and posed as a Jew in order to gain access to Chabad House. Disgusting.
Rusty writes:
Indian news media now reports that Headley pretended to be Jewish in order to gain access to the house.
These reports perfectly match the pattern set forth in the federal indictments against Headley and his co-conspirator Tahawar Rana. Headley goes abroad posing as a businessman. He scouts the locations of possible targets for terror attacks. He lies in order to enter targeted buildings. He then passes on that information to his Pakistan-based contacts.

Canadian news networks are also reporting that India's nuclear sites have been put on high alert after the government learned details relating to the arrests of David Headley and Tahawwur Hussain Rana (a Canadian who was also arrested in Chicago with Headley). All this is taking place as Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper visits India.

I agree with Rusty; these are disturbing developments from a North American standpoint. Canadians and Americans must take note of what is taking place around them. This is your backyard.

Update: Rusty has posted CTV's video report about the Canadian connection over on the Jawa Report. Click here to see it. One other factoid for those of you who care - Canada has been steadfast in its support for India since the Mumbai attacks took place. As mentioned over at Jawa, PM Stephen Harper visited Chabad House and other sites this week - however months ago Canadian Conservative MP Jason Kenney, Minister of Citizenship, Immigration and Multicultularism also visited sites of the massacre to pay his repects.
