Originally broadcast as segments of the television program Frontline on November 22, 2011, this 56-minute documentary devles into the most spectacular Mumbai attack since 9/11.
India quickly learned the attackers belonged to Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistani militant group associated with Pakistan's secretive intelligence agency.
But what wasn't known then was that a Lashkar operative had been casing the city for 2 years, developing a blue print for terror.
The name of the operative was David Coleman Headley---an American citizen.
It is a mysterious investigative documentary.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. “Not too bad---good performance”. "I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.”

A great documentary of how the Pakistani/Al Qaeda terrorists plan out and plot their terrorist attacks. And it follows the life of David Headley, son of an Pakistani father/ American mother. Headley goes from being a heroin addict/smuggler to a USA government agent (relations to Devon and California India/Pak town), to a double agent Pakistan terrorist operative who cased Mumbai for the famous attacks that killed over 170 people. See if CNN has developed a DVD from its Fareed Zakiria program that showed films of the the Mumbai terrorist attacks made possible by Headley's surveillance operations.
