US send Headley to Pak as an informant: Report

David Headley
New York, Nov 8: Despite having the information that 26/11 attack plotter David Headley sympathies with extremist groups, US sent him to Pakistan as an informant after 9/11, New York Times reported on Nov 8.

The report also claimed that after arriving in Pakistan, Headley began training with terrorists, eventually playing a key role in the 26/11 attacks that left 166 people dead in Mumbai in 2008.

The media report also pointed out the point that what Headley was supposed to do in Pakistan for the Americans.

Headley's former probation officer Luis Caso stated, "All I knew was the DEA wanted him in Pakistan as fast as possible because they said they were close to making some big cases."

The new information showed that US intelligence agencies failed to act on at least five instances of warnings since 2001 by Headley's two wives and other sources who had provided tip offs about his training with Pakistani terrorists for a "special mission" against India.
