Police Errors Worsened Mumbai Attacks

As Journalists are just beginning the process of accountability for the terrorist attacks in Mumbai back in November that claimed 173 people, newly uncovered transcripts reveal a police force caught off-guard and unprepared for such extreme violence. Tehelka reports that senior police officers were seized "by chaos and rigor mortis," thereby worsening the situation of bombings and gun violence. One transcript captures one valiant police officer's stand against two of the terrorists, as he held his ground and pleaded for reinforcements that never came. Overall, the transcripts lead to the chilling conclusion that "both the Mumbai Police and the Maharashtra government are trying to cover up the truth of 26/11."
