As I mentioned before. We have NO IDEA the situation when that picture was taken...
Did you see both pics in that sequence? It looked alot to me as if he were raising the AK with one hand to fire at somebody, I suppose though he could
have been directing one of his buddies with the gun. Either way, if the person who took that picture was holding a gun instead of a camera, he would
have taken a slug to the teeth and not even seen it coming.
NO SOLDIER, nay NOBODY PERIOD, is going to walk around with weapon-at-ready for over 30 hours!
That image was taken very early in the attack, at the train station, it hadn't even been an hour yet.
You don't know what was going on around him. Maybe he was in an obviously cleared zone and he dropped his weapon!
Okay, maybe the person taking the picture was invisible to him.
I'll tell you this much, though. It is a "fact" that they took out many police officers (if you believe some of the reports, they took out more
policemen than they had in number of attackers!)... They also took out at least FOUR high level people. Three top level counter terrorism agents and a
MAJOR of the NSG... Top brass.
I believe most of their kills on the police were scored by lobbing grenades, and what in the hell was their counter terrorism chief doing running
directly into the line of fire?? I think these guys had people (other extremists) on the inside a few places.
These guys were good, there is no doubt. In fact, the fact that most of the pictures illustrate ONE MAN make me VERY curious!
I still think any training they recieved was in extremist camps, ours or the Indian government may or may not have known about it ahead of time
though. Maybe they let it happen, kinda like our government let 9/11 happen because they saw an opportunity to push an agenda. I think there may have
been some looking the other way, but no actual involvement from any state.
