As a BBC report notes, at least some of the Mumbai attackers were not Indian and certainly not Muslim.
Pappu Mishra, a cafe proprietor at the gothic Victorian Chattrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station, described “two sprightly young men dressed in black” with AK47s who were “foreign looking, fair skinned.”
Gaffar Abdul Amir, an Iraqi tourist from Baghdad, saw at least two men who started the firing outside the Leopold Cafe. “They did not look Indian, they looked foreign. One of them, I thought, had blonde hair. The other had a punkish hairstyle. They were neatly dressed,” Amir told the BBC.
Other “men walked into the cafe, drank beer, settled their bills and walked out. Then they fished out guns from their bags and began firing.” Muslims do not drink alcohol, that is unless they are Muslims like Marwan Al-Shehhi and Mohamed Atta, who reportedly not only liked to drink but enjoyed lap dances by topless dancers as well before they supposedly hijacked planes and flew them into buildings.

While not taking sides at all I would like to point out that one guy says that 2 of the attackers were "light skinned". So we are supposed to think that this is a false flag?!?!
I pray for the quick end to this for the families.

Well ive seen some pictures of them, and they looked fairly Indian to me.
But modern Indian.
But I guess it would be a good excuse to blame and invade Pakistan.
Due to Pakistan being a haven for Taliban and causing issues in Afghanistan.
However the Southern Indian Mujaheddin have already claimed responsibility.
And stated it was revenge for some raids the Gov had done on there Islamic places in India.
And the facts they had such good local knowledge, would lead many to believe they are local Indian Muslims.
Hard to say really we will have to wait and see what actions become of it.

I can't say im surprised to hear some one is trying to put blame for this one western, Anglo Americans. On the up side they do have the bodies and the ones the captured. This was not a small operation. If the names and backgrounds of the terrorists are ever relised we can see where that goes.

I am in full agreement. I suspected as soon as the attack occured that it was the UK/US special forces.
They need to portray the image that there is some overbearing terrorist force across asia and the middle east. In reality this is simply not true
