FBI Helped Decrypt GPS from Mumbai Terrorist Attack

pocketgpsworld.comThe Times of India has reported that in an otherwise very tech-savvy country, India's forensic labs do not have the technical expertise to analyze crucial GPS evidence - evidence collected from five GPS phones that were used by the terrorists during the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai.

Attempting to prove Pakistani complicity in the 26/11 attack, the Indian police sent the handsets to Mumbai's Forensic Sciences Laboratory, but they were returned as they lacked the software to test them.

The handsets were then sent to the United States FBI to analyse the sailing route taken from Karachi to Mumbai.

The Times says that due to the FBI evidence "it became clear how the attack on Mumbai was mounted from the sea by Lashkar-e-Taiba operatives."

The Islamic Lashkar-e-Taiba based outside Lahore in Pakistan is one of the largest militant organizations in South Asia. US intelligence believe that Pakistan's main intelligence agency, gives Lashkar-e-Taiba help and protection so it would seem obvious that the FBI would be eager to help out with their superior GPS forensic knowledge.

The terrorists steered their boat using GPS equipment and used Blackberries, satellite phones and GPS navigators to co-ordinate their attacks.
