Wikileaks: US Backed ISI Demand On 26/11

Damaging revelations have emerged on the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack from the Wikileaks expose.

The leaked cables show that the US backed ISI's request to make India delay the release of 26/11 information and the Chief of Pakistan Army told the US that they would respond to an attack by India in the aftermath.

It has also emerged that the US and Pakistan were in close contact over the response to the Mumbai attacks.

Though ISI Chief Shuja Pasha had agreed to the CIA's request to share information with Indian intelligence agencies on 26/11, he had rejected Washington's proposal of signing a non-aggression pact with India.
In 2006, the US embassy also advised its govt to delay notifying the Jamaat-ud-Dawa as a proxy of the Lashkar e Toiba - which may have led to a delay in the UN banning the outfit.
