Exclusive: David Headley and I
Bhatt was interviewed by officers of the Indian security services: including someone called Singh.
Singh said, "Why did you refer to him as Agent Headley?"
Bhatt writes: "I had already answered all the questions about why I thought Headley was an American agent and probably from the CIA."
Bhatt replied to Singh: "Headley always liked to flaunt his knowledge about spy craft and espionage, and his knowledge of different kinds of weapons..."
Bhatt told Singh that Headley had once told him that he knew Ayub Afridi.
"I had never heard of this man at all!" said Bhatt. "But Headley told me that Ayub Afridi was a hot-shot drug lord, the Pablo Escobar of Pakistan. And he told me that he knew him personally. What else would you make of him, Mr Singh?"
Bhatt told Singh:
Headley, while talking about Afridi, had spoken about a weapons bazaar in Peshawar, Pakistan, where one could get Uzi submachine guns cloned in Iran.
Headley also said that heroin was openly sold in Pakistan and that he had some very good contacts in the drug mafia there.
According to Headley, the entire drug belt in the Pashtun area of Pakistan was run by the heroin mafia.

David Headley became mixed up with drugs, sex and an attempt to start a war.
India claims to be still in the dark about who funded the American terrorist David Headley.
"The US never gave us access to David Headley's bank accounts that would have revealed who paid for his trips (to India and Pakistan)," said former Union home secretary G.K. Pillai.
Headley made many visits to India to map out targets for terrorism.
One of Headley's ex-wives told U.S. officials that she thought Headley was linked to the 2007 bombing of the Samjauta express train in India that killed dozens of people.
Parliamentarian Vivek Pandit has said that David Headley has links to the 1993 bomb blasts in India. (Which ex-minister put pressure on Ujjwal Nikam? )
The 1993 attacks on Bombay are believed to have been coordinated by Dawood Ibrahim, who allegedly works for the CIA.

Headley was an agent of the US government.
And he is believed to have worked with members of the Indian security services, who secretly worked for the CIA.

The DEA handlers did not write a report.
11. Headley was on probation for an offence relating to drugs.
A federal judge ended Headley’s probation three years early so he could travel to Pakistan.
Headley’s lawyer, Howard Leader, said: "The fact that this was coming from the government, that was, frankly, highly unusual...It's the only occasion I can recall it ever happening."
Leader said he believed the DEA had made the request and that Headley would continue working for the agency in Pakistan.
Leader said that "In light of the then-very-recent events on September the 11th, I think that he was going to go back to Pakistan with a view towards meeting with or gathering whatever information he could that might be useful to the U.S. government..."

28. (Headley has the appearance of someone who has been brainwashed by the CIA's MK ULTRA programme)
Headley loves the films of the Coen brothers.
He has a caring and generous personality and a cold and treacherous personality.
One of the most telling phrases:"India, Russia, China, Brazil. How do you break up the friendship?"
The Mumbai attacks were intended to shift Indian political opinion and further alienate India from Pakistan and bring India into closer cooperation with the US-Israel-UK axis of evil against China-Pakistan.
The axis of evil would be happy just to instigate a war to weaken both India and Pakistan.
If China takes the bait too, that's a bonus.The axis of evil is never terribly original.
It's all the same tired and bloody stratagems they pulled in Western Europe as part of the Strategy of Tension to ensure ongoing hostility towards Russia and European subjugation to the interests of the Angloamerican cryptoplutocracy of banksters.
This dirty work is always done in cooperation with extremists from the intel, criminal and deep political worlds.
Not that there's much difference between them.
Mostly they're filth who can't see past the greenback dangled in front of their runny noses, whether they're in the IB (Indian domestic intel), RAW, RSS, BJP, or mil intel.
And who's doing the dangling? The usual suspects: CIA and Mossad narco thugs....
