However, the 'respected' investigative journalism site ProPublica has demonstrated that the USA only took action on Headley after the US had been tipped off by British intelligence.
"And even that victory came after seven years in which US intelligence failed to stop Headley as he roamed the globe on missions," it said.
"Headley's case shows an alarming litany of breakdowns in the US counter-terror system that allowed him to play a central role in the massacre of 166 people in Mumbai, among them six Americans," ProPublica said.
David Headley, the American who worked for the US Drugs Enforcement Administration, and who claimed he worked for the CIA.

"In late 2007 and early 2008, another wife told U.S. embassy officials in Islamabad that Headley was a terrorist and a spy, describing his frequent trips to Mumbai and his stay at the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel."
