Zarar Shah, a leading commander of the Lashkar-e-Taiba group, has admitted under interrogation in Pakistan that he advised the terrorists by telephone as the attack unfolded.

Dear BT,

Looking your way today from Africa, it certainly looks that way.

a. Israel makes a serious mistake in judgment.
b. Pakistan goes nuclear.

There is potential for something terrible looking your way.
