Intelligencia are at each others throats…..
India’s intelligence agencies have descended into ‘civil war’ following the Mumbai attacks that exposed the country’s vulnerability to terrorism, analysts and experts say, AFP reported.
The country’s various security bodies have long refused to communicate and now blame each other for failing to act on information that could have thwarted the terror strikes, they said.
A week after the attacks, and amid mounting public anger, reports are emerging that intelligence agencies knew that India’s financial capital may be targeted by extremists.
India has more than a dozen intelligence agencies that decline to pool information or answer to a central command, said Wilson John, senior fellow at the Observer Research Foundation think tank in New Delhi. The agencies range from the National Security Council Secretariat, headed by a political appointee answerable to the prime minister, down to the military and police.
