A large number of Indians now suspect that the CIA carried out the 2008 Mumbai attacks.
According to India's Ambassador M K Bhadrakumar: "For the first time in recent years, the Indian public has closed ranks with prevalent opinion in Pakistan that sees the US as a diabolic, self-centered power, which double-crosses its partners, friends and allies in single-minded pursuit of its interests."

The American FBI has made a bargain with the American 'CIA agent' David Headley.
Headley planned the terrorist attack in Mumbai in November 2008.
The deal means that the US government doesn't have to produce any evidence against Headley in a court.
That evidence might have included details of Headley's links with US intelligence.
The deal means there will be no cross-examination of Headley.
The deal means that the families of the 166 people who died cannot have lawyers questioning Headley.
The FBI is not allowing Headley's extradition to India.
The FBI is not allowing Indian agencies to interrogate Headley regarding his links with US and Pakistani intelligence.
In return for pleading guilty to the charges against him Headley will get a light sentence.

According to the ambassador:
The Obama administration is involved in a cover-up.
The plea bargain refers to the Pakistani handlers of Headley as A, B, C and D.
We will never know who they are.
After the Lockerbie Bombing in 1988, the UK government allowed the American authorities access.
The plea bargain confirms that Headley worked for the US Drug Enforcement Administration which works closely with the CIA.
The US government is trying to hide something, "and what better way to do that than by placing Headley in safe custody and not risk exposing him to Indian intelligence?
"...Clearly, the Obama administration was apprehensive that Headley might spill the beans if the Indians got hold of him and the trail could then lead to his links with the CIA..."
The Americans are hoping to manipulate the Indian elite, including big business.
