The 2008 Mumbai Attack |

Unit 2, Item 1: The 2008 Mumbai Attack 

Rabasa et al. (2009) analyzed the attack carried out in Mumbai, India, in November 2008 by Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistani-based terrorist group. The well-planned attack resulted in 172 deaths and achieved the terrorist group’s objectives of increasing tensions between India and Pakistan and “humiliating the Indian security services, causing large-scale death and destruction, and garnering global media coverage for days.” (Rabasa et al., 2009, p. 2) Consider the recent terrorist attacks in Paris (November 2015) and contrast the tactics used by Indian responders to those armed forces in Paris. Look at supplemental readings (Rizvi and Moody ) for tactics and lessons learned that will help with your analysis.

Please read the Rabasa Rand report. Then take a look at either the Rizvi or Moody papers and in a few paragraphs, answer the questions in item 1 below.
