He Went Thattaway!

From Foxnews:

Security forces [Pakistani Forces] overran a militant camp on the outskirts of Pakistani Kashmir's main city and reportedly seized the mastermind of the attacks that shook India's financial capital last month, two officials said Monday.

The raid was Pakistan's first known response to U.S. and Indian demands for the arrest of the perpetrators of the Mumbai attacks, which have sharply raised tensions between South Asia's two nuclear-armed powers.

Backed by a helicopter, the troops grabbed Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi among at least 12 people taken Sunday in the raid on the riverbank camp run by the banned group Laskhar-e-Taiba in Pakistani Kashmir, the officials said. There was a brief clash in the camp near Muzaffarabad before the militants were subdued, the officials said.

Anyone else find it strange that they knew exactly where the plotter was mere days after the attacks? It couldn't be that they knew all along and only after India threatened to strike Pakistan that they decided to pony up the info, could it? I wonder what other persons hiding in the rural Al Qaeda caves they could help us find...

Remember folks, Pakistan is our friend and ally. I also have some beachfront property in Florida I'd like to sell you too...
