Opinion | Mumbai terror strike: A footnote in history

For three days of what seemed like unrelenting horror, 10 terrorists from Pakistan—hand-picked, armed and trained under the supervision of the Pakistani establishment—rampaged through the streets of Mumbai, attacking both high-profile targets and innocent civilians with appalling ease and impunity. The toll: 166 deaths, 308 injuries, and a nation left shaken and incandescent.
