Information coming out of a secret State Department cable dated June 19, 2009 released by WikiLeaks indicates that Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT) T has established a facilitation centre in Sri Lanka and was looking at setting up a base of operations in Kerala and Tamil Nadu
.
It also reveals the dangerously expanding Lashkar network in India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Nepal.

The secret State Department cable is based on various intelligence inputs received by it, the source of which is not mentioned in the cable.

The cable notes that the network of Shafiq Khafa, a Lashkar leader,  is "striving to stand up two teams in southern India that rely on the support of LT members based in India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, and Nepal".

Although specific details of planned LeT attacks remain unknown, late-May 2009 intelligence indicates that Khafa's cells were engaged in surveillance activities of potential targets, likely in southern India.

"Early-May reporting further suggests Kerala or Tamil Nadu may be used as a base of operations following the establishment of a facilitation team in Sri Lanka, with the estimated time of completion for setting up the facilitation route and camps to be two to three months," the cable said.

It is understood that the specific intelligence information was passed on to India. (PTI )

    I doubt any links b'ween US and WikiLeaks operating in Australia. The sensitiveness of the secrets revealed proves this.

    will Julian get paid to stop leaking sensitive information ?

    Julian Assange is a Zionist, the only nation happy about these premature leaks is border-less, Israel!

    A conspiracy theory May Be? so that all vulnerable countries will buckle up with the assistance of the USA , so they may sell their weapons in Billion $ deals like they do with the countries in the middle east.

    USA is going down and they want to take as many countries along with them.

    All that goes up has to come down and All empires came down, now its the world police wanna be's turn.

    MagodisThuma Monday, 06 December 2010 07:30 AM

    WikiLeaks.... we would like to welcome you to Sri Lanka !
    There are lot of holes in the bucket & leaking very badly ! .

    Matara Kolla Monday, 06 December 2010 07:46 AM

    Certainly with the co-operation of LTTE on 'you scratch by back, I'll scratch yours' basis. Terrorists slways have commom ground.

    Kanthi Monday, 06 December 2010 07:47 AM

    These evil elements can even intrude as fake investors, since we are desperately looking for investors, WikiLeaks has it's good and bad.

    Karthik Monday, 06 December 2010 08:01 AM

    This recent document leaks might be a master plan by the US govt to threaten irresponsible countries in a different and intelligent way

    kudu Monday, 06 December 2010 08:03 AM

    man of the year for what ????

    Thadi Pusa Monday, 06 December 2010 08:22 AM

    exacly...........!!!

    guru Monday, 06 December 2010 08:27 AM

    I agree with karthik, This maybe a US consipiracy towards weak and vulnurable countries in order to fulful their wishes.
    Never trust uncle sam or its pro elements.
    If they found such dangerous things its their duty to let the respective country to know about it in the first place. Why wait ftill its leak........
    Very doubtful and misleading..? like bushes WMD.
