Red face Mumbai-type attacks can be replicated: Obama

Obama warns of Mumbai-type attacks around the world!
The new tactics used in the recent 26/11 Mumbai attacks are very worrisome as the terrorists used a low-tech approach - direct assault with automatic guns. This is far more dangerous than suicide bombers because the attackers can continue to attack and kill more innocents unlike a suicide bomber who exploded the bomb and kills only in the immediate vicinity. Now President Obama has also voiced his concerns over these new style of attacks.

Mumbai-type attacks can be replicated: Obama
11 Jan 2009, 2220 hrs IST, PTI


WASHINGTON: President-elect Barack Obama on Sunday voiced fear that Mumbai-type attacks can be replicated by terrorists in other parts of world, including the US and said his administration will focus on putting more pressure on "our major target" al-Qaida.

Asked about 26/11 terror strikes in an interview to ABC News, Obama said the "danger is always there" to have a Mumbai-type attack in an American city.

"When you see what happened in Mumbai, that potentially points to a new strategy, not simply suicide bombings but you have commandos taking over...," he said.

"I think you have to anticipate that having seen the mayhem that was created in Mumbai, that there are going to be potential copycats or other terrorist organisations that think this is something that they can replicate," Obama said.

At a Congressional hearing on Mumbai attack this week, top US intelligence and police officials had expressed similar fear and said that this makes all the more necessary to ensure that those responsible for such an attack are brought to justice, given that US cities are always on top of the hit list of al-Qaida and other terrorist groups.

"So we're going to have to be vigilant in terms of our intelligence, we're going to have to make sure that we are more effective in terms of anticipating some of these issues, and we've got to continue to put pressure on al-Qaida, which is our major target that's something that I talked about extensively during the campaign," Obama said.

"That has to be one of our primary areas of focus when it comes to our international security."
