In this era of geopolitical pandemonium in-between American administrations (P.S.: Where is President Bush in all this. Is he still sipping "Pisco Sours"?), methinks that we will be experiencing more "Roshamon" moments. Is multiple perspectivism a function of the new multilateral world order? From the Foreign Policy blog:
"Some stories say that there were eight terrorists already waiting in the Taj Mahal and Oberoi Hotels. The Times of India claims that all of the terrorists were Pakistani citizens, and that they had expected to make it back on the fishing trawler they hijacked. This was not a suicide mission.
"To give you an idea of how disparate the accounts can be, the Times names the skipper of this purloined vessel as Amarjit Singh, while The Hindu says his name was Balwant Tandel. Rediff says there were two fishing boats. The Times says the terrorists left from 'an isolated creek near Karachi,' while Rediff reports that 'Intelligence Bureau officials are trying to verify if the terrorists came in through the Persian Gulf.' Rediff also mentions that its information comes from the interrogation of 'Abu Ismail,' while according to the Times a terrorist named 'Ismail' was killed at Girgaum Chowpaty, a local beach."
