2008: Islamic terrorists operating in
Indian Kashmir got sloppy with their cell phone use, and destroyed a valuable
support network that included some local Moslem politicians. Counter-terrorism
forces monitored cell phone traffic, and some conversations in Kashmir revealed
a terrorist network that included some local Moslem politicians. The terrorists
had developed security procedures for using their cell phones, but Indian
intelligence eventually identified who was using the phones and for what.
Improved Indian cell phone monitoring methods were suspected by the terrorists,
but they became obvious when some local politicians were implicated in
providing cell phones, and other assistance, to the terrorists.
