|...is that the US/UK et al ignored global terrorist ideology thinking it would be restricted by geography. They therefore ignored years of significant state sponsored terrorism from Pakistan against India, and paid the price for their short sightedness when the Pakistani proxies and their allies, Al Qaeda, hit the twin towers. Looksn like not much has been learnt, unfortunately: Pakistan is still an "ally" even when letter people like LeT's founder go free.
Btw: how do you Brits feel about it, considering that LeT is also quite responsible for the London subway bombings?
Lashkar-e-Toiba founder released
Mr Saeed has been under arrest since August
Hafiz Mohammad Saeed, the founder of the Lashkar-e-Toiba militant group, was released by Pakistani authorities on Wednesday morning.
His release was ordered by a court in Lahore on Tuesday.
Mr Saeed, who runs the controversial Jamaat-ud-Dawa charity, has been in detention since 10 August.
The US has listed Jamaat-ud-Dawa as a terrorist organisation. It says the charity is a fundraising front for Lashkar-e-Toiba.
The court ordered Mr Saeed's release once before, on 28 August, but the Punjab government rearrested him hours later under a public order law.
Pakistan has banned Lashkar-e-Toiba but has so far described Jamaat-ud-Dawa as a legitimate Islamic charity with relief operations in the earthquake hit areas of Kashmir and northern Pakistan.
However, in response to a petition challenging Mr Saeed's detention, a government official on Monday argued that Mr Saeed's activities could damage Pakistan's relations with its neighbours.
Officials in India linked Lashkar-e-Toiba to the Mumbai (Bombay) train bombings in July in which more than 180 people were killed.
