Some five months before the 26/11 Mumbai terrorist attack, India had warned the US about increasing ” white faces” in terrorist camps along Pak-Afghan border and the attempt by jihadi groups to acquire fissile material to “fabricate a crude bomb beyond a dirty bomb”.

According to a US diplomatic cable dated May 30, 2008, released by WikiLeaks the then National Security Advisor M K Narayanan had said this during a meeting with the visiting American Senators Russ Feingold and Bob Casey in New Delhi.

According to the cable, Narayanan told the Senators that the US-India relationship amounts to much more than just trade links and defence deals, but rather benefits from a mutual empathy.

Asked about terrorism, Narayanan related that training camps on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border have attracted more “white faces”.
