International terrorism, government informants exposed in Chicago

Here and Now

The Chicago case is shedding light on suspicions that the Pakistani government protects and works with terrorists. The federal government’s star witness is American-born, double agent and admitted scout for the Mumbai attacks, David Coleman Headley. And while Headley testified on the stand that he did not think top officials of Pakistan’s ISI intelligence agency knew of the attacks in advance, he described how he worked for two years with mid-level ISI officers who were actively planning Mumbai.

Sebastian Rotella, senior reporter for ProPublica, sheds light on the case for Here and Now.
