Long War Journal: Kashmiri, Lashkar-e-Taiba operatives aided 2 Americans in foiled Danish terror plot

Bill Roggio writes,
Two American citizens who have been indicted for plotting terror attacks overseas have direct connections to a senior al Qaeda commander and two Lashkar-e-Taiba operatives.

Chicago natives David Coleman Headley and Tahawwur Hussain Rana have been charged in federal court for plotting to conduct attacks against a newspaper in Denmark, according to a criminal complaint that was unsealed today at the US District Court in Chicago. Headley was in contact with al Qaeda commander Ilyas Kashmiri and two unnamed Lashkar-e-Taiba operatives.
This is going to be one interesting story. Can we think Bush / Cheney reforms for the ability to get these guys before they strike? Or is that a Bush legacy that Obama is not mopping up after?

Update: Chicago News Bench will be all over this story. Watch 'em.
