In the preceding year’s report, in the section devoted to strategic appraisal, the LeT did not merit a mention. But it gets plenty of attention in the assessment this time around.

The new appraisal says: “The Lashkar-e-Tayyeba link has added a further dimension to the terrorist threat scenery since its activities have made clear its deepening pledge to undertake bold, mass-casualty actions against American and other Western targets. Since the 2008 Mumbai attack, analysts have deepening apprehension that it could evolve into a genuine global threat.”
The observation that the epicenter of global terror remainder in Pakistan has not changed.

The explanation said, “In 2009, Al Qaeda’s core in Pakistan stay the most formidable terrorist organization targeting the US homeland.” Even a year earlier, the assessment had listening carefully upon how the Al Qaeda was deriving many of the reimbursement in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas or FATA region of Pakistan that it once did in Afghanistan.
