Mumbai Terrorists Hopped Up?
British tabloid The Mirror has a curious report that says the Mumbai terrorists were hopped up on cocaine and LSD.
The Mumbai terrorists may have pumped themselves full of drugs to keep going during their murderous three-day rampage.
Indian police sources say tests on the bodies of dead Islamic fanatics revealed traces of stimulant drugs.
One said: “We found injections containing traces of cocaine and LSD left behind by the terrorists and later found drugs in their blood. There was also evidence of steroids, which isn’t uncommon in terrorists. These men were all toned, suggesting they had been doing some heavy training for the attacks. This explains why they managed to battle the commandos for over 50 hours with no food or sleep.”
The source said one gunman is thought to have injected himself with large doses of stimulant so he could keep on fighting after he was seriously wounded.
I’m skeptical about this. Cocaine, not out of the question. Steroids, sure. But LSD? A powerful hallucinogen seems like a poor drug choice to fuel a terrorist massacre spree. Somebody in the Indian police is pulling The Mirror’s leg.
