“The Lashkar today has emerged as a very major force. It has connectivity with west Asia, Europe....Actually there was an LeT module broken in Virginia and some people were picked up. It is as big as and omnipotent as al Qaeda in ever sense of the term.” This was said by India’s National Security Adviser M. K. Narayanan on August 11, 2006. There are extensive LeT networks that run through Pakistan and India. There are branches in Saudi Arabia, United Kingdom, Bangladesh and South East Asia.

-Lashkar-e-Taiba established several training camps in Afghanistan in 1987. Muaskar-e-Taiba and the Muaskar-e-Aqsa were established in two providences. We have one detainee in the Guantanamo Bay prison who reportedly attended these training camps. In 2002, Abu Zubaydah, a senior al-Qaida member was captured at a Lashkar-e-Taiba safe house. His capture indicates perhaps Lashkar-e-Taiba is a supporter of the al-Qaida. In 2003, 11 Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists were arrested in Virginia.
