Your Danish Cartoons Hangover Update

* the idea popular in India and in western conservative circles that Mickey Mouse Plot co-conspirator and Mumbai Massacre advance scout David Coleman Headley is an American intelligence operative remains and perhaps has intensified since Headley's guilty plea. Here's a typical article. I suppose it's possible, although the articles I've read so far sound to me like parents trying to rattle their teenager into a confession by tossing out ideas more than journalists putting two and two together.

* there's a bunch of stuff up today on a Chicago cab driver named Raja Lahrasib Khan accused of funneling money to al-Qaida operatives. There's nothing that links this man to David Coleman Headley or Tahawwur Hussain Rana except that they happened to have the same contact, Ilyas Kashmiri.

* here's an aspect to the original Danish Cartoons Controvery that I hadn't hear of before, one reason being that it's totally minor and off the beaten track: how to respond caused a split between popular Islamic televangelists.
