My Firefox tabs are buckling under a pile of first-class terrorism analysis, so, in the spirit of international co-operation, I thought I’d share:

“How Gadgets Helped Mumbai Attackers” — A technology rundown by the war geeks of Wired’s Danger Room.
“The lessons of Mumbai” — Paul Rogers points out that hitting soft targets is hardly an innovation.
“Lessons from Mumbai” — Bruce Schneier says the attacks were surprisingly ineffective.
“LeT’s Not Jump the Gun” — At CJR, Mr. Foust talks like me, but better.
India’s Naxalite Rage — A wildly imaginative security blog by Shlok Vaidya.
Think Tank — The New Yorker’s Steve Coll recalls his encounter with LeT.
