Keystone Terrorists part 2

I had assumed these guys were hardened and knowingly on a suicide mission. It would seem instead that they had the teenage male's presumption of invulnerability: (emphasis mine)

Kasab has allegedly revealed that their plan was to take hostages at the Taj hotel, Oberoi Hotel and Nariman House and then use them to escape from the city, he added.

While there is every reason for the captured terrorist to lie, this was also interesting:

According to a Mumbai crime branch official, the ten terrorists had not come to Mumbai before this to conduct any 'recce' and they had learnt about the locations with the help of Google Earth.

These boys sound less and less sophisticated and more and more stupid.
