Underachieving Sophisticates

The level of failure is becoming more and more evident.

The only terrorist captured alive after the Mumbai massacre has given police the first full account of the extraordinary events that led to it – revealing he was ordered to ‘kill until the last breath’.

Apparently the recruiting was not entirely perfect.
the attacks were meticulously planned six months ago and were intended to kill 5,000 people.

Maybe not so meticulously. Or perhaps the estimating skills were deficient.
Mercifully, the group, armed with plastic explosives, underestimated the strength of the 105-year-old building’s solid foundations.

Sophistication indeed!
Imagine what might have been the outcome if the local police had been willing to shoot.
