He has been on the phone today to make sure the guy is still ok.

My prayers are with the families of the injured and dead and for a quick resolution to this.
So scary and sad. I hope his colleague is OK physically as well as mentally. I heard from my company that they are evacuating all Americans, British and Aussies (whom are the main 3 targeted). I'm not sure how true this is since there doesn't seem to be much order in the city.

CNN keeps saying 1 American confirmed dead, 3 confirmed injured. I don't want to speculate but has anyone heard anything about the nationalities of the killed?

Two aussies are confirmed dead with the possibility of more. I also recall reading that a Japanese man was killed. This has been front page news in Australia since it started. It'll be interesting when the results of investigations come out - the Indian government are already blaming Pakistan as one of the people it captured has admitted to being Pakistani and a member of a terrorist group that operates out of Pakistan with supposed Pakistani government baking. India has been having these sorts of attacks for many years but since the targets were international people supposedly to disrupt foreign investment into India, there will be international attention on the Pakistan/India situation now.

But if these terrorists were to come to America they can easily attack masses on the streets of major US cities or in shopping centers and schools. There are people within America....unassimilated immigrants, Muslim converts, liberal traitors, hippies, socialists....who hate this country and would harm Americans on behalf of foreign countries and religions. Hopefully our future President has TRULY moved on from the days when he sympathized with such people.....radicals, terrorists and racists like Ayers, Wright and Farrakhna.
