Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed walks free

Jamatud Dawa Chief Hafiz Saeed
It was in 2012 that the U.S. announced its offer of $10 million reward "for information that brings Saeed to justice", Nauert mentioned.
Saeed was placed under house arrest in Lahore, Pakistan, in January, in keeping with Pakistan's antiterrorism laws. I will gather the people from across the country for the cause of Kashmir. "Thank God, we were vindicated".
A spokesman for Saeed hailed the release as a "victory of truth", according to the AP, calling the allegations against him "baseless".
Saeed ran the Jamaat-Ud-Dawa organization (Party of the Faith), which is thought to be a front for the Lashkar-e-Tayyaba militant group. Pakistan officially banned the Lashkar-e-Taiba in 2002.
Saeed has repeatedly denied involvement but had previously been detained twice briefly following the attacks. Four aides had already been released.
Saeed had been under house arrest largely because of pressure from the Paris-based Financial Action Task Force that tracks terror financing.
"Saeed's release, after Pakistan's failure to prosecute or charge him, sends a deeply troubling message about Pakistan's commitment to combatting global terrorism and belies Pakistani claims that it will not provide sanctuary for terrorists on its soil", Sanders said.
As the Indian city of Mumbai commemorated the 2008 terror attacks that left 168 people dead, relatives of the victims said Sunday that they're angry Pakistan has released a militant linked to the massacre.
Indian soldiers battle militants near the Taj Mahal hotel in Mumbai on November 29, 2008. He has been designated a terrorist by the U.S. Justice Department.
The move to free Saeed infuriated officials in India and the USA, who have urged Pakistan to punish those responsible for the Mumbai attacks.
Often a guest on conservative television talks shows, the popular jihadist still attracts large crowds with his anti-American and anti-Indian diatribes in rallies and protests.
"Pakistan condemns and opposes all forms of terrorism by any individual or group".
These include elements of the deadly Haqqani network in Afghanistan, the leadership of the Afghan Taliban, as well as Lashkar-e-Tayyaba.
Pakistan has released a militant wanted by US authorities from house arrest, after a court ordered an end to his detention.
"This is a positive moment for our country's relationship with Pakistan", President Donald Trump said in a statement after Coleman was freed. He went on to say that Islamabad's cooperation was "a sign that it is honoring America's wishes for it to do more to provide security in the region". "In some sense, this justifies the Trump administration's harder approach on Pakistan". "They play everyone, whether it's China or the terrorists or us". Betrayal and disrespect-and much worse.
