Officials: Mumbai terrorists took LSD and cocaine

“We found injections containing traces of cocaine and LSD left behind by the terrorists and later found drugs in their blood,” said one official.

This is perhaps one of the most bizarre stories yet, that the Mumbai terrorists took LSD and cocaine to stay awake. Cocaine, maybe. But the effects don’t last long, so you need more soon. Amphetamines would be a much better choice as they last for several hours. As for LSD, this is nonsensical. You really don’t want to get distracted by watching all the groovy patterns as the walls are melting while being on the lookout for security forces trying to kill you.

Just one more bizarre story in a terrorist attack that still makes little sense. Maybe the terrorists were deranged in the sense that Jim Jones and Aum Shinrikyo were, so trying to make sense of their lunacies is not possible.
