    Dow Chemicals pushed, ordered Indian govt

    "It is critical [that] the government of India speaks in one voice on issues of foreign direct investment and sustained domestic economic growth. We value your direct assistance in ensuring that all ministries operate on the basis of messages we have received from the Prime Minister himself," says Liveris’ letter, dated October 2008.

    "We remain committed to exploring further investment in India but need your support and actions to resolve these issues. We look for tangible evidence of government action in the next 30 days," Liveris writes in the letter, copies of which are available with Outlook and CNN-IBN.

    The Mitrokhin Archives mention that India was the easiest country to penetrate for any spy. It was as if the entire country was on sale.

    But if you check the western intel guys, they say that India was a very hard country to penetrate. The successful conduction of the 98 nuke tests is a testament to that.

    i think the archives talk about a period in the 70,s with the cold war at its peak at that time it was a different scenerio presently things have changed i guess now its more like a penetrating the media to change public opinion for or against

    15000 killed in Bhopal, 3000 in Gujarat. Both are a kind of murder only.

    Not really. Especially since they were detected twice before by US intelligence, and India had to back off. And what western intel guys said India is a hard country to penetrate? I'm curious.

    How is that a penetration of India by spies? Any idiot can make a bomb these days and if brainwashed enough can plant it anywhere.

    Bhopal is a genocide and Congress let away the US company. And Gujarat is nothing compared to Bhopal

    This means intelligence agency is not working properly.

    Still doesnt answer my question on how does a secular or fundamentalist credential of a party comes into the picture in this thread and in the bhopal case.

    There are espionage cases everywhere. We are talking in general about how easy or not it is for a foreign spy network to penetrate India.
