A Chicago man charged with scheming to launch a terrorist attack on a Danish newspaper also discussed a possible attack against a military college in India and advised a member of a Pakistan-based terrorist group on how to slip people into the US, prosecutors said Tuesday. Federal prosecutors said in court papers that Chicago businessman Tahawwur Rana in September talked with another man charged in the case about designating the National Defense College of India as among possible targets they might pursue. "Recorded conversations involving the defendant, e-mails and other documentary evidence demonstrate that the defendant conspired to provide and did provide material support to the conspiracy," prosecutors said in court papers. Rana, 48, and another man, David Headley, 49, are charged with conspiring to attack the Copenhagen newspaper Jyllands-Posten, which sparked outrage in much of the Muslim world in 2005 by publishing 12 cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.
