Attorney general: US can prosecute Mumbai gunman

US Attorney General Michael Mukasey said Wednesday the United States would have jurisdiction to prosecute the surviving gunman captured during the deadly attack in Mumbai, India, where six Americans died. But he did not say whether there are plans to do so. Mukasey also said he did not believe the US was more vulnerable to a terrorist attack during the presidential transition period, although security will be heavy for President-elect Barack Obama's inauguration. "Terrorists will strike when they feel the moment is right, not according to the political calendar," he said. The United States has "all of the surveillance techniques we need to keep us safe," Mukasey added.
