Barack Obama's Indian delegation 'books 800 rooms in Mumbai'

Barack Obama and his travelling delegation have book at least 800 rooms for the president's trip to Mumbai, according to reports, including the entire Taj Mahal hotel.

The president, who is scheduled to set off on a twice-postponed Asian tour with his wife Michelle after next week's midterms, has reportedly block-booked all 570 rooms in the Taj Mahal hotel as a security measure. On top of that, US navy ships will also be deployed, as the president is staying in a hotel by the ocean.
The 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks which claimed at least 173 lives, ended with a siege at the Taj Mahal hotel.

"Obama's contingent is huge," a senior Indian security official told the newspaper. "There are two jumbo jets coming along with Air Force One, which will be flanked by security jets. The President's convoy has 45 cars."
The Economic Times also reported that Mr Obama's delegation is so large that another 300 rooms have reportedly been booked in other luxury Mumbai hotels.
The scale and cost of the visit is certain to provoke criticism from Mr Obama's Republican foes in the US at a time when the country is mired in economic difficulties, with unemployment standing at nearly 10 per cent.
The report also claimed Mrs Obama has been invited to visit Mumbai's red-light district, the largest in the world, to meet prostitutes and hear about their lives.

This is precisely why I posted this article. My opinion is, or could be...if there are 2 Jumbo jets and Air Force One, there could be troops in those jets that will be closer to Pakistan. Also, the battle ships that are suppose to be protecting him, this too could be an excuse to get our ships nearer to Pakistan. Just my opinion.
It could be possible that the US may be targeting Pakistan. Our drones fly over the Afganistan/Pakistani border daily. Pakistan has nukes.

As for renting out the entire Taj Mahal Hotel...500+ rooms, I have no idea who will stay in them. Could be for security reasons, or maybe whats left of his executive branch is with him. The rest of the rooms where rented in other hotels.

I've been looking for further information on this. When I find it, I will post it. If you remember, the Taj Mahal was targeted by terrorists a few years ago. In my opinion, I believe Blackwater staged that attack. So, now they have the excuse for extra security.

why would the president go anywhere near a country he was going to strike? Not many people like Obama and I think he goes on too many high profile "vacations". Stay in your country and work on the problem here.

unfortunately, i'm not so sure he doesn't have the power to start a war.
i highly doubt he wouldn't be tipped off if they were going to get rid of him. he's probably reading this right now.
