The man tapped to scout targets for the November 2008 Mumbai terror attacks — a slaughter that left 166 people dead, including six Americans — had the basics required by Lashkar-i-Taiba, the Islamic militant group he joined in 2002.

FRONTLINE and ProPublica investigate the mysterious circumstances behind David Headley’s rise from heroin dealer and U.S. government informant to plotter of the 2008 attack on Mumbai.
