Washington: Ajmal Kasab, the lone surviving terrorist involved in the 2008 Mumbai attacks who has been hanged to death, received due process of law in a full and transparent trial, the US said on Thursday, asserting that it wants to see the terrorists behind 26/11 brought to justice.

"We've said before that we welcome steps towards justice in the Mumbai attacks. We've said many times before that we want to see the terrorists behind these attacks brought to justice," State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters here.

"My understanding is that he received due process in a full and transparent trial and the sentence was carried out," Toner said in response to a question. The Washington Post also praised the Indian Government for carrying out this execution in secrecy.

"In a country where few things remain secret, where everything is argued in public, and where courts take decades to complete trials, Kasab's swift hanging was a welcome surprise for many," the daily said.

25-year old Kasab was hanged at 7.30 am in the Yerawada central prison in Pune on Wednesday.

    Ajmal was a royal guest of Congress. Before becoming terrorist he was earning Rs. 150 after 8 hours of hard work in Pakistan. Our pro Muslim government spent Rs. 50 crores in less than 4 years in feeding him continental food. This is a joke with the security people who sacrificed their life in facing terrorists. NSG commandos who were involved in the operation have been punished for killing and capturing terrorists. MEERA BHARAT MAHAN. Madan Lal Gupta, Harianawala

    Kasab was hanged in a hurry to propitiate the Shiv Sena just as two girls were arrested for a Facebook post criticizing the Mumbai shut-down at Thackeray's death to propitiate the Shiv Sena. (I have shown Indian governments are proxies for the CIA & India's RAW participated, with Pakistan's ISI, in the Mumbai killings). During Thackeray's 1992 violence against Muslims that killed about a thousand, I wrote to the press criticizing it at which Thackeray said "I have no respect for intellectuals" but stopped the violence. His bravery, like other Indians', was limited to fighting other non-white people while they continue to pay tributes to the British -- an example is in Ajay Shukla's defence blog of November 17 '12 -- who killed over ten million Indians -- by guns and sword, not famines -- in just ten years after 1857. Citing benefits of refrigeration and supply chains to farmers from Foreign Investment is like citing benefits from railroads East India Company will build; can't do anything ourselves, though Indian companies are spending tens of billions of dollars every year on buying Western companies which benefits India not at all by way of jobs or technology development and adds to the loot of India, depriving India of this investment. I repeat: India's population is a mountain of S-H-I-T. Bal Thackeray was a particle of S-H-I-T in this mountain of S-H-I-T. See IndiasTraitorGovtAndMediaDOTblogspotDOTcom
