Kevin Drum, a blogger gone bigtime, points out something astounding in Washington Monthly.
Seems that the Aznar Government of Spain not only spread misinformation about who was responsible for the attack, they misled the German federal criminal bureau.
"Its federal criminal bureau said the Spanish authorities intentionally withheld information and misled German officials over the explosives used in the Madrid bombings. The Spanish conservative government had insisted the Goma 2 Eco dynamite for the explosives had been frequently used by Eta, the Basque separatist movement. On Monday, it admitted that was not the case."
So the Government of Spain actively impeded an investigation into a terrorist attack.
But voted them out is appeasing terrorists.
