Spain's govt 'twisted' bombings for gains - report
http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20050622/wl_nm/spain_commiss...

MADRID (Reuters) - Spain's previous center-right government "manipulated and twisted" the Madrid train bombings of March 2004 in a bid to salvage general elections three days later, a parliamentary commission found on Wednesday.

In a 200-page report after a year of bitter wrangling, the commission accused Jose Maria Aznar's Popular Party (PP) government of ignoring police warnings that its support for the
Iraq war increased the threat from Islamic terrorism in Spain.

2. I can't believe an elected government would do such a thing!
:sarcasm:

Seems to be a common characteristic among right wingers. Spaniards were wise to it; what's our excuse?
