Big surprise here. “A two-year investigation into the Madrid train bombings concludes that the Islamic terrorists who carried out the blasts were homegrown radicals acting alone rather than at the behest of Osama bin Laden’s al-Qaida network, two senior intelligence officials? told the Associated Press.
