Spain Airport Bombing

I’m not a terrorism expert but I do read. Although many may up on this bombing as an Al Qaeda bombing, I don’t think so. At least the early reports are not consistent with the Al Qaeda MO. This was a single bomb with warning. Al Qaeda likes multiple bombs with no specific warning. We’ll need more information. Still the world has to get a handle on this kind of random violence.

Update from (1/2/06):

Spain has blamed a powerful bomb explosion Saturday at the country’s busiest airport on Basque separatist group ETA, declaring it a violation of a nine-month cease-fire.

The bomb at Barajas International Airport is “absolutely incompatible with the permanent cease-fire that ETA declared nine months ago,” Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero said during a nationally televised news conference.

He ordered the government to halt any peace efforts, but he declined to say that the attack “breaks the cease-fire,” which was the way Interior Minister Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba described it to reporters a few hours earlier. (more…)

LD – Culture of Corruption

I have had this vid for some time.  I just haven’t had time to post it.  Lou Dobbs is investigating the culture of corruption in Washington.  The culture really isn’t a Republican thing although they really perfected it.  Both R’s and Dem’s have shown that they can be bought.  Lou Dobbs has been looking out of the little guy, the average Joe.  I think for the most part he is 100% correct.  Corporate America has cut out the middle class.  They haven’t shared the wealth.  They have bought silence from Congress. This is a nice report.  (relatively poor quality.  sorry.)
