Official narrative

On March 11, 2004, around 7:40 a.m., ten bombs exploded on four trains in the space of a few minutes. This was carried out by Muslim bombers organised by Al Qaeda. The date appears to have been carefully selected because the events took place just three days before the general elections in which the People’s Party (of the political right) of outgoing President José María Aznar was presented as the favorite.[1]

Alternative opinions

In 2009, Global Research reported that "According to El Pais (center-left Atlanticist newspaper), there are no legitimate doubts about the Islamist theory, while for El Mundo' (center-right nationalist newspaper) the Islamist theory is nothing more than a police set-up." The Spanish press, led by the newspaper El Mundo has been calling the official narrative into question.[1]

Related circumstances

NATO Secretary General, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, described it as a "coincidence" that, on 4 March 2004, there was an anti-terrorist exercise (CMX-04) in Madrid, which anticipated killing 200 people, finishing just a few hours before the bombings. He reportedly visited Madrid on 1 March 2004, just 3 days before the attack.[2]

The Official Culprit

Al-QaedaA sketchy term that has been repeated endlessly by the corporate media. Its close connections to Western intelligence agencies are never examined. "The Brotherhood" of the modern era.
