Faulty Intelligence - Not the Spanish, the Republicans 

The New York Times > International > Europe > Blast Suspects in Madrid Were Plotting Second Attack:
The group believed to be responsible for the Madrid train bombings in March had been planning another major attack, an Interior Ministry official said Thursday.
The official said the plot was uncovered by police officers searching the ruins of an apartment destroyed last Saturday when at least six of the suspected bombers blew themselves up to avoid capture by the police.
"They were planning to commit an attack, although we are just speculating about the target," the official, who declined to be identified, said in a telephone interview. "They were clearly seeking to kill large numbers of people in a place like a shopping center."
Wait, how can that be? I thought the terrorists had been appeased by the election which removed the PP from power and installed an administration less sympathetic to Bush and the war in Iraq?

Hmmm? Could it be that the rightwing analysis was wrong again? Why, yes. Yes, I believe that might be exactly it.
