Al-Qaeda behind Madrid massacre?

Al-Qaeda behind Madrid massacre? One piece of evidence I've only seen mentioned in Norway is a document a terrorist research group at the Norwegian Defense Research Establishment found on an Islamist website. The document surveys strategies for forcing the coalition out of Iraq. It mentions Spain as a convenient target, and the election this week as a convenient time to carry it out

And how is this thread different from this Al Qaeda thread
of a few hours ago ... ? The blog link itself is hardly best of the web.

Maybe it was the Homo/Islamofascist Alliance.

The complete text
With this advisory:
It should be noted that the Abu Hafs Al-Masri Brigades claimed responsibility for the August 2003 blackout in the U.S. (which was a large-scale technical failure), calling it "Operation Quick Lightning in the Land of the Tyrant of This Generation."

Thanks for the link homunculus, I found it rather amusing but then again some will see this warping of the truth as a call to arms.
