Kevin Drum points to a nice concise write-up on the Madrid bombings. In 709 words, Robert Garcia Tagorda covers all of what seem to me to be the important points:
- the reasons to suspect al-Qaida rather than the Basque separatist group, ETA;
- the suspect van found near Madrid with detonators and an Arabic audio tape;
- the letter which claims al-Qaida responsibility for the bombings; and
- the astonishing fact that the U.N. Security Council has already passed a resolution condemning the ETA.
