ABSTRACT
The article focuses on issues related to the Spanish government persistently blaming the Basque terrorists of ETA for the bombings in Madrid, Spain, on March 11, 2004. Former Spanish Prime Minister José Aznar was a supporter of the war in Iraq, which 90% of Spaniards opposed. The bombs were planted just before the March 14, 2004, elections in Spain. Aznar's government had consistently blamed the Basque for the bombings even after news broke of an al-Qaeda connection.
