Al Qaeda Link to Madrid Attack

The group responsible for the Madrid bombing which has claimed the lives of more than 190 people, and injured another 1,400 remains in doubt. Spanish officials seemed confident earlier today that the Basque separatist group ETA was responsible. But, a letter has been received taking responsibility that is purportedly from an Al Qaeda group.

Did the two groups collaborate? It doesn't seem likely but it is not being ruled out either. Bin Laden has previously mentioned Spain as a country that could be attacked. It would be a very disturbing development, according to one analyst we heard on CNN.

Al Qaeda also sent a letter to a newspaper today saying that another attack on the U.S is "90% ready."

We've closed the comments to our earlier thread on the Spain bombing, so as to move on to the new developments.
