is the background of the regime change
Quote from the "Elections in Spain" thread: It gets worse:
As Der Spiegel
and the main evening news on ARD
just report, the spanish security forces deceived at least their german counterparts by providing false information
about the attack, in order to push the ETA theory. Even our interior minister went public officially with this false information fed to him.
The german BKA (Bundeskriminalamt - federal criminal investigation agency) received misleading information about the explosive material and about the igniters; The BKA was told to "expect new information on monday"
the spanish elections.
A BKA spokesperson said that such misleading information among allied security services would have been "beyond imagination"
until now. They´re pretty shocked.
In short: The safety of (at least!) the german population was knowingly put at risk
by the Aznar government in the hope it would have helped them win the election! We were just lucky
that no critical decisions were based on the false information. (Were the other nations´ services lied to as well? The american ones? The french? The british? What other information was false before?)
I can only hope that Aznar and his ilk will face criminal prosecution
for such a blatant breach of protocol and of the inter-service trust that´s absolutely essential for an effective prosecution of the terrorists.
Or should every official security information be second-guessed
in the future?? ("Can we trust this information? Let´s check other sources first!")
This can cost lives
If anybody still believes that the ousting of this government was "a victory of the terrorists"
- think again
