Some more info about this that proves some of the points in this thread.


al-Qaida memo

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4647682/

What’s more, the document boasts about previous violence works, noting that the Madrid bombings, which killed 191 last month, toppled the Spanish government and led to a decision to remove all Spanish troops from Iraq.

“Al-Qaida learned that it was able to carry out an operation that would have an immediate political impact and change the position of a country,” Venzke said.

Ben Venzke is American right?

The fact is that nobody will ever know if Al Qaeda influenced the political vote, because it would take a new vote of the Spanish Electorate asking

Did you change your mind regarding your vote after the elections.

Let's imagine that Kerry is massively ahead in the American polls at the moment and that even more people have said they will not vote for Bush. The US gets bombed three days before election and Bush get's voted out. You can't say they've bowed to pressure really can you?

The article I quoted was about Spain pulling out of Iraq, not about the vote. Anyways Al-Qaida is the one who see's it as a victory.
