In Spain, 3/11 = 9/11 

Today, Spain has suffered the worst terror attack in their history, and the American news media gives it no more than a passing mention.

I can't help but think the American media is afraid that reminding Americans of the dangers of terrorism would bring the issue back to the forefront of our political campaign. If I am correct, then the American press corps should be ashamed of itself.

Four trains were attacked in Madrid by Basque seperatists, a Muslim nation that exists within France and Spain. Spain has been a great ally for the United States, supporting us in both Afghanistan and Iraq. They know all too well the kind of threat the terrorists pose. My prayers are with the Spanish people today.
