Spanish nutty conspiracy theory

The latest fun out of Spain concerning the Madrid bombings is a right-wing conspiracy theory from one of the accused, a Spaniard named Jose Emilio Suarez, who allegedly supplied much of the explosive material.  He is now saying the attack was actually a Socialist coup d’etat.  Apparently the Socialists knew that the Conservatives would attempt to exploit the attacks as a political tactic, and, in the face of all evidence to the contrary, persist in blaming it on the ETA, and appear to be more concerned with winning the election using the ‘war on terror’ trick than actually protecting the Spanish people, thus angering the Spanish voters and sweeping the Socialists to victory.  I just wish the socialists around here were half as smart. 

Jose Emilio Suarez is one in a long line of police informants who have played major roles in the most notable conspiracies of the past fifty years.
