The vilification of Jose Maria Aznar in the leftist media totally obscures the point that here was a politician who grasped the Islamist threat to our global society. In an interview with Fox News, here is a great quote;

QUESTION: Why did you decide to join President Bush, to join the coalition and go into Iraq, despite overwhelming opposition in your country?

AZNAR : Because the task of a political leader is to do what he believes is better for his country. Sometimes the public opinion is in favor; sometimes the public opinion needs a little bit more time to understand things. I mean, how many British supported Churchill when he said that Hitler was a threat? How many people in how many countries have understood the threats or their leaders at a particular moment in time? It is, of course, much better to get as much support as possible, but a political leader has a responsibility. A good political leader meets his responsibility.

Obviously this sort of resolute political leadership was a threat to Al Qu'eda and any other scumbag terrorists such as ETA. The frenzy that the Spanish media went into post 11/3 ensured that Aznar was put to the wall, and the appeasing Zapatero brought in to beg for mercy from Bin Laden.
