Annan shocked, indignant 

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan expressed "shock and indignation" at today's Madrid bombings.

When was the last time a U.N. official expressed the same sentiment after a bombing in Israel?

By the way, The Command Post is doing an outstanding job of staying on top of the Madrid bombing story. Head over there for much of the latest info.

UPDATE: It didn't take long for someone on the left to start yapping about how bad this bombing is for the Spanish "progressives." You know, Billmon, maybe if "progressives" weren't such pantywaists about confronting danger, you wouldn't be so afraid of the right gaining political viability when terrorists strike. It boils down to one thing: People's perceptions about the best way to confront terror. Are trials, debates, and UN resolutions the best approach, or is it better to shut the terrorists down financially, cut off their communications, pin them down physically and then eliminate them? I know what the terrorists prefer.
