Madrid bomb case against lawyer tossed / FBI admits mistake in saying fingerprints at scene were his

You must be joking:

A federal judge threw out the case Monday against an American lawyer jailed for two weeks as a material witness in the Madrid train bombing, after the FBI said it had mistakenly matched his fingerprints with prints on a plastic bag found near the scene of the deadly attacks in March.

This is seriously fucked up – can they not get anything right? The victim in all this sums it up well:

“This is a serious infringement on our civil liberties,” Mayfield said. “In a climate of fear, this war on terrorism has gone to the extreme, and innocent people are victims as a result.”
