The newspaper El Pais has put Spain in the spotlight of Islamic terrorism after broadcasting a video of the alleged torture of an Iraqi detainee in 2004 at the military base in Diwaniya by soldiers of the Spanish Armed Forces.
The Ministry of Defence has pledged to investigate the veracity of the video that, if true, would be the first proven case of abuse of the Spanish Army in an international mission.
The spread of this video does not benefit Spain at all, as it is again targeted by Islamic terrorism. It seems that the journal has taken this material from the so-called ‘Wikileaks papers’.
