This article said that the US had an indictment for this guy, but I am uncertain....did we ever have him in custody, or being followed and watched here in America?

Why do they call these terrorists "masterminds"...they are hardly deserving of the term.

"I think this just gives us a glimpse into what might be happening inside the United States," said retired Air Force Lt. Col. Rick Francona, an NBC News terrorism expert. "We were able to uncover one operation — how many others are out there?"

Like cockroaches in the dark.

Hang on here a sec... are we talking about the same cell that the Feds were trying to investigate a couple of years ago, but that the Portland Mayor and city council decided to protect by actively interfering with and shutting down any cooperation with the feds?

Is that what this is?

The first thing that I thought of when I heard that there was a link between the bombing in Spain and the one in London, was I wonder if the that Oregon guy whose finger print was found in the Spain bombing was involved in this one. They eventually let him off on that, but I never fully believed in his innocence. Now again, I am going to ask is this guy related to the London bombings also?

I'll have to go look up his name.

Here it is. This idiot has got to be tied in to this as well.

Investigators have linked Portland, Ore., lawyer Brandon Mayfield to the Madrid terrorist bombings through a fingerprint lifted from a bag containing detonators discovered near the train station where three of the four bombed trains originated, according to sources in Spain and the United States familiar with the probe.

The bag, which contained cell phone detonators similar to those used in the attack that killed 191 people, was found in a stolen van left in the town of Alcala de Henares. It was parked near a house where police say the bombs were assembled.

Tracing another set of fingerprints found in both the van and the house, as well as the origin of the cell phones, police found a cell phone shop in Madrid owned by Moroccan Jamal Zougam, whom Spanish police describe as the plot's mastermind.

When Spanish investigators were unable to identify one of the fingerprints on the bag in the van, they distributed it to other countries, including the United States, where authorities linked it to Mayfield, said the sources, who asked for anonymity because a judge has imposed a gag order on government officials in the case. Mayfield would have been fingerprinted when he served in the military.

Mayfield, 37, a Kansas native and Army veteran, was detained on a material witness warrant Thursday, the first American linked to the simultaneous bombings of four commuter trains in Madrid. More than 2,000 people were injured in the attack, which helped topple the Spanish government in an election held three days later.

Eighteen Spanish and Moroccan suspects have been arrested.

Mayfield's attorney and relatives say they are baffled by the alleged connection between the mild-mannered Muslim convert and the Madrid plot, noting that Mayfield has not been out of the country in more than 10 years.

Mayfield told Thomas Nelson, the Portland lawyer who is acting as his spokesman, that he had never been to Spain, his passport had expired in October of last year, and he had never met anyone from Morocco.

"Brandon is flabbergasted," Nelson said. "He has no explanation for these charges. He thinks this is crazy." Nelson said he believed that Mayfield's only travel abroad had occurred when he was in the Army and serving in Germany.

Nelson complained about a "calculated leak" from the Justice Department to the news media Thursday about Mayfield, telling KATU-TV in Portland that the information had "led to the frenzy that we see out here that is destroying and disparaging his family, his relationships, his children and his law practice. That leak is devastating. It was unnecessary, unethical and inappropriate."

But federal officials were clearly upset that their investigation was rushed to a premature close. "The plan was to sit on him longer, but it started to get out in a big way, so they had to move," said a law enforcement official who declined to be named, citing the gag order.

Acquaintances in Portland said they did not know of any involvement by Mayfield with militant Islam, though he became tangentially involved with one of six members of a Portland terror cell who pleaded guilty to charges last year. Mayfield defended Jeffrey Leon Battle, who was sentenced to 18 years in prison for conspiring to fight against U.S. troops in Afghanistan, in an unsuccessful bid to retain custody of his son.

"I don't think they knew each other before Mayfield volunteered to represent him in the custody matter," said one defense lawyer involved in the case. The lawyer described Mayfield as "a very, very low-key guy, very quiet."

Mayfield's younger sister, Amy Sikes, said her brother had served about four years in an Army signals unit out of Fort Lewis, Wash., in the late 1980s and had been stationed for about a year in Germany. He met his Egyptian-born wife, Mona, while at Fort Lewis and converted to Islam in 1989, his sister said. The couple have two sons, ages 15 and 10, and a 12-year-old daughter, Sikes said.

"She's the love of his life, and I'm sure that's what got him interested in the Islamic culture," Sikes said of Mayfield's wife. "He's very family oriented and always has been."

"... — how many others are out there?"

Ask the ones responsible for our current border situation.
