FBI Fearful of Madrid-style Subway Bombings

NY Daily News reports that the FBI is fearful of bombings or other terror acts similar to the 2004 Madrid subway bombings.

The FBI’s elite Hostage Rescue Team arrived in New York in anticipation of the offensive to thwart a Denver-based terror cell with ties to Al Qaeda, police sources told the Daily News.

Another source said an earlier raid uncovered nine backpacks and cell phones, raising memories of the March 2004 bombings in Madrid.

If the HRT is called in, things aren’t in the “planning” or “observation” phase.
