Mayfield Released - Material Witness Powers Abused
Critics Galvanized by Oregon Lawyer's Case
Brandon Mayfield, who was detained as a material witness of the Spain bombings, was released. It is a "huge embarrassment," reflecting "incompetence," and the federal investigators "put their tails between their legs" and ran. The FBI claims fingerprints found on some of the detonators belong to Mayfield, while Spanish investigators have fingered another man. Mayfield has not left the United States in over a decade.
