Errors have been made by the FBI who claimed that Brandon Mayfields
fingerprint was linked to the Madrid bombing, that stated that they were
100% correct and it was an "absolutely incontrovertible match"; but they
were wrong. The Spanish police showed the FBI were wrong, the US DoJ
criticized the FBI, and the FBI had to pay Brandon Mayfield $2 million in
2006.
