The CIA has declassified documents showing that death squads which carried out dozens of murders and attacks in 1980s Spain were set up with the agreement of then-prime minister Felipe González himself, leader of the Spanish Socialist government. These extra-judicial hit squads were known as the GAL (Antiterrorist Liberation Groups) and they were created during Spain’s democratic era, in a move which the American intelligence agency refers to as an “unorthodox strategy” by the government.

One of the declassified CIA documents, as reported by newspaper La Razón, states: “Felipe González has agreed to the creation of a group of mercenaries, to combat terrorists outside the law”.
