What was the cause of New Year's bombings: Internal Politics or Terrorism from South?

Blasts: conflicting accounts by agencies

The investigation into the New Year's Eve bombings has become complicated and the public confused by conflicting accounts and rivalry among the three law enforcement agencies involved.

Suggestions that a man with links to violence in the South was involved have further muddied the waters.

The Department of Special Investigation (DSI) yesterday denied leaking a photograph identifying a man implicated as one of three suspects in the attacks.

DSI director-general Sunai Manomai-udom said his agency should be the only one involved in the investigation. It is armed with special powers authorising it to second members of other agencies and overseas personnel, operate telephone taps and infiltrate crime syndicates.

I always thought it was a military or police faction linked to Thaksin/Chavalit. Maybe I am wrong. But it is unusual that Islamic terrorists wouldn't take responsibility.
