What exactly is SF's stance on this issue? I'd say the SF leadership would love to come out and condemn it but they can't due to grassroots pressure esp in the north. I know shinners hate being asked about this because they need to toe the party line carefully. Personnally I don't understand all the fuss. Thousands of people were killed during the troubles, why is the life of one guard so exceptional that the terms of the GFA don't apply? I myself believe the methods of the provos were wrong and the Gerry McCabe incident should never have occurred but there is alot of hypocracy from political establishment over the treatment of his killers.
