Yes, but with that exposure will come the exposure of British intelligence officers who facilitated them. If all we read about stakeknife (because that's how its actually spelled - the missing of these little details often throw a little light on the motives of the poster... Like those posters who continually drag up Gerry (sic) McCabe) is true, not to mention various other agents both Republican and loyalist, then the British government is complicit in a couple of hundred murders. Why else do you think this has been let wither on the vine? It's also why perjury as opposed to murder is the charge, rather than exposing British intelligence assets, just proof of lying under oath is required.
Nobody misspelled Stakeknife in this thread yet. There was a joke about steak. I think spelling in itself is a bit overrated as an argument anyway. People who know a lot about a subject can still be very wrong about it.

One of the things that gets me about the " Brits ran the IRA " conspiracy theorists, is that when they are accused of running the loyalists to commit atrocities the same crowd will deny it ever happened.
You put yourself about on this site as having great insight into the workings of SF/IRA present and past. Do you think Saint Martin of Derry will come out of this with his halo missing?

You have to admit though, spelling comes in handy when you want someone to understand what you are writing. Othher than dat miner dtale I tinc it iss overwrated.

Paul Williams must have written this one :lol: " alleged ..... accused .... could .... a senior UK police office "

"An alleged British secret agent in the IRA who is accused of being linked to at least 20 murders while working for military intelligence could be charged with perjury for denying in court he was a spy, a senior UK police officer has told the Guardian. "

Ah yes, a spook story from the Brit press, now Crumbs and Rainmaker will tell us that every member of the IRA was in fact a British double agent !!!
Why did the PIRA murder so many spies and informers?

They were riddled and they knew it.

25 years of conflict, tens of thousands of bombings and shootings, but P Donaldson knew about them all and the Brits let them go ahead for 25 years to bring about the Good Friday Agreement.
They knew when certain PIRA operations were going to happen. Eg Loughall

Couldnt have happened without inside info.

Neither side was likely to have applied the Queensbury rules as they operated. Lives were quite cheap when it came to protecting their sordid activities.

More informers were shot dead in the first 6 months of the War Of Independence than in the 27 odd years of the conflict in the North.Fact.

The latest move to bring Steak back on to the menu will prove more than interesting within Sinn Fein. Just who are the senior figures in Sinn Fein that Scapp might have embarrassing information on? Surely Peadar Tobin isn't being undermined from without again?

That's nice to see. An English Chief Constable with enough faith in the system to think that a British agent is going to be prosecuted and reveal all he knows about British dirty tricks in the process.

Brings a tear to the eye of this jaded old cynic.

Very true, they brits used divide and conquer tactics through out their empire....they were good at that....They bought the weak minded and the greedy and used them as cannon fodder to keep their empire intact.....It would be interesting to know who the bought in the security forces south of the border to ensure safe passage for the Dublin and Monaghan bombers.. Without doubt they had spy's and informers in the IRA and Irish political parties throughout the most recent conflict as they had in all conflicts involving the fight for Irish freedom.....Opening up the files wont happen now just as it didn't happen in the 1920's....It is my opinion that others rather than SF/IRA would be most worried...

Amazing......30 plus posts and not a mention of the Littlejohns and the worst atrocity in all of the troubles....Dublin/Monaghan.


Anyways, must be an election in the wind, last time it was rumoured the AH who created this thread created a thread at that time, made the usual spurious allegations about SF, and all without a shred of evidence after 1000 posts.

I hope he had the sense not to retire to Donegal .....
Or to go to a Fianna Fail party in Offaly dressed as a priest!
