You're Tom Clancy, aren't you ?Not only MI5 but the US, NATO, and the EU. Omagh was a catalyst to wind up 'the Troubles' ahead of the 'War on Terror'. You couldn't have a proper WOT if you had terrorists in your backyard, especially if they weren't dark-skinned Muslims from exotic lands (containing 'our' oil).
A fact is where something was last night, intelligence is where it's going to be tomorrow night.
Facts can be based on intelligence but intelligence are not facts.
Republicans killed 29 people on Saturday 15 August 1998, no one else.
The US/UK Govt get self righteous over marijuana."They didnt go to the PSNI.
They are wrongly accused of drug dealing and also condemned for combatting drugs.
Damned if they do, and damned if they dont.
You're way off topic by the way."
Oh yes those poor terrorist fronts, they have it so tough. Also don't you think that it's a bit much for the front of a terrorist org that killed 31 people (I include the two eight month yro infants that died) to get all self righteous about marijuana? They were probably just taking out the competition anyway.
"Republicans killed 29 people on Saturday 15 August 1998, no one else."
Definitely however I'm open to the possiblity that MI5 was pulling their strings.
they also had pinpoint tracking on the car for weeks, but couldnt locate it after the warnings were delivered.Jumping to conclusions with bias is unhelpful. You have provided no facts.
One fact is that the brits monitored the phone calls of the bombers that day. They had the information at hand to prevent any bombing taking place.
They didn't prevent it.
They have questions to answer.
There was no whataboutery mentioned. The truth is that RIRA bombed Omagh. The telephone monitoring is a complete red herring.Try and keep a civil tongue in your head, you do not impress me. I am offloading no blame or responsibility - I would just like to get to the truth and let everyone take whatever blame or praise as appropriate. If you wanted the truth you would support that instead of yet again trying to obfuscate and indulge in whataboutery.
Of course the Omagh investigation was a whitewash, the peelers were even proven to have tampered with and fabricated evidence during the Hoey trial.I have deep reservations about the role of the British in the Omagh atrocity, in fact I do believe that they actively allowed the atrocity to occur. Now we hear that Nuala O'Loan has reservations on the Gibson Report into the bombing. Was the report a whitewash ? I believe so.
BBC NEWS | UK | Northern Ireland | O'Loan says Omagh findings 'odd'
Do you deny that the British were involved in bombing Dublin and Monaghan?Irish Republicans believe what they want to believe and even if they don't believe, they say it anyway and they keep saying it with the hope that fools around the world will start to believe their lies. The only people responsible for The Omagh slaughter were Irish Republicans. End of.
New evidence will be presented to the government in Britain next month, the article claims.Fresh evidence that police could have intercepted the Omagh bombers before they committed the atrocity has been uncovered in a new independent inquiry, victims’ relatives have claimed.
Bereaved families who commissioned the report said it has identified “hard proof” that officers on both sides of the Border were involved in a live operation on the day of the attack.
“This is new evidence that hasn’t been made public before.” He [Aiden Gallagher's father] added: “We also have evidence that public officials lied to the general public about the Omagh bombing.
Police accused over Omagh bombing - The Irish Times - Fri, May 11, 2012
With an attitude like that, what are you hiding.Am I **** trying to cloud the issue!
Scrabbling around trying to offload the blame - or responsiblity if you will - onto anyone except RIRA is trying to cloud the issue.
No-one with a gun or bomb after 1972, the date of the IRA ceacefire, has any right to do anything except STFU and take their lumps. The Brits did not bomb Omagh.
