HUMAN BOMBS..

By David Vance On April 26th, 2012

Do you think that this will help – or hinder-  the chances of McGuinness getting a….cough… Nobel Peace Prize?

Martin McGuinness authorised human bomb attacks against the Army in Northern Ireland, the Smithwick Tribunal has heard. The Dublin tribunal is investigating potential Garda collusion with the IRA in the murders of RUC Chief Superintendent Harry Breen and Superintendent Bob Buchanan in 1989. The witness, Martin Ingram repeated his accusation that Mr McGuinness was still in the IRA and authorised operations long after he said he had left. He told the tribunal that “human bombs (were) also authorised by Martin McGuinness”. “McGuinness controlled Northern Command… for the vast majority of the time,” said the former Force Research Unit agent. “Contrary to what he would have you believe that he left the IRA in the 1970s, that is not true. “He was a member of the Northern Command of the Provisional IRA council responsible for controlling people like Scappaticci.”

The IRA carried out three proxy or human bomb attacks in 1990. In one, Londonderry man Patsy Gillespie, a Catholic who worked as a cook in the Army’s Fort George base, was ordered to drive a bomb to a border checkpoint while his family was held hostage. Gillespie and five soldiers were killed in the explosion, and the IRA tactic caused massive public revulsion.

 

Well, to be precise, Gillespie was blown to smithereens. By the IRA. In Londonderry.

Naturally, those principled lions in the DUP have responded to this by insisting that the alleged terrorist mastermind McGuinness step down to clear his good name.

Hang on a sec…oh, that’s right, they have NOTHING to say about it. How odd.

  1. I believe Peter Robinson said that if there were any evidence against McGuinness it should be presented to the authorities and in court. As ever there is NONE.

    Since what you present here always as fact is little more than hearsay, tittle-tattle, the word of a discredited witness etc. I guess we are in the same place as ever.

    Don’t you get bored of going around in the same circles DV?

  2. Martin Ingram?

    Oh dear. Ireland’s answer to Hung Kung Fooey!

  3. What David isn’t telling you is that the man who claimed this, Martin Ingram, also claims that Martin McGuinness is a British Agent with the codename J118, and that he was ordered by British Security Forces to use the so called proxy bombs.

  4. pinky

    Where ya been?

  5. Hey Phantom,

    I have been here and there, mostly.:-) Back and forth to home quite a bit.

    How are you?

  6. Does anyone else wonder why Ingram is quick to name republicans but not the Gardai, Irish Army officers, customs officials or the Senator involved?

    Read the article clearly, the word “alleged” is used, but here on ATW the allegations are presented as fact.

    Zzz…

  7. Not bad, thanks.

    Busy, but under control.

    Come visit!

  8. I may return for Newt’s swearing in!!!!

    :-)

  9. He has a “good name” to clear?

  10. Pinky – I am afraid you can only return for Newt’s swearing.

  11. Mahons, 1 in 7 people in the South wanted him to be the President (a number that would probably increase significantly if the North was included). So his name is still pretty good.

  12. Love the determination on the part of some to ignore the human bomb atrocity innovated by the IRA. Excellent delusionalism.

    Marty, he was in the IRA, but then he left. Probably fancied a change of scene.

    Seamus

    Chin up. 90% of Iraqis voted for Saddam as President. Martin has a way to go.

  13. The Presidency of the US is not a sufficiently high office for the Newt ego.

  14. Seamus- He got 13.7% of the vote. I suspect jedward has more fans.

  15. David,

    seriously- where is the evidence?

  16. “Love the determination on the part of some to ignore the human bomb atrocity innovated by the IRA”

    David, do you believe Martin Ingram on this issue?

    “90% of Iraqis voted for Saddam as President”

    Though probably not the fairest of elections.

  17. David, do you believe that Martin Ingram is a reliable source of information? The only thing we know for sure about Martin Ingram is that his name isn’t really Martin Ingram.

  18. Martin Ingram? This Martin Ingram?

    A British Army whistleblower today names Sinn Fein chief Martin McGuinness as a high-ranking MI6 agent.And Martin Ingram says McGuinness’s MI6 handlers actively encouraged the IRA chief to wage a bloody ‘human bomb’ campaign in Ulster to provoke a public backlash against the Provos.

    This Ian Hurst Martin Ingram?

    Speaking from a secret location in Europe this weekend, Ingram (not his real name) said that while the latest report was not decisive proof over his claims about ‘J1118′, it raised questions about the role of informers in the ‘human bomb’ killings

    Or this Walter Mitty Martin Ingram?

    Mr Hurst’s former superior officer in the Force Research Unit also gave evidence to the inquiry in a private session, and part of this transcript was read out on Wednesday. The man, known as Witness 82, contradicted much of the evidence given by Mr Hurst.Witness 82 denied he was the source for much of Mr Hurst’s information, and rejected claims he was the handler for Stakeknife.

  19. At the time of this atrocity, McGuinness stated that Patsy Gillespie had chosen which side he was on – by working in the naafi. The clear implication was that he got what he deserved.

  20. “The clear implication was that he got what he deserved”

    But if you believe Ingram Peter:

    McGuinness’s MI6 handlers actively encouraged the IRA chief to wage a bloody ‘human bomb’ campaign in Ulster

    Or, alternatively:

    Speaking from a secret location in Europe this weekend, Ingram (not his real name) said that while the latest report was not decisive proof over his claims about ‘J1118′

  21. Another thread bites the dust.

    Evidence, who needs evidence?

    Zzz…

  22. DaithiO

    Irish Republicans, I would suggest. After all, “evidence” never stopped them murdering, did it? I do not know if Ingram is correct but I DO know the IRA blew Patsy Gillespie into atoms and that it was a planned operation. Presumably even you accept that those in authority knew about this innovation in their savagery?

  23. If you don’t know if Ingram is correct why did you include his quote?

    Alleged is such a useful word when dealing with speculation isn’t it?

  24. Malty Mitty. Martin McGuinness.
    So apt.
    How inspiring that Mr McGuinness was the IRA commander (self confessed) who never killed anyone, nor arranged the killing of anyone dudring his tenure. Thank goodness he left the IRA when he claims, otherwise he might have got corrupted….

  25. But if only you could find that one piece of evidence to connect him to all those things you allege eh?

    Is it only IRA commanders who never kill anyone nor arrange the killing of anyone during their tenure?
