Have to say I am also pleased with this latest news on the “Boston Tapes”;
The family of Jean McConville, murdered and secretly buried by the IRA 40 years ago, have welcomed a US appeal court ruling that an interview with a former IRA bomber should be handed to police. In the Boston College recording, Dolours Price allegedly discusses Mrs McConville’s death. She spoke on the strict understanding that the interview would be kept secret until after her death.
I wonder what she had to say about alleged Gerry Adams role in the kidnapping, torture and murder of Mrs McConville? As you know, Adams denies that he was in the IRA. Just like Machine Gun McGuinness claims he left the IRA in the early ’70’s to pursue a career fishing. The outrage of some at this decision by the US Appeal Court is curious. Don’t they WANT people to know EXACTLY went on within the IRA? Don’t they want a little light shone into the darkness of the Provos? I suppose there is a real risk that the halo that surrounds certain IRA warlords now masquerading as politicians might be tarnished if the truth gets out. Wouldn’t that be just awful? Of course since it is the PSNI that will get the information, we should not hold our breaths. The PSNI continues to pander to Republicans at every opportunity and is heavily politicised so I doubt that cages will be rattled too heavily.
