Questions for Gerry Adams
There are two interesting and related reports in the Belfast Telegraph tonight.
Adams has gone south of the border to Louth and a seat in the Dail but he cannot escape the questions about his role in the IRA, especially in Belfast in the early 1970s. Those were the days when the IRA established its secret murder squad, developed the car bomb and then used it to terrible effect on Bloody Friday.
Republicans are good at asking for inquiries and demanding the truth from everyone else but they are guilty of the worst hypocrisy in that Adams and others refuse to tell the truth about their role in the IRA. Not only does Adams refuse to tell the truth but he even denies he was a member of the IRA, in spite of all the evidence to the contrary from former Provisionals such as Hughes and Price.
There are many questions for Adams to answer and however much he tries to run away from them, those questions will pursue him until they are answered. Otherwise they will pursue him to the grave.
