Collusion report has lessons for the ‘war on terror’

Online magazine The First Post carries some insightful comment on the latest Oireachtas report on collusion today:

In the midst of the Cold War retro coverage of Russian
spies, poisoning and Kremlin conspiracies, a little-noticed report by
the Irish parliament last week cast a grim light on the activities of
Britain’s own ‘secret state’ during the Troubles.

report was from the parliamentary committee which examined the 1975
Kay’s Tavern bombing in Dundalk. According to the report, the Dundalk
bombing was one of various atrocities and murders carried out during
the 1970s by a South Armagh-based loyalist gang with the ‘widespread’
collusion of British security forces. (The First Post)
