Dublin-Monaghan truth ‘could endanger lives’

Intriguingly cryptic comment from the British ambassador to Ireland about the Dublin-Monaghan bombings:

"One does have to be very cognisant, in conducting inquiries into this sort of area, of the legitimate requirements of national security," he said yesterday.

"That’s not a cover-up. That is partly to protect the lives of people who were involved at the time, who could conceivably be endangered if full details of what went on were to come out." (Irish Examiner)

Why would the truth about bombings in the Republic of Ireland endanger British national security, or endanger the lives of people who the British Government felt obliged to protect?

Perhaps the Ambassador’s meaning will become clearer when the McEntee Inquiry reports in the autumn.
