    A very interesting article. I have always suspected from day one, that MI5 or agents working for them, engineered Omagh to boost the Provisionals and destroy militant Republicanism. If so, the two blackest days of the Troubles, Dublin/Monaghan, and Omagh, were carried out by the hand of Brit Intelligence. The future Civil action may actually blow up in the States face.
    Republicans must also share the blame, for falling into the trap, and lessons must be learnt.

    For over7 years, the public was told that misleading warnings were given by the IRA, regarding Omagh, and that the Crown Forces were unable to locate the car on time. . Now we learn warnings were given with the correct location, but were not relayed by somebody within the Crown Forces. We also learn the car was tracked by a U.S satellite, yet they claim they could'nt find the ************************in car. The Brits wanted dead civilians so they could use the atrocity as a stick to beat dissidents, bring in oppressive legislation, and lock the Provos into the process.
    PSF's "No alternative" mantra, only really began after Omagh. This was what MI5 had in it's designs. But they have failed. Militant Republicans stood firm, despite practical internment on both sides of the border. They are actually stronger in the North now, than they were pre Omagh.

    Are you slow? Read my previous posts. "Republicans must also share the blame. The IRA admitted their part, acknowledged their role, and apologised to the families, and the 32 CSM has called for an Independant International inquiry, and have met some families of the victims. Those responsible for herding the civilians towards the bomb, have yet to take such a humbled and honest position. Why don't you read the initial post again, my friend, and ask yourself, ..why isn't the British State unable, or unwilling to answer any of the allegations.

    Just to illustrate my point above, the Omagh Support and Self Help group, which represents families of the victims, recently requested a meeting with MI5 to discuss the issues, in the initial post.
    Well, they got their reply today. They are refused a meeting. Indeed, such is the arrogance of the MI5 head, she states she is, "unclear as to why they should wish to meet her." The whole thing stinks to high Heaven.
