    and seeing as how his 'source' is apparantely an anonymous serving Special Branch officer, its far more likely that the source wants to discredit SF by throwing some dirt at McGuinness, than McGuinness being an agent.

    That was kindof my point. 2-3 years ago during the Saville Inquiry the meeja were fed a constant drip of stories from the British about how McGuinness was absolutely, positively, definitely the man who started shooting at the Paras on Bloody Sunday. Despite the fact that all the credible evidence clearly shows that the Brits fired first, and while 2 different men did fire a couple of shots back, both were OIRA. But no matter.

    Now they want us to believe that the man they went all out to blacken the name of (there was all the Hegarty stuff too) a couple of years back - and coincidentally all this hysteria was going on during the only period Stormont was actually up and running - has been one of their agents all along.

    It looks like either a) the British were actually controlling all the combatants on all sides throughout the Troubles....and they have no qualms about stabbing their agents in the back (or worse, as with William Stobie) when it becomes convenient or b) Pretty much everything that has ever been reported in the meeja wrt the Troubles is a huge whopping pile of smoke-and-mirrors lies. Or both.

    EXCLUSIVE: SPY SHOCKER
    By Gail Edgar
    TOP secret papers obtained by The People have sensationally exposed one of Sinn Fein's most senior figures as a British SPY.

    It is alleged "Agent J11B" colluded with MI6 on undercover operations in which a number of people were killed.

    He is also said to be a former member of the IRA Council who met regularly with Irish premier Bertie Ahern and his government.

    The secret documents, passed to our Belfast office, include his security code number which he used as identification when liaising with his British handlers.

    The agent has been a leading light of Sinn Fein - the main nationalist party in Northern Ireland - for 20 years and is known as a brilliant negotiator.

    Rumours that a top Sinn Fein man was a spy have been circulating for some time.

    But it is only now that the alleged proof of his identity will be known in wider circles.


    Last night, a security source told The People: "I cannot stress how senior this man is. This will destroy Sinn Fein."
    The day will dawn when all the people of Ireland will have the desire for freedom to show.
    It is then we'll see the rising of the moon.
