Sinn Fein Spy Assumes Room Temperature: Why am I Not Surprised
It is reported in Reuters today that a former Sinn Fein member named Denis Donaldson unaccountably turned up dead and mutilated. Donaldson, after a career in which he was convicted of bombings and spent time in prison with one Gerry Adams, admitted recently that he had been a deep cover double agent for British security forces for many years.
This story brings up two points of information that it is always wise to keep in mind. First, casting aside any motivational or moral issues, Donaldson was a rat, and people do not like rats, even though they may use them from time to time. Second, those who are ratted out rarely forgive and never forget.
In a statement that is sure to induce hearty guffaws of laughter in the public houses and low places where the allegedly nonexistent and nonviolent Irish Republican Army gathers, the nonexistent and nonviolent Army issued a statement saying it had nothing to do with Donaldson's unaccountably early demise.
