Smokescreen can't make IRA's past disappear
ON Monday night we heard tapes again detailing Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams' alleged involvement in the abduction and murder of the widowed mother of 10 children, Jean McConville. The tapes played in the course of a television documentary again raise serious questions about Mr Adams' leadership of Sinn Fein.
On Tuesday in Dail Eireann Taoiseach Enda Kenny and other leading politicians challenged Mr Adams on the issue.
On Wednesday, just after Mr Adams had left for a visit to the US, Sinn Fein told us of other tapes (relating to Anglo Irish Bank) which it had given to the gardai and the Central Bank.
