Disgusting Journalism

I am absolutely disgusted by this article which I found through a link from the excellent Nuzhound. In this article Alan Ruddock attempts to argue than Gerry Adams is actually attempting to seek poltical advantage from the brutal McCartney murder.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Gerry Adams, like every true Irish Republican, was absolutely appalled by the McCartney murder. Those who perpetrated this evil deed have nothing in common with Republicanism and certainly they have violated the comand of the 1916 Proclamation;

we pray that no one who serves that cause will dishonour it by cowardice, in humanity, or rapine.

Gerry Adams has made his contempt for the murderers clear and I echo his call that those who have ANY information such bring that information forward to whichever avenue they feel most appropriate. To claim, as this article does, that this murder is being used by Gerry Adams to further his political objective is a scandalous allegation and one rooted in no factual base.

There are those manipulating the plight of this bereaved family for political gain, but these people certainly aren't Gerry Adams.
