Sir Hugh Orde, Northern Ireland’s police chief, said in a BBC television interview that investigations into the killings of the soldiers on March 7 in Antrim and of a police officer two days later in Craigavon were going “very well indeed.”
He described the groups that claim to have carried out the killings — the Real I.R.A. in the soldiers’ case and the Continuity I.R.A. in the police officer’s — as “small, marginalized, disenfranchised and well-infiltrated groups.”
So, if they are small,
and if they are marginal,
and if they are disenfranchised (?)
and if they are well-infiltrated,
how come they are killing policemen?
