And Gerry Adams joins the Clinton sideshow

In light of the latest writings from Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams, it appears the IRA had another dilemma.
It was either decommission those weapons now, or become the armed wing
of the Hillary ’08 campaign. Adams, who was briefly the IRA chief of
staff in the 1970s, is now a bearded visage for the global Clinton
brand, an instant signifier of ex-President Bill’s status as an
international statesman and totem of racial, ethnic and religious
reconciliation. Ten days ago Adams was a guest, speaking on “religion
and conflict”, at the inaugural meeting of the Clinton Global
Initiative in New York. (Funny, republicans always used to insist the Northern struggle was not about religion but about imperialism.)
