On the Adams stand off with the State Department

Some of the best writing at the moment seems to be in the virtual world (unless of course you know better). This piece from the Broom with some long thoughts on the nature of the power play between Sinn Fein and the US State Department. She notes that the US condition seems to focus around Sinn Fein backing the policing, and that party’s disappointment that the decommissioning of the IRA did not tip the balance in favour of letting Adams attend the party’s fundraising events in the US. Although I note there’s no mention of the return of the Colombian Three, which really did get under the skin of the US administration.
