The more we think we know..

What Taoiseach Bertie Ahern, and many others, previously didn’t know apparently became slightly less unknown today, as Sinn F�in’s former Head of Administration in the Assembly admitted to RT�’s Charlie Bird that he was recruited as an agent for the British government[RealPlayer] in the 1980s – interestingly the camera focuses on marks on the back of Denis Donaldson’s hand at one point. Charlie Bird explains the circumstances of the prepared statement, but little else, here[RealPlayer]. The BBC have the transcript of that statement, and Newsnight led with a report in tonight’s programme[I’ll update when available] and asked both SF and the NIO for someone to interview.. neither had anyone available for comment.
