Ingram on IRA, MI5, FBI and MI6

Radio Free Eireann runs a lengthy interview with ‘Martin Ingram’ (sound file, starts 25 minutes in). Ingram describes how informers were enlisted from within the IRA, how MI5 and the FBI cooperated in running British agents in the US (including Dennis Donaldson), how MI5 and MI6 operated in the US, what British protection was given to Gerry Adams and Martin McGuinness and their failure to root out informers, the significance of American funding for IRA, and more generally how Northern Ireland undercover operations were conducted. Is he spreading disinformation? He responds to the scepticism of his detractors.
