Danny Morrison blogs on the Guardian, and wonders why few early speculations gave serious credence to the possibility of British involvement in the killing of Donaldson. Given the ambiguity surrounding his death it allows for any of a number of possibilities. Although it pays to be sceptical about all or any conspiracy theories, nothing at this stage should be ruled in, or out. That’s not to say with the propensity of all sides in this conflict to bury the truth, sometimes literally, as deeply and as impenetrably as possible.
