No chance of Slugger getting another exclusive on the next IMC report. Barney Rowan is back in front, with the news that next week’s report will say that the IRA has closed down its terror operations. No word yet on criminality, though there were some straws in the wind around the last report suggesting that it would not chalk up ‘freelancers’ in the IRA’s column.
