MOD EDIT

I've moved and retitled the thread. An obscure thread title in an inappropriate forum without text is not what we're after. Now how about the OP shares some thoughts on the subject?

Having seen the BBC report on the evening TV news it is unclear whether the stolen materials were ever used by the Continuity IRA. He was certainly able to half inch large amounts of materials and that alone must be an embarrassment to Pusser. I don't know how he was eventually rumbled but it wasn't a moment too soon.

My opinion... I love the royal marines and he must be a great guy to get a green lid but he made bombs ... Not exactly gonna admire him. As for the misleading title, i apologise just wasnt 100% sure what to put.

Maybe the theft of materials was known and closely monitored, to see where it went and who got it. If it was a sting type operation it will never be made public.

One of his hidden caches was found by chance by a dog walker, I think that they then watched to see who turned up.

Likewise, I have the greatest respect for the Royal Marines as a military unit, but I certainly do not believe for a nano second that individuals earning a green beret suddenly stop being an arrsehole if they were one to begin with, frankly.

The "enemy within" is a long established terrorist method of furthering their respective cause and credit is due to the security services (and hopefully "aftercare reporting") for nailing those of this ilk.

Somehow, I doubt there will be protests of his perceived innocence. The are, of course, less than sharp critics who seem to imagine membership of this elite brotherhood naturally means they all behave like the christian church when it comes to individuals breaking the law. If anything the reverse is true.
