The importance of not being so blunt

6 August 2005

You know, it is statements like this one, by Peter Robinson, that make me want to harbour terrorists.

“These three men were intricately involved in the global terrorist network” the East Belfast MP said.
Bertie Ahern would do well to remember the words of President Bush when he said: ‘those who harbour terrorists are terrorists’.”

But then sense returns and I say extradite them. But I can still mumble and grumble about the tone of that statement, not to mention implicit threats. Why exactly would the Taoiseach do well to remember the words of El Presidento? Is he going to shock and awe us into sending these fellas back to Columbia?
