IRA lackeys not to blame for amnesty ruling

I AM surprised that anyone is surprised by the latest bit of skulduggery between Westminster and Sinn Fein/IRA.

After all, it has been patently obvious that Adams and McGuinness have both been granted amnesty for their direct, or indirect, terrorism over 30-plus years.

Why should their henchmen be tried and imprisoned while those who gave the orders (and more) were swanning around in well-paid jobs being feted by presidents and prime ministers.?

I don't blame these henchmen, I blame the intelligent, moral people who voted for that disgraceful Belfast Agreement.
