Martin's IRA oath should be aired

Noting the extensive media coverage of an oath taken by Dana on acquiring US citizenship in addition to her ongoing Irish citizenship, can we expect to see at least as much space devoted to the oath taken not to a democratic, law-based state, but to an illegal, secret, criminal conspiracy by Martin McGuinness when, as he admits, he joined the Provisional IRA?

Give us the full text of his oath and let us know how you escape from, or can revoke, the obligations implied under that IRA oath. And what penalties apply for breach of that secret oath? Or for leaving the Provisional IRA without permission?
