Doug Beattie: Baseless claim is slur against those who protected public 

On June 5, 1976, terrorists attacked the Rock bar near Keady. This incident took place against the backdrop of some of the most sustained and brutal violence of the Troubles and came just a few months after the Kingsmill Massacre, which took place a few miles away. The past has become the latest theatre of operations in the political battlefield as republicans and their supporters try to rewrite history and seize control over how the past is remembered and understood.
