Walter Mitty, Ed Moloney and Gerry Adams arresting himself

Gerry Adams, Irish President of Sinn Fein

Moloney concludes, “What a shame that a slipshod approach by the Obama administration to such a crucial issue has put it all at risk.”

No, Ed. The shame is that your hatred for Gerry Adams and the peace process led to the events of the past few days which could put Northern Ireland back on the brink.

 Former Northern Ireland Secretary Shaun Woodward warned in The Guardian that the arrest of Adams marks one of the most "tense and potentially quite dangerous" moments in the peace process.

As Adams recently stated, “It is clear that the so-called Boston Oral History Project is an entirely bogus, shoddy and self-serving effort by those involved.

“The idea for this project originated with Paul Bew, an advisor to David Trimble and was taken up by Ed Moloney and Anthony McIntyre, who conducted the interviews. Both are vitriolic critics and opponents of the Sinn Féin peace strategy, of me in particular and of Sinn Féin and its leadership.”

And now the chickens have come home to roost no matter how much Moloney tries to squawk otherwise.
