MI5 is the British FBI. They are in charge of Law enforcement in the British empire. MI6 is their CIA. This bombing is equivelent to our Oklahoma City Bombing. They are saying that MI5, & the FBI knew this was going to happen, & did nothing to stop it, & that the FBI, & MI5 informer was actively involved in the bombing. These are not just wild accusations either. It is becoming clearer & clearer.

Michael McKevitt, the founder of the terrorist group behind the Omagh bomb atrocity, is likely to serve less than two more years in jail in a deal designed to cover up MI5's role in Ireland.

The Real IRA, the organisation McKevitt formed five years go, was responsible for carrying out the massacre in 1998, the single biggest loss of life in the Northern Ireland Troubles.

McKevitt had been facing up to 15 years in prison over charges of directing acts of terrorism. He has been held on remand for two years in the run-up to this week's trial. But The Observer has learned that the Irish authorities have decided instead to charge him just with
membership of the Real IRA.

There is mounting concern within the Republic's Department of Justice and the Garda Siochana (Irish police) that a large-scale trial on directing acts of terrorism would expose MI5 involvement in the state.

The state's main witness against McKevitt is David Rupert, an
American citizen who claims to have infiltrated the Real IRA. Rupert, who is in protective custody in the US, not only worked for the FBI but also, unknown to the Garda's senior command, MI5.

McKevitt's legal team and supporters have also told The Observer there is a '90 per cent chance' that the charge of directing acts of terrorism - the same accusation which put loyalist leader Johnny 'Mad Dog' Adair behind bars - will be diluted. This would mean the man who founded the Real IRA in November 1997 after a split in the Provisional IRA over the latter's ceasefire would serve just a short term in prison.

'The authorities in Dublin are terrified that a full trial on the
directing acts of terrorism charge, which would mean having to bring Rupert to court, would expose MI5's connection to the case,' McKevitt's support group said last night. They alleged that exposing Rupert would risk highlighting the role of two Garda officers who are thought to have helped MI5 in anti-Real IRA operations.

McKevitt has sought to distance himself from the Real IRA in the run-up to the hearing. He and 34 fellow Real IRA inmates are understood to be on the verge of issuing a statement calling on the organisation outside to declare a ceasefire. McKevitt's wife Bernadette, the sister of IRA hunger striker Bobby Sands, also supports moves towards a Real IRA ceasefire.
