Kincora Boys

The following is an extract from an article in Wakeup Magazine (full article at jackgrantham)

"For years, MI5 had been aware of a homosexual vice ring operating within the Kincora Boys Home in East Belfast, which was run by William McGrath, a notorious homosexual and leader of a strongly anti-Communist paramilitary organisation called Tara.

"McGrath was also a member of the Orange Order and of Ian Paisley's Free Presbyterian Church and was employed by MI5 since the mid 1960s.

"Amongst various other Loyalist members of the homosexual ring were John McKeague, who ran the Loyalist paramilitary organisation, the Red Hand Commandos, which was involved in many sectarian killings.

"When Loyalists threatened the Ulster Workers Council strike as a means of bringing down the power-sharing executive (the alliance of moderate Protestants and Catholic created by the Heath Government), Colin Wallace was instructed to leak intelligence reports on Kincora (as part of a project code-named Clockwork Orange 2) to put pressure on key people who MI5 believed had influence over the Loyalists.

"However, after a short time Wallace was told to stop 'because London had a change of mind and wanted the Ulster Workers Council Strike to succeed. I later discovered that this new strategy was part of the overall policy to discredit Harold Wilson in that the Sunningdale Agreement was a Conservative initiative and was now being seen to fail under Labour.'

"MI5 agent James Miller had infiltrated the UDA in the early 1970s, becoming one of its leading intelligence officers. He later revealed that senior MI5 officers had ordered him in early 1974 to 'get UDA men at grass roots level to start pushing for a strike. So I did.'

"So, MI5 allowed the ill-treatment and sexual abuse of residents at the Kincora Boys Home to continue; the Loyalist strike was allowed to proceed and there was a complete breakdown of law and order. The province was virtually taken over by Loyalist paramilitary organisations.

"Two days into the strike, Loyalist paramilitaries exploded car bombs in Dublin and Monaghan, killing thirty three civilians.

"The Loyalists responsible were members of the outlawed Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF), some of whom were acting as undercover agents for Military Intelligence. The explosives, training and planning for the mission were given by the SAS. Key suspects known to the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) were never questioned about the massacre."

Programme 10: Sunday 16th September
Colin Wallace, exposed British Army dirty tricks in Northern Ireland

From Co. Antrim, Wallace joined the British Army in Lisburn as a public relations officer. He quickly impressed and rose to the rank of Lieutenant Colonel by the age of 31. He co-operated with shadowy campaigns run by the intelligence services, but drew the line at a campaign to undermine and discredit the new Labour Government in Downing Street; and at efforts to cover up child sex abuse at a boys' home run by a valued informer.

When he refused to continue with these activities, he was fired from his job, and found himself blacklisted. He resettled in England but, when a friend there died in suspicious circumstances, he was convicted of manslaughter and spent six years in prison. He claims that he was framed for the murder in order to silence him. Years later, his conviction was quashed; the British Government acknowledged that he had been wrongly removed from his job and admitted that the infamous 'Clockwork Orange' project, which they had previously denied, did in fact exist.

Anyone who could leave vulnerable children at the hands of these monsters masquerading as humanbeings should be tortured and burned.
