Soldier’s Killing Terrible Development

Capitol Hill Sunday, March 8, 2009 —

The killing of the two British soldiers at Massereene Barracks in Antrim on Saturday, March 8, 2009, was a “ terrible development”.

That is how the president of the Capitol Hill-based Irish National Caucus reacted to the news.“

I was so hopeful that Stephen Restorick, whose parents have shown such fortitude and dignity, would have been the last British soldier to be killed on Irish soil”.(Lance Bombardier Restorick was killed by an IRA sniper in Bessbrook, County Armagh on 12th February 1997).“

It is so wrong and so crazy to have that happen now, as if there were no peace-process. There is certainly no support among Irish-Americans for this terrible development.”
