Thanks for those comments. It sounds as though I was not far from the mark.
Maybe I got quite a lot of insight from a friend who was a Major in the Royal Marines and in the SAS, and was for a period one of the 'long-haired weirdos'(as he described) undercover in NI.
If his cover had been blown he would have been a dead man. I am sure the police in general were not allowed to know who they were.
Sadly after he retired, after working for Control Risks and springing hostages in S. America(his operation was subject of a film) he bought a boat and was sailing round the world when he was lost at see in the S. Pacific - never found.
I just hope this was a one-off and that is not the start of worse, although your comments about being a set-up job means it does not auger well.
Two have been charged. I hope they are the culprits and not just set-up for publicity. As you say the security forces have their knowledge.
