Talking to terrorists
Recently there has been much comment in the media about the need to talk to dissident republicans. Should the government enter into discussions, formal or informal, direct or indirect, with dissident republicans? Some commentators have argued that it is a good thing to do but have failed to produce any substantial evidence or argument. In that context it is perhaps worthwhile reflecting on what happened in 1972.
