SECURITY forces didn't intercept the Real IRA's Omagh bombing team because one of the terrorists was a British double-agent whose cover would have been blown as an informer if the operation was uncovered......The revelations follow claims by another British double-agent in the IRA, Kevin Fulton (not his real name), that he phoned a warning to his RUC handlers 48 hours before the Omagh bombing that the Real IRA was planning an attack and gave details of one of the bombing team and the man's car registration.

The IRA is interlinked with other Communist terrorist organizations. For example, on May 6, 2002, it was revealed that Marxist Communist rebels (FARC) in Colombia had been meeting for at least the prior three years and getting guidance from more than a dozen members of Sinn Fein and the IRA, who provided training in bomb making skills to the communist rebels and guided them in other terror activities. In congressional testimony before the U.S. House of Representatives International Relations Committee, Colombian General Fernando Tapias, chairman of Colombia’s joint chiefs of staff, attributed to IRA training of the Marxist rebels the bombings of 320 electrical towers, 30 bridges, and 46 car bombings, resulting in the murders of 400 Colombian police and military officers.
