Government lies over use of Shannon exposed
Exclusive US soldiers in uniform
• Photographs taken at Shannon Airport last Saturday and published above, show in graphic detail the 26-County state's continuing complicity in the war in Iraq. Huge numbers of US soldiers, in full uniforms, mixed with civilians in the main lounge of Shannon Airport last Saturday. This gives a lie to the government's pretence of neutrality and is also in direct contravention of the Defence Act of 1954, which specifically prohibits foreign soldiers from appearing on Irish soil in their uniforms.
