Cuban aircraft were searched and data were passed to the US embassy for 8 years
In a discovery that sheds new light on the current conspicuous refusal of the Garda Síochána to search US military aircraft and CIA aircraft suspected of carrying victims of torture through Shannon Airport, the Irish Times today tells us that Taoiseach Seán Lemass personally authorised searches of aircraft at Shannon in 1962.
Newly declassified files from government archives show that Taoiseach Seán Lemass authorised searches of Cuban aircraft landing at Shannon Airport during the Cuban missile crisis of 1962, and went on passing information about these flights to the United States right up to 1970, Political Editor Stephen Collins writes in the Irish Times today.
