      Mr. Holder knows that police in the US, for example the FBI, often give immunity-even to criminals, for information. That is the legal reason why the tapes should not be given to the PSNI. Also, academics were conducting research so future generations can hear the REAL story of "The Troubles" in N. Ireland. This very important project should not be stopped by police.

      The tapes should stay in the US because the US upholds Freedom of Speech.
