Ex-IRA guerrilla McGuinness - I never killed anyone - Yahoo! So that's alright then. He's saying he never killed anyone, regardless of the fact he ordered the murders, bombing, thuggery etc... I don't think most of the people on trial at Nuremberg actually pulled a trigger, however they were certainly responsible. The only difference I see between McGuinness and those at Nuremberg is that they saw Justice. McGuinness will just be rewarded with further Political office.
