Fr Reid worked tirelessly for years to end the Troubles in Northern Ireland, today he died peacefully in hospital. He will be remembered.
Claims a shadowy military force were tasked with shooting IRA Volunteers - armed or not - are worrying, but not in the least surprising.
The PM said such a move would be 'rather dangerous' whilst none of the political parties in Northern Ireland supported the proposal.

Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams has suffered a severe backlash after he claimed two of the most senior RUC officers killed by the IRA had only themselves to blame.
Politicians on all sides in Dublin and Belfast reacted in disbelief after the republican leader said that Chief Superintendent Harry Breen and Superintendent Bob Buchanan effectively drove themselves to their own death.
An eight year tribunal found an IRA mole in the Garda station in Dundalk tipped off a terrorist hit squad that the men were attending a meeting in the town on the day of the murders, March 20 1989.
Mr Adams claimed the RUC men thought they were immune from attack and had "a laissez-faire disregard for their own security".
In his 500-page report, Judge Peter Smithwick found there was collusion in the killings but he has not pointed the finger at any individual officer or civilian.
He found: "It is particularly regrettable that both police services acted swiftly to dismiss speculation of the possibility of collusion rather than to deal with that by means of a thorough and credible investigation.
"This was an example of the prioritisation of political expediency in the short term, without due regard to the rights of victims and the importance of placing justice at the centre of any policing system."
Chief Superintendent Harry Breen and Superintendent Bob Buchanan were gunned down on March 20 1989 near the border in south Armagh shortly after a meeting with a senior gardai in Dundalk, Co Louth.
A tribunal into collusion between the Republic's Garda and the Provos has found an unidentified IRA mole leaked information about their movements on the day they were killed.

A woman was taken to hospital with a suspected broken arm after a stampede at a shopping centre over cut-price televisions for "Black Friday".
There were also claims that a heavily pregnant woman was pushed and shoved and pensioners were knocked to the ground by frantic shoppers battling to get their hands on Christmas deals at the Asda store in west Belfast.
TVs were reduced from £179 to £99 as part of Asda's "Black Friday" special offers that were advertised throughout the UK.
The US event traditionally takes place on the Friday following Thanksgiving and marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.
The paedophile brother of Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams has been sentenced to 16 years in prison after being found guilty last month of a string of sexual assaults against his daughter.
Liam Adams was found guilty of 10 offences against his daughter Aine Dahlstrom, who has waived her right to anonymity, when she was a child in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
The abuse was committed over a five-year period between 1977 and 1981, when she was aged between four and nine.
Adams' convictions have heaped further pressure on his brother to explain why he did not alert authorities to the abuse allegations when he first learned of them.
During a first trial earlier this year, which collapsed, the Sinn Fein leader claimed he first heard of the sex abuse claims in 1987 and, 13 years later, his younger brother admitted his guilt to him.
