Why do SF support the OTR legislation?

"Sinn Fein's position is absolutely clear, we are opposed to the inclusion of British state forces in the current legislation.

"In our view it represents the latest attempt by the British state to conceal the truth about its involvement in the killing of citizens." - Sinn Féin's Gerry Adams speaking on the On-The-Run legislation.

If that's the case Gerry, why won't your party come out and oppose the legislation in the way the SDLP, UUP, DUP, Fine Gael and Labour have?

Can any Shinner explain this to me?

Sinn Féin's Conor Murphy was asked this question on Hearts and Minds, which you can watch here, but unsurprisingly he wouldn't give an answer. (I recommend you watch this clip to observe the ever-excellent Noel Thompson make a fool out of Mr Murphy)

The situation is clear-cut. Sinn Féin claim they oppose the inclusion of British State forces in the legislation - so why not then oppose the legislation?
