USA prepared to investigate murder of Politkovskaya
The US State Department does not rule out the possibility of the Russian party inviting American experts for the investigation of the murder of Anna Politkovskaya, stated Sean McCormack, official US State Department representative on October 11. It also became known yesterday that the American embassy in Moscow is now considering the possibility of such cooperation. Anna Politkovskaya was born in the USA and, apart from being a Russian subject, was also an American citizen.
The press-service of the US embassy in Moscow informed the "Nezavisimaya Gazeta" newspaper correspondent that "in conformance with American legislation, the embassy is prepared to provide the necessary consular services to Politkovskaya's relatives." They noted that the Russian authorities, so far, "have not applied to the Russian party for assistance in the investigation."
Anna Politkovskaya, "Novaya Gazeta" newspaper correspondent, was killed on Saturday, October 7, in Moscow. Politkovskaya was primarily known by her materials related with Chechnya and North Caucasus. The last interview in her life, given almost an hour before the murder to the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent was also devoted to the Chechen problems.

Even though many of us have fantasized about certain journalist biting the big one, this whole thing stinks of a Commie KGB plot. I hope someone gets to the bottom of this before it becomes fashionable to kill bloggers and such in this country.

"On the day when her mother was shot dead, Vera was sitting in a car parked near the house and could probably see the killer."
The writer of THAT line, must be trying to set the daughter up for her own murder.....
Or, are the Russian authorities setting up to hunt over a baited field?
