Its pretty easy to believe Putin is into knocking off his enemies, however this statement is not proof. Mere speculation.
Correct! Everyone on Free Republic was saying Putin had Anna Polikovskaya killed, but in Russia they were saying it was either Colonel Movladi Baisarov or Chechen Prime Minister Ramzan Kadyrov. Polikovskaya's final article exposed Baisarov as having murdered a Chechen family. Baisarov was shot by Kadyrov's security services Saturday on a Moscow street.

Personally I find the anti-Putin hysteria foolish. The Polikovskaya shooting, looked at through the lens of "who benefited?" does not point to Vladimir Putin. The FSB would have been much more discreet. Pulling such an obvious stunt that is clearly intended to reinforce the idea that Putin is blood thirsty and cruel is likely the work of Putin's enemies.
The thallium business is easily done, the material is a common rodentcide, the toxicology is all over the net, is essentially tasteless in lethal doses, and is used by casual murders world wide and used in the USA to murder some hundreds of people a year. The hair falling out is a dead giveaway that Thallium has been used. Really a very obvious poison. Rather unlikely agent to use surreptitiously in such a public case, eh?
