http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/news/article-23375897-details/Exclusive:%20Sushi%20bar%20man%20is%20nuclear%20waste%20expert/article.do ^

The last person to meet Alexander Litvinenko before he succumbed to the agonising effects of radioactive poisoning is a self-professed expert in nuclear materials.

International 'security consultant' Mario Scaramella, who joined Litvinenko for the now infamous clandestine meeting in a London sushi bar, headed an organisation which tracked dumped nuclear waste, including Soviet nuclear missiles left over from the Cold War.

Do they mean the sushi chef who prepared the food or the guy he met?

I did and it was great. First time, too. Also had some Kobe beef with it. Also phenomenal.

I not only lived to tell about it, I had a good time.

Guess I should have mentioned this at Thanksgiving, too. ;)

Maybe it has something to do with not being involved in international power plays and having a background in espionage. (*smirk*)

His name is Italian, but he is decidedly not mafia. Read the article and you will see that he has tipped off the Italian police to crimes being committed in the smuggling of nuclear materials. Cosa Nostra: nessuno ratti permisero.

Poison is from China. Canadian Free Press

On Saturday morning, a day after Alexander Litvinienko died of poisoning by a radio-active isotope, Polonium-210, I got a phone call from England. Mr. Gordon Thomas, a famous British investigative journalist and intelligence author, told me he had obtained information from MI5 and MI6 sources that the rare isotope came from China. Was the notorious Chinese intelligence service interested in assassinating former KGB-FSB spy, Alexander Litvinenko? If so, perhaps only for money.

Spaten is spade (not spit) in German. Therefore the trademark of that beer is a... you guessed it... spade!

Hey speaking of Spaten, if you ever seen that movie Saving Private Ryan, the part when the German and the American get into the knife fight in the building and the German wrestles the knife away and slowly sticks it into the Americans heart, while doing it the German says something about Spaten. I always thought it was bizarre because maybe he was talking about the beer, maybe saying "After I kill you I`m having a beer?" Now you say it means spade, can it mean he was talking about the beer also? Or maybe he was saying he was going to bury him with a spade. Either way, that was the sickest scene in that movie.

I have to see that particular scene again... Can't remember exactly what he said. But since every (German) soldier had a Spaten (spade) with him (and it's rather dubious that a commercial name for a beer brand get's used by a movie in a negative context...), I guess it's about killing or burying him with a spade.

As Putin said just the other day; "Mafia is not a Russian word."

Did he really say that? How Clintonesque. Did someone tell him "Soviet" is a Russian word, as in "Soviet Socialist Republics," synonymous with communism?

Yes, he (Putin) said it. Putin has had some difficulty lately with the EU.

Here's an excerpt from the BBC article.

EU and Russia risk summit fiasco
By Stephen Mulvey
EU reporter, BBC News


Just as it seemed the EU's relations with Russia could not get any worse, they seem to be heading precisely that way.

A month ago, at an EU summit in the Finnish town Lahti, tempers flared as EU leaders tackled President Vladimir Putin on human rights, corruption, Chechnya and Georgia.


The Lahti summit was not a happy occasion
The Russian leader reportedly struck back with barbed comments about corruption in Italy and Spain - pointing out that "mafia" is not a Russian word.

To make matters worse, the EU leaders only just presented a united front to Mr Putin on energy policy, their chief goal.

A month later and the scene appears set for more of the same at the EU-Russia summit in Helsinki.

The summit was meant to see the launch of negotiations on a new strategic partnership agreement between the EU and Russia.

But Poland - one of the countries which criticised Russia most sharply at Lahti - has vetoed the start of the talks, in a dispute over a Russian embargo on Polish meat and plant products.

If the talks do not start in Helsinki, the summit risks being labelled a farce.

That said, some seriously interesting stuff here beyond sushi. . .

His name is Italian, but he is decidedly not mafia. Read the article and you will see that he has tipped off the Italian police to crimes being committed in the smuggling of nuclear materials.

It would appear that he is KGB and more than likely, double agent. ..

Liittle has been said of 'Vladimir'and 'the bodyguard', Andrei Lugovoy. . .who left London (returned to Russia?) before Litvienko was 'diagnosed and done'. . .

that said; check 'spanalot's link/post 26'. .

.[ . .LONDON: A mystery Russian who met former KGB spy Alexander Litvinenko at a London hotel on the day he was poisoned has emerged as the prime suspect in the hunt for the assassin. Mr Litvinenko, who yesterday suffered a "major deterioriation" in his condition, told Scotland Yard detectives he had arranged a rendezvous with an old friend, but was surprised to find another man present who introduced himself only as "Vladimir". (more). . .]

This whole thing is painfully wierd; but fascinating, nonetheless. Probably story; interspersed with bogus fill as well.

One thing for sure. . .WE will never know all the details of this 'whodunnit'/spy drama. . .but certainly different with info 'flying' on the internet; than the response to these crimes in the 'old days'.

The poison definitely came from Moscow
..............

British Airways said they had been advised the risk to public health is low.

Passengers from the following flights are being asked to come forward:
• BA875 Moscow-Heathrow on October 25 - aircraft number GBNWX
• BA872 Heathrow-Moscow on October 28 - aircraft number GBNWX
• BA873 Moscow-Heathrow on October 31 - aircraft number GBNWB
• BA874 Heathrow-Moscow on November 3 - aircraft number GBZHA

The flights would have each been carrying up to 200 passengers.

Following headline from Drudge via Daily Mail/London:

Passengers called forward as radiation traces found on planes in spy death probe. . .
