I don't know. I've looked into his soul and he seems like a nice guy.

I'll say this about the Russians. They make Italian mobsters look like Girl Scouts.

This is surprising, even during the Cold War shooting people on the streets of DC was the stuff of John Lecarre' books.

During the Stalin's "consolidation", the Kemlin's FIS would kill people like Trotsky in Mexico, but not the US.

So, the question is, what did these journalists and experts do to piss off the Clintons?

Not dramatic enough ... he should have been poisoned. Now that would be dramatic!

Very alarming. Thank you for posting this important story.

There should be much, much more concern about this case. I do not believe these deaths were accidental, and I do not think this is the end of the matter. There will be more threats and more deaths. We are not being protected by these 'security agencies' who get paid so much money.

Read the bottom line

"In an odd twist, another person who appeared on the "Dateline" broadcast died of a heart attack last month. Reporter Daniel McGrory of the Times of London, who has written about the Litvinenko case, died Feb. 20, before the "Dateline" segment was broadcast. He was 54.

His family said he "died suddenly at home." He was a veteran British foreign correspondent who had reported from several war zones."

You know, the more time goes on - the more Bush looks like a chump.

Yeah, but that was a reporter. Poisoning the poison expert has panache, shows a certain degree of difficulty, sure to get a high score from the judges.
