    LONDON — It has consumed more than eight years of maneuvering, obstruction and a widow’s dogged legal campaign, fought often on a shoestring. But finally, on Tuesday, a public inquiry is set to begin its quest for an answer to the question that has driven the whole process: Why did Alexander V. Litvinenko have to die? On Nov. 1, 2006, Mr. Litvinenko, a former officer of the Soviet K.G.B. in self-exile in London and a vocal critic of President Vladimir V. Putin, sipped tea from a poisoned pot, took sick and died 22 days later. Only after his death did...

    Usually I don’t talk about political or news figures, but I ran across this article and it really got my attention. Glenn Beck is a controversial media figure and many people either like him or hate him. But that is not the focus of this article. The question is, is he being poisoned by a person? No. Glenn has been dealing with neuropathy for awhile and has been to see lots of different medical specialists to get to the root of his issue. The doctors believed that he was being poisoned…by the food that he had been eating. He had...

    Mexican official: Fast and Furious 'poisoned' public opinion of USBy Jordy Yager - 05/31/12 05:36 PM ET The Mexican ambassador to the United States on Thursday said a botched gun-tracking operation by America “poisoned” public opinion of the United States for the citizens of its southern neighbor. Ambassador Arturo Sarukhan told a room of reporters on Capitol Hill that the failed Operation Fast and Furious, which has been the focus of a Republican investigation in the House for more than a year, “put a lot of strain” on U.S.-Mexico relations. “Fast and Furious has poisoned the well-spring of public opinion...

    Was it a competitor or just a vandal who poisoned 7 million vegetable plants at a seedling nursery in Australia? The sabotage -- estimated at a loss of 23.5 million Australian dollars ($20.3 million) -- could more than double produce prices across the country due to decreased supply. About 4 million tomato seedlings were poisoned, as well as bell peppers, melons and eggplant. The region of Bowen, in northern Queensland state, grows the majority of Australia's winter vegetables. Police investigations found that a herbicide was introduced in late June into the irrigation system of the Supa Seedlings nursery, which sells...

    The former first lady Laura Bush has opened a diplomatic can of worms by writing in her new book that she and her husband may have been poisoned during a state visit to a G8 summit in Germany in 2007. The passage of Spoken From the Heart in which she discusses the incident amounts to the first time that the idea has been floated that George Bush's illness at the summit may have been the result of poisoning. The then US president succumbed to a stomach complaint, as did his wife and several members of their entourage, during a three-day...

    LONDON — Ailing former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko's condition has deteriorated and doctors remain puzzled by his critical illness, which probably was not caused by the toxic metal thallium or radiation, a doctor said Thursday. A friend said Litvinenko was on life support. Dr. Geoff Bellingan, director of critical care at University College Hospital, said Litvinenko's condition had shown "a dramatic deterioration" overnight. He did not comment on the report by Litvinenko's friend, Alex Goldfarb. "We are now convinced that the cause of Mr. Litvinenko's condition was not a heavy metal such as thallium. Radiation poisoning is also unlikely," Bellingan...

    AMSTERDAM, Netherlands - Former Yugoslav leader Slobodan Milosevic, the so-called "butcher of the Balkans" being tried for war crimes after orchestrating a decade of bloodshed during his country's breakup, was found dead Saturday in his prison cell. He was 64. Milosevic, who suffered chronic heart ailments and high blood pressure, apparently died of natural causes and was found in his bed, the U.N. tribunal said, without giving an exact time of death. He had been examined following frequent complaints of fatigue or ill health that delayed his trial, but the tribunal could not immediately say when his last medical checkup...
