NBC On Litvinenko

NBC’s Dateline will be addressing the poisoning of Litvinenko tonight at 7 PM (EST). Check local listings of course. I am not holding out a lot of hope for a detailed news report.

    let’s hope Putin can re-solidify a Ukraine-Russian partnership.

    The media is still stuck on assassination. The media is fond of issuing false news at all times.

    There’s about as much hope of that as there is of your shutting up.

    I have a better rumor. Litvinenko never died.

    There was no one in the box.

    And, he’s now “deep undercover.” Not underground.

    But you could run a test.

    You could go to where they say he is buried. And, see if your get your Geiger Counter to click.

    Guy off’ed himself. Will the insurance company pay off?

    Mr Strata,

    We, non-Americans, will be thankful for your report. We can’t see the NBC.

    Carol, it would be a funny idea. Geigers do not register alpha’s, they only register gamma’s. And the half-life of polonium is only 3 months. In half a year you’ ll find nothing even if you see the dead man.

    And what’s about the photoes of the dying man?

    “You could go to where they say he is buried. And, see if your get your Geiger Counter to click.”

    That wouldn’t work because alpha rays wont penetrate his skin, let alone a coffin and soil. You would never be able to detect it. It is interesting because there would also have been no reason to deny a viewing since nobody exposed to the body would get any dose of radiation and the material quickly decays.

  7. crosspatch says:

    Alpha particles won’t even penetrate more than a few centimeters of air so if the source is more than a few inches from you, it would be completely undetectable.

    Ermit. All the photos were photo-chopped-chopped-chopped.

    If you’re writing a book? Why not think this was an insurance scam.

    For a guy who spent time in A hospital, the photos you have were done on the sly. Not part of the official record.

    And, what did officials use to find “alpha’s” ??? Blue Lights? Hot wemmen?

    NEWS FROM STRATEGY PAGE. Who knew Chechnya lost?


    Whatever Happened to Chechnya?
    February 25, 2007: Largely unnoticed by the rest of the world, Russia has defeated an Islamic terrorist movement in Chechnya. It took a while, and involved some trial and error. When Chechnya first tried to separate itself from Russia (after the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991), Russia responded with an inept military operation (1994-6) that killed over 35,000 people, and failed. Russia withdrew and left the Chechens to their own devices. In effect, the Chechens could pretend they were independent, while the Russians pretended they weren’t. Problem was, the Chechens could not agree on how to form a unified government, and stumbled into a perpetual civil war.
