Anna Politkovskaya

Published by under All General Discussions

The contract killing of journalist Anna Politkovskaya is many times seen as a contract killing by Russian government agents. It is no doubt a contract killing, but my suspicions have been that she was killed because she was getting too close to some uncomfortable truths regarding things in Chechnya – organized crime details. A review […]

More Harry Reid Desert Delights

Sen Majority Leader Harry Reid seems to be awash with incredible land deals in the deserts around Las Vegas. In 2002, Reid (D-Nev.) paid $10,000 to a pension fund controlled by Clair Haycock, a Las Vegas lubricants distributor and his friend for 50 years. The payment gave the senator full control of a 160-acre parcel […]

Another Victim Of Polonium 210

It seems the barman at the Millenium Hotel which was visited by Litvinenko and Lugovoi and Kovtun on November 1st, after the meeting with Scaramella (Po-210 traces) and at Berezovsky’s office (Po-210 traces), has tested positive for a massive dose of Po-210, which is at odds with earlier reporting: THE barman who served a poisoned […]

Surge And Suppress

Operation surge is definitely more active than even I suspected. It seems today more militants were confronted and sent on their way to Allah as major fighting broke out near Baghdad.

Published by under All General Discussions

I am saddened to hear of the passing of Deborah Orin, one of they few journalists I admired with unflinching respect. I had wondered why her voice had grown silent recently. Now we know why the silence was so disturbing. We have lost a great and important voice in our time. God speed to her, […]

Science Fiction In Litvinenko Case

This is just a summary of some discussions I have seen in response to the Tea Pot news that came out last week and continues to roil the Litvinenko story today. What has been an eye opener for me is how little people generally understand the chemistry and physics of nuclear materials and their “poisoning” […]

But it took over a month after the fateful poisoning for that supposed clue to the death of Alexander Litvinenkp to show up: British officials say police have cracked the murder-by-poison case […]

Fitzgerald’s Folly III

I am still stunned Fitzgerald is trying this case, because it is clear EVERYONE was talking to the press about Wilson and the CIA had basically never made any effort to tell anyone not discuss Wilson and Valerie. Read to the end where today’s witness saw the VP direct Libby to call reporters (Andrea Mitchell […]
