Man. This took long enough. Perhaps they were
waiting for PJPII to die before getting into this.

Excerpt




By VICTOR L. SIMPSON
Associated Press Writer
March 2, 2006

An Italian parliamentary commission concluded "beyond any reasonable
doubt" that the Soviet Union was behind the 1981 attempt to kill Pope
John Paul II _ a theory long alleged but never proved, according to a draft
report made available Thursday.

"This commission believes, beyond any reasonable doubt, that the leaders
of the Soviet Union took the initiative to eliminate the pope Karol Wojtyla,"
said a draft of the commission's report obtained by The Associated Press.

The report also said a photograph shows that a Bulgarian man acquitted of
involvement in the May 13, 1981, assassination attempt was in St. Peter's
Square when the pontiff was shot by Mehmet Ali Agca.

My thoughts exactly, they took their Sweet time. I would love to know how this would have been handled had the attempt been successful. Another "lone-gunman" in the style of Lee Harvey-Oswald/Mark Chapman?

I also find it quite incredible that this plan was put into action at all, the Catholic church is a massive target [membership at the end of 2003: 1,085,557,000] and to assassinate the leader seems to me audacious in the extreme.

Thirdly, the motive behind the attempted slaying was apparently the Popes ties to the democracy-linked Solidarity labour movement in Poland. I know nothing of this group, or their struggle, but it makes me wonder which other people in our history have been removed because of the influence they have held over certain sections of the earths population.

Mark Chapman, ive always have wondered about that.
Since John Lennon was a massive influence on the public.
Very sad that we have lost this man.
JFK, martin luther king (sp), and the untold amount of deaths by suspicious circumstances.
Man, this world is screwed.

Interesting. If they were willing to kill the head of the catholic church, you think they'd be willing to shoot an US President? I was thinking the other night that if there was a conspiracy to kill JFK, it's kind of odd that all the evidence points to a communist who had lived in the Soviet Union and yet most all the theories accuse the CIA, LBJ, FBI... I'm not saying the USSR killed Kennedy or that there was even a conspiracy. It's just odd how more people today believe it was a conspiracy than 40 years ago and the theories point to everyone but who the evidence points to. Conspiracy or not, maybe someone has been messing with the American mind.
