Kasparov is not the only man who is vocal, but a lot of people listen to him. However I seriously doubt anything will happen to him. He hardly has any foothold in politics to be any real threat to annybody that does.

Here's an interesting latest on the Litvinenko saga....

This is a map of all the places the polonium was found during Scotland Yard's investigation. Traces of the radiation were found at a strip club and at a restaurant called Dar Marakesh. The latter is extremely interesting to me, for as far as I can tell, it's a Moroccan restaurant in London. Are we seeing signs that the FSG also met with a Middle Eastern party during the assassination?

Here's the Daily Mail story.

Traces of the polonium-210 were found specifically on a shisha pipe at the restaurant. For those unaware (I had to look it up myself) a shisha is essentially a hooka pipe, like the one below...

Lugovoi: Berezovsky killed Litvinenko & Anna Politkovskaya

Lugovoi claims that British intelligence was involved in the murder of Litvinenko. He also says that Berezovsky killed Litvinenko and Anna Politkovskaya, and that Berezovsky is linked to some other high-profile murders as well...

RIA Novosti: Wrap: Lugovoi says innocent, Berezovsky behind Litvinenko murder

29/ 08/ 2007

The former KGB officer added he was sure that British intelligence was involved in the murder of Litvinenko last November in London.

Lugovoi said that fugitive oligarch Boris Berezovsky was involved in the crime, as well as in the murder of Russian investigative journalist Anna Politkovskaya.

"It was a thoroughly planned provocation. I believe there was to have been the chain 'Politkovskaya - Litvinenko - Tregubova [journalist Yelena Tregubova]," Lugovoi told journalists.


He also said other high-profile murders have direct links to Berezovsky.

"To me, regardless of whether the crime [murder of Politkovskaya] has been solved or not... it is evident who benefited from all these murders, and I think they are directly linked to Berezovsky, just like the murders of [journalist Vladislav] Listyev, [MPs Sergei] Yushenkov, [Vladimir] Golovlyov and all those in his circle to some degree," Lugovoi said.

Lugovoi Not Poisoned With Polonium After All

Lugovoi has admitted to danish journalists from Ekstra Bladet that he wasn't treated for Polonium poisoning after all. They only tested him at the hospital.

During a press conference yesterday in Moscow, Lugovoi was talking about how traces of Polonium was found in London 30 days after he left for Moscow, but that they didn't find any traces of Polonium on the plane in which he was travelling to Moscow. "How can you explain that?", he asked. He didn't mention that Scotland Yard didn't get permission to search that plane for Polonium. He was trying to convince the journalists that he was being framed for the murder.

The danish journalist then asked Lugovoi (Note: My translation from danish) : "What did you do at the hospital all of December? What were you treated for? You have previously said that you, your wife and your children were all exposed to Polonium". Lugovoi, who apparently was surprised by this question, turned his back to the journalist and rushed to an elevator. Before he disappeared into the elevator he shouted that he wasn't treated for anything at the hospital, but only tested.

Interesting... A slip of the tongue?

It is led by the ultra-nationalist Vladimir Zhirinovsky and has 35 of the 446 seats in the Duma, the lower house of the Russian parliament. In an interview yesterday with Moscow regional television's Channel 3, Zhirinovsky confirmed that he was proposing Lugovoi as number two on the party list.

Litvinenko's widow is to sue Russia for compensation...

Financial Times: Litvinenko widow to seek court compensation

November 21 2007

The widow of the dissident spy Alexander Litvinenko is to take her case to the European Court of Human Rights in a bid to force the Russian government to accept responsibility for his death and pay compensation.

The move threatens to revive the controversy over an issue that this year brought relations between Britain and Russia to a post-cold war low but which both governments have since tried to avoid getting in the way of bilateral relations.

Marina Litvinenko is expected to confirm that she is pushing ahead with the long-threatened legal action at a high-profile media event in London this week marking the first anniversary of Mr Litvinenko’s death. The move, thought to have the backing of the exiled Russian billionaire Boris Berezovsky, threatens to complicate British efforts to contain the diplomatic fall-out of the Litvinenko affair.

Mystery Unsolved

The elephant-in-the-room has been brushed under the carpet...

The Specter That Haunts the Death of Litvinenko - March 19, 2008 - The New York Sun (Page 4)

March 19, 2008

In terms of a public relations tactic, it resulted in a brilliant success by putting the blame on Russian stonewalling for the failure to solve the mystery. What it obscured is the elephant-in-the-room that haunts the case: the fact that a crucial component for building an early-stage nuke was smuggled into London in 2006. Was it brought in merely as a murder weapon or as part of a transaction on the international arms market?


The stakes are too high here to leave unresolved the mystery of the smuggled Polonium-210.

reply to post by Hellmutt

Almost two years ago (November 25, 2006) I made a post to this thread speculating on this very possibility, that Letveneko's death was somehow tied to the possible construction of a nuclear device:

Originally posted By Bhadhidar.
By far the most worrisome bit of information I was able to gleen regarding Po-210 is that, due to its facility as a strong neutron source, Polonium-210 can be used as a trigger For Nuclear Weapons!

Here's my take on the matter:

Suppose you belonged to an organization that was assembling a nuclear device in an "enemy" country...

It is certainly unnerving to have my seemingly paranoid musings come back now, backed by the weight of a recognized investigative journalist, to haunt me.

I eat raw fish often, and have never been sick. Don't know about them Soviet sushi joints, but most elsewhere have a high standard of freshness.

I just saw a new documentary on danish tv about Litvinenko's death. It's possibly been made because of the recent Russian hits on british soil. In this documentary, it was never mentioned that Litvinenko outed Flemming Rose (The Mohammad cartoons) as a Russian agent. I'm not surprised. However, I'm surprised they never mentioned in this documentary, that Litvinenko converted to Islam just before he died. Maybe they didn't think it was relevant? Maybe it wasn't? And now, Berezovsky is dead as well. Some say he commited suicide, while others claim he was murdered by Russia. These days, Flemming Rose is host on several danish tv-programs, as a "Russian expert". Maybe Litvinenko was wrong about him being a Russian agent?
