I should say that there is one other thing that has to be satisfied besides verifiability, which is notability - aka is this person important enough
to rate their own article. I don't, however, think that that will end up being a problem with Pieczenik. (The deletion notice will generally be up
for seven days after it was placed, even if it becomes clear that it no longer applies.)
The article is in considerably better shape than it originally was, including some interesting stuff about his relationship to Clancy.
I'm exhausted now as I didn't really sleep last night, but I will post a thread later if people actually want me to.

ummm from the article....
Mr Pieczenik said he was part of a "crisis committee" headed by Francesco Cossiga, the interior minister.Moro was held for 54 days. Mr
Pieczenik said the committee was jolted into action by the fear that Moro would reveal state secrets in an attempt to free himself.
A false statement, attributed to the Red Brigades, was leaked saying that Moro was dead.
Mr Pieczenick said that this had a dual purpose; to prepare the Italian public for the worst, and to let the Red Brigades know that the state would
not negotiate for Moro, and considered him already dead.
The following month, Moro was shot and placed in the back of a car in central Rome, midway between the headquarters of the Communist Party and the
In a documentary on French television last weekend,Mr Cossiga admitted the committee had taken the decision to release the false statement.
The quote from Cossiga is not directly relevant to Pieczenik. Cossiga admitted that the committee that he ran chose to release a false statement, but
he did not speak at all of Pieczenik as far as I know - the statement was made on a documentary, and not to the reporter who did a story on Pieczenik.
If you find a source that shows that Cossiga has spoken about Pieczenik then mention of it belongs on Pieczenik's article, otherwise, the telegraph
article can only be used to illustrate what Pieczenik has claimed about himself.
