Spy poisoning plot letter


Spy poisoning plot thickens.  Understand they've been using polonium-210 for poisoning since the 50's.  Wonder if this has anything to do with Russia selling Iran nuclear equipment, and rumors of Russian scientists helping Saddam remove WMD's prior to the US going in to liberate it?????????????????? 

"Letters 'revealed secret hit squad'

"Detectives are investigating letters smuggled out of Russia purporting to show the existence of a secret squad set up to target poisoned spy Alexander Litvinenko and others."........

............"Mr Trepashkin, who worked for the KGB's successor the FSB until 1997, was tried in 2004, accused of being a British spy and passing secret information to Mr Litvinenko and his close friend the tycoon Boris Berezovsky, both exiled in London.".............
......."The letters include one to Mr Litvinenko which he never received, as well as one to his friend Mr Goldfarb. In the message to Mr Litvinenko on November 20, Mr Trepashkin recalls a conversation in August 2002 in which he warned Mr Litvinenko - already living in London - that he and his family were at risk from the FSB.
Mr Trepashkin tells his friend that he had met an FSB contact near a railway station in Russia who told him that a "very serious group" had been set up, which "will knock out all those associated with Berezovsky and Litvinenko". .......

This story is getting better every day, isn't it? I enjoy reading spy novels and the like, but this plot beats them all.

Reminds me of the 60's James Bond movies, or on a lighter note Mad Magazine's "Spy vs. Spy."

On a metaphysical note I've read that all the stuff that's been hidden will be revealed, so looks like this one is following that predicted path. Wonder whose doorstep it's going to be ultimately delivered to???? Could Litvinenko have indeed named his killer???? Yes, Rick interesting but from a distance.

James Bond was the first thing to come to mind. Is this a British promo for Casino Royale?

The "high-techness" of the poison involved is leading them right to the perpetrators. These assassins were a little too smart for their own good. It'll never get to Putin but I'm guessing it's going to be pretty close.

It was documented that Russian scientists were in Iraq helping to remove weapons or biologicals prior to our going in, so seem to be up to their old tricks of arming rogue nations.

Iraq was also watched via satellite trucking them in to Lebanon and Syria ... documented by the Mossad, so Russia's fingerprints may be on that too.

Perhaps some of the spies dispatched to bring about assassinations will fall victim to their own poison conjure and have soul cleansing death bed confessions blowing the lid off lots of well kept secrets.
