COMMENT POSTED TO A REVIEW OF A BOOK CALLED A VERY EXPENSIVE POISON IN THE INDEPENDENT

 

I do not see how there can be a “definitive account of Litvinenko murder.”

We do not know accurately what happened, full stop.

And we don’t know what Litvenko himself was up to with British intelligence.

This claim for the book reminds me much of claims for latest book on the Kennedy assassination, a crime whose true details are hidden to this day.

Speaking of polonium in someone’s tea, about which there seems to be no end of talk and theories, what about the identical poison used on Yasser Arafat?

He was a much more important figure in the world than Litvenko, and in his case the polonium was in his toothpaste.

Just who in the Middle East had access to a radioactive element?

And just who had a powerful motive?

The answer seems pretty obvious, but we see no on-going controversy in a case of much greater consequences.

But of course the Arafat case offers no opportunity to attack Russia’s leader.
