Litvinenko: Case closed
Frank Flynn – The Irish Bulletin Blogspot November 30, 2006
On a day in which the Alexander Litvinenko scandal hit Ireland with the convenient - but likely unrelated - "poisoning" of former Russian Prime Minister, Yegor Gaider on these shores, authoritative sources close, and exclusive, to this blog have learned of the definitive solution to the Litvinenko "mystery".
It seems that days before the poisoning of the former KGB agent hit the headlines, Russia and the government of the United Kingdom (I stress the government, not any particular person within that structure) were preparing to sign an extradition treaty guaranteeing mutual co-operation in transferring criminal elements from one country to the other, as the need arises.
Of course, top of that extradition list would be one Mr. Boris Berezovsky, who is wanted by the Russian authorities for a variety of crimes. Facing the dock for looting Russia of billions - ostensibly for the benefit of his "motherland" of Israel - it's clear that the former oligarch, a close friend of Blair, Bush and co., needed a distraction - and quickly. The Russians were fully aware of this from the beginning, thus explaining their calm, collected approach to the contrived "East-West crisis".
Draw your own conclusions, but Berezovsky's role in this whole affair has been eagerly downplayed by corrupt elements within British media and political circles, all in a bid to launch egregious attacks against President Vladimir Putin, who has consistently sought to curb bids for a neo-con world hegemony.
For Berezovsky, however, and his "friends in high places", it appears that the game is well and truly up.
You heard it here first, folks...
