USSR as assassins

This is shocking news, just shocking. An Italian parliamentary investigative commission said in a report that the leaders of the former

Soviet Union were behind the assassination attempt against Pope John Paul II in 1981. I can’t believe it. I’m utterly surprised and shocked.

It doesn’t seem like they were in any hurry to conclude their investigation.

But, as the old saw goes: "Better late than never."


The public doesn’t understand things like this unless they’re hammered home.

While the report isn’t news to those of us in the know, the masses are never in the know. That’s why it’s important -- if it’s sufficiently publicized. And we’re the ones who need to do it. The dinosaur media won’t.

As Dan said, "Better late than never."

That’s right. We could never read about it, for instance here:

Big difference between one story and major coverage, Fung.

So, does Tom Clancy get his ideas from the Italian investigation committee, or vice versa?
