Ex-Russian Spy Dies

They've ruled out thallium and radioactive poisoning, but in the end doctors just couldn't save him:

Former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko has died in hospital three weeks after apparently being poisoned in London.

[...]

Friends have said the ex-KGB agent was poisoned because of his criticism of Russian President Vladimir Putin - Russia has denied any involvement.

Scotland Yard said they were now investigating "an unexplained death".
Litvinenko was a strong critic of Russia's Vladmir Putin. Considering he was investigating the shooting death of fellow critic, journalist Anna Politkovskaya, things don't look good for Putin at all.

Did he...?

Nahh. Bush looked into Pootie Poot's eyes and judged him "straightforward and trustworthy".

Bush couldn't be so wrong, could he?
