It's Cold in here

Earlier I noted that the BBC was reporting a suspicious poisoning in London. At the time, I speculated that the poisoning was a terrorist attack. But now, it seems that, in a worrying return to Cold War tactics, ex-KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko was given a "potentially lethal" dose of thallium.

Now that's hardly the tactic of an ally in the war on terror. But it is, unfortunately, exactly the kind of tactic one has come to expect from Vladimir Putin. More later.
