To Russia With Questions

In December, I went to Moscow to look further into the Litvinenko Affair. The Prosecutor General's office had set up a special unit, the National Investigative Committee, to handle that and other sensitive investigations. It took a resourceful research associate, and a few weeks of vexing paper work, to arrange an appointment. But, once in the door, its investigators proved surprisingly cooperative. See my 4000 word report in today’s New York Sun.
