The framing of Vladimir Putin

Martin Kelly has a brilliant post about the wave of Putinophobia sweeping the western media following the alleged poisoning of an associate of the notorious oligarch Boris Berezkovsky in London.
Innocent until proven guilty? If you're a Russian leader who doesn't do what the neo-cons want, you're guilty as charged.

And here's an excellent piece on the same subject by Justin Raimondo of anti-war.com. Please do click on his link to the 'American Committee for Peace in Chechnya' - the names of its members is really quite revealing.
Hard-core neo-cons linking up with radical Islamic extremists? Now where have we heard that one before?

I 've just heard that he has been x-rayed and three unusual objects have been found. Would you wait three days to do an x-ray in a case of this importance?!?!

It does get curiouser and curiouser. First they said that he was poisoned, even naming the poison and now they have discounted that diagnosis. Would you not insist on a thorough investigation if you were in the same sitaution? The doctors had found these strange objects in his body as far back as last Tuesday. Strange how they did nothing about it though....I would leave no stone unturned to find a reason and a possible cure, wouldn't everyone?
