    You do understand that radiation has been used by governments to assassinate enemies and it has nothing to do with 'space guns'?

    "New toxicological and radio-toxicological investigations were performed, demonstrating unexpectedly high levels of polonium-210 and lead-210 activity in many of the analysed specimens" taken from Arafat's ribs, pelvis and soil that had absorbed his bodily fluids, the report said.

    At a news conference to explain their findings, Francois Bochud said such high levels of polonium, "by definition... indicates third party involvement... Our results offer moderate backing for the theory of poisoning".
    But he added a note of caution: "Was polonium the cause of the death for certain? The answer is no, we cannot show categorically that hypothesis that the poisoning caused was this or that."

    Right - but we need to note that the material's half-life meant it would have been far harder to detect by that time frame, since the test were not done quickly, as I recall.

    Agreed. The evidence is not conclusive, but it is compelling.

    If we accept the fact that Arafat has excessive amounts of polonium-210 in his tissue samples and personal items such as clothing, hairbrushes, etc. the question becomes, "Who are the most likely suspects?"

    There's one and only one, in my opinion.

    Same here. There is only one good suspect. If there are other suspects, maybe someone will point them out.

    Can you ascribe a motive to "Putin?" Americans always need a boogeyman.

    No one is suggesting Putin killed Arafat. The point was that he has used this method to assassinate.

    Let's drop Putin: his only relevance to this is showing that governments can and have assassinated this way, not that he was involved in this case.
