Wow, I didn't even know he was dead.

*checks date*

So, it happened while I was in basic training.  I guess I have an excuse.

RexTalionis: We already know what the results of the testing was. Yasser Arafat was likely murdered by polonium-210 poisoning. They announced it earlier yesterday. This is just the press conference.


Well, there is some controversy as to who might have had access to the remains when, but if that is the case the list of potential culprits is relatively small.

Also, shouldn't there be an updated link for this already? The press conference was scheduled for 1245 GMT. It's currently 1432 GMT.

Swiss forensic experts to reveal findings on Arafat case on Thursday

Won't they be surprised when they discover he died from excessive neutrality.

How does his wife support herself so well in Parisl?

What happened to all the money people gave to help the Palestinian people?

He died of AIDS. He was well known for sleeping with underage boys and in the process he contracted HIV during one of his encounters. Rumor has it that Mossad helped with the infecting, but that's just conjecture.

They should dig him up and give him another Nobel Peace Prize.  Makes about as much sense as this nonsense.  Who fargin' cares?  He's dead. Dead. DEAD. DEAD

You mean to tell me someone actually cares if he was murdered? Can't be his widow.  She is spending all those millions of UN/US dollars he swindled on shoes and pool boys, so it can't be her.

This is what amazes me about a lack of custody.

The Germans have announced that the trove of Impressionist artwork valued at $3 billion US is not made up of 1500 works of art. It is now officially made up of 1400 works of art. I figure by the time a complete visual record is released that number could be down around 500 works of art.

Of course she cares!  When he died, the money tap dried up, and she has to live frugally on the millions she has already!

Was he a cigarette smoker? Polonium is naturally occurring in the environment and tobacco has a tendency to slurp it up. Some have suggested that it could also help increase the chance of lung cancer in smokers as it is an alpha emitter, which means it is an atomic tank shell.

Though I am not sure how much it accumulates in the body.

Leader who bombed his enemies and stole from his friends is found to have been murdered:  Well, duh.  And cue the feigned outrage.

And if not, those who benefit from feigned outrage will continue to believe that he was murdered will denounce the findings and feign outrage.

Nah, they covered all that in the testing results.  And... you know... he got extremely ill immediately after eating a meal, and never got better.  and they tested his entire body, and found the highest concentration in his skull... implying it absorbed into his mouth.
 
2013-11-07 11:02:08 AM
Unless he died screaming as body parts were sawed off with a rusty hacksaw, I really don't care.

I would like to have Warren G. Harding's body exhumed.

1. He is supposedly our first black president.

2.  It's possible he was assassinated. It's possible he was poisoned on a trip in the Northwestern US and died from it in California.

Good to know, you have to be cared about to have your death investigated. Time to murder some hobos!

Forget the cause of death.  Have the Swiss figured out what to do with his billions of dollars?

The scumbag was no better than an African warlord hording aid payments for himself.

As long as we're at it, we should exhume the body of Abe Vigoda.  It's possible he was assassinated as well.

Sharon Aide Says Israel Is Considering Killing Arafat
By GREG MYRE
Published: September 15, 2003


"Arafat can no longer be a factor in what happens here," the vice prime minister, Ehud Olmert, told the Israel radio. "The question is: How are we going to do it? Expulsion is certainly one of the options, and killing is also one of the options."

"In my eyes, from a moral point of view, this is no different than the eliminations of others who were involved in activating acts of terror," Mr. Olmert said.

Dig up Ace Frehley too.  Because we have the right to know who killed the greatest guitarist the world has ever known.
