The Livinenko Files: Was he really murdered?

Odd long article, referring to another article by Edward J. Epstein in the New York Sun March 19th [ http://tinyurl.com/5epx7t ]. I dont think the case is made with proper academic rigour...in fact I'm not even sure what the case is, but it seems to allege involvement in the smuggling of nuclear material. Demonstrate the existence of purchaser and seller and I might be more convinced. But it's one of those articles that will become seminal, even if only for the conspiracy theorist. What does it tell us about organised crime? That it's often extremely disorganised, as we have long suspected.
