Kevin Mooney, The Daily Signal: CIA Confirmed Russians’ Role in Shooting of Pope John Paul II, Reagan Biographer Writes

Contrary to what “pragmatists” in U.S. government agencies concluded, top officials with the Soviet Union were behind the 1981 assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II, a biographer of Ronald Reagan told The Daily Signal in an exclusive interview.

WNU Editor: Did Soviet leader Brezhnev and KGB head Andropov have a hand in the attempted assassination of Pope John Paul II?

The guy that shot the Pope was a muslim, the anti Russian Propaganda is really becoming ridiculous, I wonder if the people running the anti Russian Campaign ever heard of the story the Boy That Called Wolf, because if this BS keeps up when they do finally tell the truth nobody will believe it. Not that the people behind this crap would recognize the truth if it bit them on the arse.

This is an old story. I am not one for believing conspiracies, but conspiracies make good stories nonetheless.

This is an old true story. The closest you can get to the true story with out reading the intelligence report is to read Tom Clancy's red rabbit. He was told the story and wrote about it.
