Mr. Guzzanti, who hails from a certain type of journalism that Berlusconi has rendered all too familiar, may be aware that interviews are not fabricated.
I would certainly hope that Mr. Guzzanti's interview with Ghordievskij on December 21st be authentic for the known professional qualities of the Senator. It would however put Mr. Ghordievskij in a very poor light as he would not only have eaten every word he said in the above interview, but have further accused the Repubblica of being in the hands of the KGB.
Mr. Guzzanti does have fair game publishing his assertions while the entire Italian press is on strike- coincidently from December 21st to December 27th- with the well known exception of Berlusconi's yellow rag press. It's not the first time Berlusconi resorts to a news vacuum to launch his campaigns. Marco Follino was ousted as secretary of the satellite party UDC thanks to Giornale's hate campaign during a news strike. So do bear with us, Mr. Guzzanti, as we await patiently the end of the strike to see what the Repubblica may have to say.
Here's the alleged letter:
We are looking forward to a letter to the editor of Repubblica by Colonel Ghordievskij. It would be the proper forum to express any reservations he may have.
I would like to take this opportunity to point out that Mr. Guzzanti's insinuation yesterday that Scaramella was arrested because of Romano Prodi's suit was immediately denied by the Rome Procura. Evidently the Roman prosecutors are also in the hands of the KGB.
The real Mr. Ghordievskij might find Guzzanti's interview with him highly entertaining.
As far as Mr. Guzzanti's moods are concerned we have no reserves.
Limarev, a free contractor who works for the KGB, is behind the extraordinary scheme to kill Litvinenko and frame Scaramella as the killer. The actual hit squad was holed up in the Millenium for two weeks awaiting Scaramella's arrival. Limarev sent the email to Scaramella as bait warning him that there was an operation to kill Litvinenko, Scaramella and Guzzanti. As the most natural act in the world, Scaramella fixed an appointment with Litvinenko to show him the email. (He did not bother to forward it as an email. Evidently, Litvinenko's computer had crashed and he couldn't afford an internet café.) But during the day of the appointment, the hit squad screwed up the poison dose and contaminated the Millenium. Apparently the idea was to poison Litvinenko while he was with Scaramella so as to pass the blame onto the latter.
Mr. Guzzanti's Ghordievskij continues with a wealth of detail. When Litvinenko went back to the Millenium after meeting our candid Mario, he found ambulances everywhere and lots of people feeling sick. Litvinenko put two and two together and leaped to the perfectly logical conclusion that since everybody was sick in the Millenium, he, too, had been poisoned by Mario.
Further, Guzzanti's Ghordievskij asserts that he was going to meet our tender hero, Mario, on the 21st and try to help him through his personal connections in the English press. This because the Italian press is in the hands of the KGB, most notably the Repubblica. The Repubblica interview I've translated here was extorted from Guzzanti's Ghordievskij by putting words in his mouth that he never said (which implies that Bukovskij was also manipulated by the Repubblica.)
Now Limarev has categorically denied ever having written a similar email. Moreover, his testimony in an interview granted about ten months ago (and not nearly two years ago as Guzzanti asserts) under elections but only published this month, is particularly revelatory of the criminal behavior of Scaramella and his international entourage. Limarev also linked the two parliamentary kangaroo commissions, the Mitrokhin and the Telekom Serbija, with surprising revelations about San Marino currently under investigation in Bologna.
I'm afraid Colonel Ghordievskij has yet to rid himself of these two impostors.
