When former FSB lieutenant Alexander Litvinenko died from deliberate radiation poisoning on November 23, 2006, it came as little surprise that many accusatory fingers were pointing at the Kremlin. Litvinenko’s revelations concerning the FSB and Putin had earned him many enemies amongst the Russian elites. Deputy Chairman of the Russian parliament’s security committee, Viktor Ilyukhin, probably hit the nail on the head when he stated:
“That former KGB officer [Litvinenko] had been irritating the Russian authorities for a long time and possibly knew some state secrets. So when our special services got the chance to operate not only inside but outside the country, they decided to get rid of him.” (No pagination)
It comes as little surprise that Litvinenko’s allegations would create so much “irritation” for the Russian authorities. They suggest that the “fall of communism” was one of the greatest deceptions of the last century. All of the Russian “liberalization” initiatives seem to have been mere cosmetic alterations with no sincerity behind them at all. This move has been quite effective. It has caused the Western elite (which are just as criminal and conspiratorial as the Russian elite) to believe that Russia had ceased to be a major competitor in the crusade to establish a New World Order. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, the Russian elite continued building a dictatorial system. That system has eschewed the hammer and sickle, but has embodied all of the principles of those symbols. Litvinenko’s friend, Alex Goldfarb, seemed to be implying just such a contention while on Anderson Cooper 360 Degrees. Goldfarb stated:
And it is very important that the west recognizes before it is too late. This country is drifting into a kind of a police state which will become a threat to the world. And if we fail to recognize it now, it will be to our own peril. And this is probably one of the last wake-up calls. (No pagination)
If Litvinenko’s words are, as Goldfarb suggested, the last wake-up call, then the words of KGB defector Anatoliy Golitsyn can be considered one of the first.
The Scam Predicted
Golitsyn was a high level KGB agent who defected to the United States in 1961. He brought with him several startling prognostications concerning a counterfeit liberalization campaign in the Soviet Union, which he contended would lead to a hoaxed “fall of communism.” This feigned decline in Soviet power was designed to lure the Western elite into a trap. Believing the liberalization campaigns to be genuine, the Establishment would pledge logistical and financial support to the emergent republics of the former Soviet Union. Meanwhile, the communist elite would use this Western assistance to restore their waning power.
