Passings

Former British Minister, and undersecretary of State for War John Profumo died last Thursday night. His entanglement with sex-spy Christine Keeler and her handler Stephen Ward broke the underground games of domestic ops onto the tabloid headlines in the UK in 1963.

It is uncertain whether or not Ward, the mastermind behind the Profumo affair, actually worked for the KGB under Soviet naval attache Yevgeny Ivanov; or whether he was a double agent loyal to MI5 who attempted to compromise Ivanov by planting Keeler on him. Ward committed suicide shortly after the scandal broke, and UK Intel isn't saying Jack, so we probably won't know Ward's true employer for some time.

Of course, with the Cambridge Circus and the infiltration of KGB agent Kim Philby into the top echelon of MI5, it's kinda hard to determine where British Intel ends and Soviet Intel begins in the 1960s.

In breaking news, former Yugoslavian President Slobodan Milosevic was found dead in his jail cell earlier today. We're just gonna have to watch this story as it develops. The wire's reporting that death was due to natural causes, an occupational hazard for those who opposed multinational corporate hegemony and the dictates of the World Bank.

But Milsovic's son, Marko, has already hinted at a possible western conspiracy against his father. AP quotes him as saying, "All responsibility for this lies on the shoulders of the international tribunal. He asked for treatment several months ago, they knew this. . . They drove him to this as they didn't want to let him out alive."

**UPDATE**

Disinfo is reporting that Milosevic's blood contained trace elements of a drug that negates the effects of heart medications.
