Historian: More Evidence Commies Tried To Kill JPII

Mehmet Ali Agca met repeatedly with Soviet intel handlers in the months ­before he made his unsuccessful attempt on Saint John Paul II’s life on May 13, 1981, notes George Weigel at First Things. “What we do not have is documentary evidence that all of this was done on the direct orders of [KGB boss] Yuri] Andropov or Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev or both.” But now intriguing new evidence is coming to light. It’s all “thanks to an achingly dull, three-volume history of the schedule of Leonid Brezhnev, published three years ago.” Trawling through it, Polish historian Andrzej Grajewski found that although “Brezhnev did not meet all that often with Andropov, the KGB spymaster . . . the tempo of their meetings increased dramatically in April and May 1981, as did the frequency of their phone conversations.” On the fateful day, moreover, Brezhnev cleared his schedule, as if (Grajewski writes) his “attention was not absorbed by acting, directing, managing — but perhaps waiting for something to happen.” Weigel archly concludes: “Inquiring minds wonder.”

Now I like to think that I am up on all the Conspiracy Theories, but somehow I missed this one.

Upon reflection, it seem to have some some evidence to support it.

    If that particular pope had died, then perhaps all those pervert priests and criminal bishops might not have destroyed the lives of all those innocent children.
