    This is a big, big deal.
    If Russia is responsible for this something needs to be done. Has Putin lost his mind?

    It may be that someone got REALLY careless/sloppy and effed up, or possibly Putin's just in DGAF mode, but this seems like he's playing with very dangerous fire.
    Well, he see this one particularly hot chick and not does she bag he slackjawed, but he lets a "Whoa" slip out

    Putin has not been held accountable yet. What action do you recommend? If they (Russians) are responsible.

    Gotta say, a nerve agent is probably preferable to extrajudicial killings done by drone. Say what you will about Putin, he causes less collateral damage than Obama.

    Not yet, no. I have no idea what can or should be done about this, to whichever party is responsible. It's essentially an attack on Britain, somewhat like an act of war.

    Then there is that “guilt by association “ thing. How does the daughter and the Leo figure into your flip response?

    How many more would've died if it had been a drone strike? My main point though is the selective outrage at assasinations. Putin's not doing anything that hasn't been done by the US.

    I suspect this is weighing heavily, on Paul Manafort's mind ...
