Talk about behind the ball — an Italian investigation reports that the Soviets were behind Ali Agca’s assassination attempt on Pope John Paull II in 1981. I know the Italian life is leisurely, but this is ridiculous. (hat tip: Icarus Fallen)
UPDATE: I should mention that Marek Jan Chodakiewicz has an excellent article detailing the Soviets’ secret file on JPII in our March issue. But you’ll only know if you subscribe — a digital subscription is a measly $19.95 a year. And knowing’s half the battle.
