On the Inexhaustible Subject of the Russians

My occasional sparring partner Mark Adomanis undergoes an amusingly adversarial interview with La Russophobe, with which he talks in a bit more depth about my inevitably controversial assertions to the effect that certain powerful Russians may have killed other Russians for political gain. They go on to argue about Russia in general and whether or not Adomanis is being mean to certain pro-Western Russian activists.

If you happen to be interested in the possibility that Putin’s FSB perpetrated the 1999 Russia apartment bombings, you may find my main argument here, and my response to a counter-argument by the Russian liberal Sergey Romanoff here. And here are some awesome videos of Prodigy’s 1997 Moscow concert, which thankfully was not blown up by the FSB.

    My favorite part was when some of the commenters at LR said that, because I was “anti-freedom,” I should be investigated by the CIA and the FBI and stripped of my citizenship. Wingnuts, you just HAVE to love them!

    About Me

    I'm the author of Flock of Dodos: Behind Modern Creationism, Intelligent Design, and the Easter Bunny; my second book, Hot, Fat & Clouded: The Amazing and Amusing Failures of America’s Chattering Class (Being a Partial Record of the Incompetence of Our Republic's Mainstream Pundits, Most of Whom Deserve to be Exiled or at Least Have Their Cars Vandalized), will be released in 2010. I'm a contributor to Vanity Fair, The Huffington Post, Skeptic, and The Onion, and my work has appeared in dozens of other publications and outlets. I also serve as director of communications for Enlighten the Vote, a political action committee dedicated to the advancement of the Establishment Clause.
