But once again, as always, Backes misrepresents my positions. I never denied that Altgens died of carbon monoxide poisoning. But, I suspect it wasn't an accident.
But first, let's look at another case of CO poisoning, from 2005, that of Zurab Zhavania, who was the Prime Minister of the country of Georgia.
This is from the New Eastern Outlook Journal:
"The case of former Georgian Prime Minister Zurab Zhvania, who was found dead in a rented flat in suspicious circumstances back in February 2005, is finally being reexamined by the Georgian courts. No one has ever believed the official account of his death, and it is widely believed that former president Mikheil Saakashvili either ordered it or was directly involved."
"Zhvania’s body was initially examined by Georgian forensic experts. When their conclusions did not fit the official story, they were silenced and US experts brought in to contradict them. Recently those original experts, and other witnesses, have been coming forward to tell what they know."
"According to Silverman, various pieces of evidence which were in the flat where Zhvania was found dead were destroyed on the orders of FBI agent Bryan Paarmann, who was leading the imported investigation team. Silverman maintains that Paarmann had been directed to destroy the evidence by his US paymasters because Zhvania was the only person able to normalize relations with Russia. Another important reason for his demise was that Zhvania didn’t want Georgia to become the transit country for a wide range of illegal weapons, as the US subsequently succeeded in making it."
The article goes on to examine the case, but clearly, many people suspect, to this day, that Zhvania was murdered. I'll give you the link to the article.
Well, the evidence in the Altgens case is every bit as suspicious, or more so.
Let's consider the facts: First, the earliest reports didn't even mention carbon monoxide as the cause of death. Read this:
That article appeared three days after they were found dead. And Clara's nephew actually had the balls to say that the family believed that both died of natural causes? Well, death by carbon monoxide is certainly not a natural cause. Natural causes means dying of some pathology or from the decrepitude of old age. But no poisoning death can be considered a natural cause; only an unnatural cause. There is no mention of carbon monoxide there; just that they died of natural causes.
He mentioned that both had been suffering from the flu. Well, the rotten, no-good CDC tells us that 36.000 Americans die every year from the flu- so you better get your fucking flu shot.
And isn't that the implication? That they died from the flu?
Again, no mention of carbon monoxide. But, why wouldn't they have known about the carbon monoxide three days later?
Carbon monoxide poisoning produces a visible effect: a cherry red complexion. So, when their bodies were found, they would have looked pink if it was from CO poisoning. And that would have led to the diagnosis in short order; you just do a blood test.
Now, let's look at another article, this one from the New York Times from December 17, so two days later. Now, we get to the furnace talk:
