A sighting of "Lenin" at mrzine.org.  "Lenin" begins very provocatively:

The Slaying of Jean Charles de Menezes
by Richard Seymour

There was a remarkable moment in London last month when the Israeli  
Defence Force looked more restrained than the Metropolitan Police.  
Having shot an unarmed civilian in the head seven times (and once in  
the shoulder), the Metropolitan Police was suddenly obliged to  
explain to the public a policy that had been decided on in secret.  
The guidelines of Operation Kratos, designed in response to 9/11,  
said that suspected suicide bombers must be shot in the head. This  
was necessary, the police said, in order to stop hand movement. If an  
officer is reasonably certain he is faced with a suicide bomber, he  
must destroy the brain "instantly, utterly," as former Met Police  
commissioner Lord Stevens explained to the News of the World tabloid. 
1  That weekend, the IDF -- who helped train UK police in handling  
suicide bombers2 -- managed to intercept a would-be suicide bomber  
and prevent him from detonating himself. No shots were fired; a man  
with an explosives belt strapped to him left the scene alive.3

I hope for more "Lenin" sightings at mrzine.org.
