Boris Nemtsov addendum…

I just posted the Times story as soon as it broke yesterday in semi-amazement and without thinking too much.  And then the delayed response dawns on you that is so blatantly obvious you can’t believe it was delayed.  The Question: how can he possibly believe that the world won’t think that the Nemtsov hit was ordered by him — or just carried out “on his behalf” without being told so that he can claim clean hands?  And then you realize — he doesn’t care if the world thinks that; he’s probably sure that that’s exactly what the world does think, in fact, but just doesn’t care.  Το καθίκι…  Just that simple.  What are they going to do about it anyway?
