Bit like the view that there apparently weren't any mass-rapes and other sundry war crimes committed by Russian troops at the end of WW2, despite the evidence to the contrary, this must also be lies. After all, just because there's smoke doesn't mean there's a fire, right?
No, they would have poisoned, beaten and carefully tortured them first, just before they were either disposed of or 'accidented in a robbery'. All their family members and friends would be extensively interrogated or watched, most likely both.

Oh, and Sergiy, why not copy and paste the links? weblinking is so last year, and very lazy. And if you had shown the article, the word ALLEGEDLY in the headline would be more prominent.

What would be a reaction to threats of Talibs to kill (later or sooner) Obama's children?
Why has not the case been investigated in time? I don't understand it. It is beyond my understanding. And those who oppose the investigation are heartless, cynical politicos who likely have not own children.
Just imagine that you are threatened that your children can be killed.
