Was Arafat Assassinated?!

Yassir ArafatIn November 2012 three teams, French, Swiss, and Russian, exhumed Palestinian President Yasser Arafat to try to determine his cause of death. Independently, they took samples from his body, mausoleum, and surroundings. The French and the Russians concluded that he died of natural causes. The Swiss, however, say their analyses "moderately support the proposition" that Arafat was poisoned with a lethal dose of Polonium-210 (in November 2013 they released a comprehensive technical report). Given their meticulously assembled evidence the Swiss conclusion seems worded, perhaps, with an overabundance of caution. Nevertheless, they may well be right in that we'll never know for certain what happened. To get a better sense of the Swiss perspective I turned to their lead author, Dr. Patrice Mangin, one of the world's top forensic pathologists. Total runtime twenty seven minutes. Occultae inimīcitiae magis timendae sunt quam apertae.
