Dubai police now say that they have identified 26 suspects in the assassination of Mahmoud al-Mabhouh — widely believed to be a Mossad operation. The government also released toxicology reports that show that Al-Mabhouh was first drugged and then suffocated.
The tests show that al-Mabhouh was injected with succinylcholine, a drug sometimes used as an anesthetic, before he was suffocated. They saw that there were signs that he resisted.
Police also say that they have DNA evidence, which could play a critical role in the expanding search for the killers.
More interesting is that the government now believes that not all of the passports were stolen — some used their own passports.

Interesting, that’s a cruel way to kill somebody. Succinylcholine is a muscle relaxant, not an anesthetic. They paralyzed him and then suffocated him. Ow…
They could have just given him multiple injections of concentrated KCl after the succinylcholine… similar to how we execute criminals here, except for skipping the general anesthetic in between. That would surely hurt like hell. There are lots of ways to make people suffer after an injection of succinylcholine. But I think the Israelis know more about this than I do.
Al-Mabhouh — an infamous murderer — notorioiusly travelled on false passports (generally from Arab countries). Why is there so little objection to that? And why are Western countries crying that this assassin died the way he lived? If Britain and Australia had had any guts, they would have created false papers for Israel to use, and said, “the secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions” or something to that effect.
I understand these folk are pretty popular in Israel and applications for employment are way up at Mossad.
Amanpour interviewed Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak yesterday. Everytime when asked he refuse to comment but the shit eating grin he had on his face each time she asked was, I don’t know, I don’t think we’ve heard it all yet. Either they did it and are proud or they know who did it and are letting everyone blame them and they will disclose who did. Hard to tell by the looks he gives Amanpour
Barak declined to comment on the assassination of a top Hamas official in Dubai last month that many are blaming on Israel’s external intelligence service, Mossad.
But he did talk about an undercover mission he took part in back in 1973 when he dressed up as a woman. That mission ended with the killing of three high-ranking Palestinian Liberation Organization men in Beirut.
“I never killed Palestinians per se,” he said. “I killed terrorists who were directly responsible for the killing – indiscriminate killing – of civilians.”
26 People? Is this that Poe’s Law that nal spoke of yesterday? This seems like too large of a contingent to do something like this but at the same time is also seems possible that it could happened.
The concern that I have is cloning DNA possible? I have read about Recombinant DNA/gene cloning, this is kinda scary especially if the evidence is planted.
