It was a terrible shock to find out that Boris Korczak had died. The news was taken very badly by everyone and was taken especially badly by Boris Korczak himself.
The news came one day in the form of a book which was titled “America the Vulnerable: How Our Government is Failing to Protect Us from Terrorism” and was written by Joseph D. Douglas Jr. & Neil C. Livingston.
It turns out that Boris had been dead all these years and nobody bothered to tell him.
Well, Boris wasn’t about to take his death lying down so he made a few phone calls and ended up having lunch with Mr. Joseph D. Douglas.
To make a long story short, Mr. Douglas was very happy to hear about Boris’ un-demise and gladly signed a copy of his book for Boris in which he welcomed him back among the living.
SOME MORE CONFUSING REPORT ALLEGEDLY SOURCED FROM THE CIA.
Korczak Assasination (Attempt?)
• In 1980, Boris Korczak, a Soviet citizen who had been a CIA double agent was shopping in Tyson’s Corner, VA, when he felt a slight sting: “something like a mosquito bite.”
• After a few hours, he developed a temperature of 106 degrees, then his temperature dropped sharply.
• Internal bleeding and and a irregular heartbeat ensued.
• A few days later, he extracted a tiny metal ball from his “mosquito bite.”
• Korczak survived, and is now a permanent U.S. resident
An alternative account, which apparently originated with the intelligence community and has been reported by several sources including J. A. F. Compton, incorrectly reports that Korczak died en route to Fairfax Hospital.
FROM “AMERICA THE VULNERABLE” by Joseph D. Douglas, Jr. and Neil C. Livingstone
Intelligence sources in the West say that a similar pellet-firing weapon has been responsible for at least six assassinations in recent years, including a CIA double agent, Boris Korczak, who was hit at Tyson’s Corner, Virginia. Korczak was rushed to Fairfax hospital, where a major fight developed between the CIA and the Soviets over custody of the body. The CIA held off the Soviets until the cause of Korczak’s death was fixed, which turned out to be a small platinum-iridium pellet, which presumably contained ricin. The CIA got the pellet; the Soviets got the body, which they immediately shipped to Ru.ssia on an Aeroflot plane from which all passengers were excluded. Ironically, the ricin toxin umbrella weapon might be the offspring or copy of a similar U.S. pellet weapon (developed for use with saxitoXin or ricin) that was publicized during the 1976 Church Committee hearings on CIA activities.
