Serbian Bacon

Is Russia Heading back towards the Cold War? Are we seeing the beginnings of a Russian Version of Canadian Bacon? It looks like they are:

The Russian Foreign Ministry said Tuesday it will not renew the accreditation of ABC-TV after it broadcast an interview with a notorious Chechen warlord.

the American television channel would be considered "undesirable" for contacts with all Russian state agencies...[after an interwiew] with Shamil Basayev

In the interview conducted by Russian journalist Andrei Babitsky, Basayev, who has a $10 million bounty on his head, said he was plotting more attacks.

I agree with Russia on this on. We have an obligation to protect the families of those victims by bringing certain people to justice. During the interview the warlord acknowledged his involvement in attacks which cost the lives of many people. I sure hope ABC got the ratings they were looking for.
