Vatican accuses disgraced Polish prelate of misleading the pope
Vatican City - The Vatican on Monday accused one of Poland's leading prelates, Stanislaw Wielgus, of misleading Pope Benedict XVI by failing to reveal the true nature of his ties with communist-era secret agents.
According to Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re, head of the church's Congregation for Bishops, the Vatican had no knowledge of the allegations at the time of his December 6 appointment.
'When Monsignor Wielgus was nominated (archbishop of Warsaw) we knew nothing of his collaboration with the secret service,' Battista Re told Italian daily Corriere della Sera.
Are we really supposed to believe this?
