The Naked Pope

Vanni Nistico, press officer of the Socialist Party of Italy, says that Liccio Gelli once showed him some photos of Pope John Paul II standing naked next to his swimming pool. Gelli commented,"If it's possible to take these pictures of the Pope, imagine how easy it is to shoot him." Vanni says he has no idea what use Gelli intended to make of the photos, but David Yallop, in his book on the P2 Consiracy, has evidence that Gelli was blackmailing some of the most important people in Italy.
