For some background, here's my post that I started in another thread (that has no replies) before this thread was created.
Did UK government murder Doctor Kelly?
Was a British scientist murdered by the British government or British agents?
A recap on the story:
We all know now that the UK government made up intelligence to build a case to attack Iraq.
Alistair Campbell, Blair's spin doctor chaired meetings about the production of an intelligence dossier used to sell war on Iraq to the British. He
deliberately manipulated the dossier so for example "may" have weapons was changed to "has" weapons.
Not only that but he was behind the fabrication of another dossier, lifting pages complete with gramatical errors off the internet from a 10 year
out-of-date student thesis. He was never sacked for this. Only praised by Blair.
Before all this came to light, the BBC reported that it had a souce that claimed the government had "sexed-up" its case for war. Obviously we now
know this is true but Campbell went ballistic, touring TV studios demanding to flush out the source. He wanted to go to war against the BBC. He wanted
to demonise the BBC.
Step forward David Kelly. When the government found out this scientist had said he thought he might be the source, they assured him they would not
reveal his name to the media, but they did just that and in days he was put on live TV and grilled before a committee where he denied he was the mole.
Days later he was found dead, allegedly having comitted suicide while walking . Blair ordered an inquiry by a sychophantic law lord that was widely
described as a whitewash that criticised the BBC, but not Blair and his lies. Resignations followed at the BBC only. No inquest was held into David
Kelly's death. No official cause of death was legally established, but paramedics at the scene question if it was suicide.
