British weapons expert David Kelly, who died in July 2003 from cuts to his wrist, said in October 2002 that Iraq had banned weapons and posed an immediate threat. In a BBC interview never aired, Kelly spoke only a month after the weapons dossier was delivered to Parliament.
 

Kelly's interview lies somewhere in the middle of Tony Blair's claim that Iraq WMDs could be deployed in 45 minutes and anti-war proponents who believe Iraq did not have any weapons at all. The late scientist said that he believed the weapons were there, and could be used in a matter of days or weeks.

"Yes there is," Kelly responded to the question of whether there was an immediate threat. "Even if they're not actually filled and deployed today, the capability exists to get them filled and deployed within a matter of days and weeks. So yes, there is a threat."

Kelly is believed to have committed suicide after being revealed as the apparent source for the claims that the British government exaggerated claims on Iraq's threat.

The coroner is considering reopening an inquiry on David Kelly's death.

"The Iraq Survey Group was continuing its search for the weapons, the programmes behind them and how they were hidden, he added."


Question, isn't there another report coming out soon on the issue of Iraq's WMD? Hoon Report or something of that nature? If so, the timing of this BBC article is relevant.
