The crooked British government will find a way of ridiculing and silencing truthseekers.But it is of great
importance that efforts are made to find and proclaim the truth.Thanks for the update,Bud ...



Petty anglofagian politicians and house hogs should never be trusted. Anglofagia constantly demonstrates that it can't make one single step without showing of its true 2 faces.

Let them stay in their own sheat.

David Kelly was assassinated say British doctors

The fact that Britain is once again investigating its role in the Iraq blunder is praiseworthy.

The previous Hutton and Butler inquiries were disappointing to put it mildly. Perhaps because they were undertaken at a time when the British establishment was still on the defensive and when preserving the reputation of the prime minister took precedence over exhuming the truth. Or, alternatively, because they took place when British troops were still in theater when damaging revelations could have seriously affected morale and/or relations with Britain’s Washington ally.

Certainly, the ongoing inquiry into events leading up to the 2003 invasion and its aftermath, led by Sir John Chilcot, a Privy Council member and former civil servant, appears to be a different animal entirely, with diplomats, ministers and mandarins eager to distance themselves from what is now universally acknowledged to have been a blunder.

It’s early days yet, but the likelihood is that Tony Blair will end up with a lot of explaining to do. It’s also likely that Teflon man will use his silvered tongue, slick charm and boyish good humor to wriggle out of any culpability.

Witnesses that were close to him during the run-up indicate that legal advisers who believed regime change was illegal were leaned on to revise their opinions. Others say Blair had secretly drawn-up war plans nine months before the invasion when he was publicly adamant that conflict wasn’t on the cards. And there are accusations that in April 2002, Blair “signed a blood pact” with George W. Bush behind closed doors during a visit to his Crawford Ranch in Texas when the two men knelt and prayed together.

Thereafter, Blair was a man with a mission to bully his Cabinet into rubber-stamping the misadventure and do everything possible to pull the wool over the eyes of a highly skeptical public as to the war’s motivation and legality. At that time, nobody knew whether Saddam Hussein possessed weapons of mass destruction. There was no hard evidence, only guesswork based on the earlier ambitions of Iraq’s former leader to build a nuclear bomb following Israel’s 1981 bombing of Iraq’s Tammuz-1 reactor at Tuwaitha along with his use of US-supplied chemical weapons during Iraq’s war with Iran.

In fact, Saddam terminated his nuclear weapons program and ordered his Republican Guards to destroy his country’s stockpiles of chemical weapons in 1991 following the Gulf War when clandestine procurements were no longer feasible. Despite US and UK protestations to the contrary, that was no secret.

When Saddam’s son-in-law, the former head of Iraq’s nuclear, chemical, biological and missile programs Hussein Kamel, defected to Jordan in 1995, he spilled the beans to the CIA, UN and British intelligence officers. Notes of one UN interrogation show that Kamel was a gold mine of detailed information, and that he was generally believed.

At the time, Kamel’s testimony was eminently credible because he had no intention of returning to his home country until Saddam Hussein was toppled. In the event, dissatisfied with his welcome and status in Jordan, he allowed himself to be lured back by false promises and was murdered along with codefector and brother Saddam Kamel.

So the truth was out there all the time. But that didn’t deter Tony Blair from concocting dodgy and ‘sexed-up’ dossiers on Iraq’s WMD to the effect Iraq had the capability to attack Britain’s interests within 45-minutes of his giving the order. His paucity of information was such that No. 10 resorted to filching portions of a student’s thesis on the subject from the Internet, typos and all.

Those of us who were against the invasion from day one could easily penetrate the slew of fabrications. Yet, Blair’s Cabinet along with the Labour Party hierarchy submitted meekly to bamboozling with the exception of the late Robin Cook, then Leader of the House of Commons, who resigned his post because he could not support a war “without international agreement or domestic support.”

Cook also doubted Iraq’s WMD capabilities and deplored US impatience with UN weapons inspectors when Israel’s illegal nuclear weapons were openly tolerated. He was belatedly followed by former Secretary of State for International Development Clare Short. Both were relegated to the back benches and were treated as party renegades. It’s a great shame that Blair’s friend and confidante Lord Goldsmith, then attorney general, lacked the guts to follow suit.

A letter written by Goldsmith in July, 2002 proves that he initially believed regime change was a breach of international law and the UN Charter. Thereafter, he was gagged from speaking publicly, barred from attending Cabinet meetings, and “pinned to the wall” by Blair’s closest aides to revise his opinion, which, in fact, he later did.

Similarly skeptical was biological weapons expert and former UN weapons inspector Dr. David Kelly who told BBC journalist Andrew Gilligan in confidence that Blair’s 45-minute claim was dubious. However, Gilligan disclosed that he was his source when Kelly was dragged before the Foreign Affairs Select Committee, which treated him roughly. Two days later, his body was discovered in a wood a mile away from his home. He had a cut wrist and was later found to have ingested 29 painkillers. The Hutton inquiry pronounced that his death was suicide. Now six prominent British doctors are challenging that finding. They are accusing the authorities of “perverting the course of justice” and are taking legal action to get the case reopened. They claim that Kelly’s fingerprints were not on the knife used to cut his wrist and in any case, the cut wasn’t deep enough to cause him to bleed to death. They further insist that the chemicals found in his system were not of sufficient quantity to have killed him.

One of the six, trauma expert David Halpin says Kelly may have been assassinated and hints of a conspiracy cover-up. But before they can procure an inquest they have to obtain the permission of Baroness Scotland, Britain’s current attorney general. But it’s doubtful whether she will bless this without receipt of new evidence.

The whole truth about the Iraq War and Kelly’s death may never be revealed in its entirety. But those who are trying hard to unveil it in the face of a seemingly impenetrable establishment brick wall should be commended. Unfortunately, the Chilcot inquiry is limited. It is empowered to point fingers at individuals and government departments for wrongdoing but that’s as far as it goes.

Ultimately, the only credible Iraq War inquiry would be one conducted by an international body, such as the United Nations or, alternatively, a joint UK-US inquiry held on neutral soil with a panel of legal experts that excluded non-American/British nationals. Better still would be a special tribunal in The Hague to hold accountable those responsible for a million-plus deaths. But don’t hold your breath!

Dr. Kelly was murdered for exposing the warmongers to the world

By Alex Newman | New American | 30 June 2010

    New revelations in the suspicious “suicide” death of whistle-blower Dr. David Kelly point even more strongly to the possibility of murder and a subsequent cover-up, according to an explosive investigation by the British newspaper Daily Mail.

    David Kelly served as a United Nations weapons-of-mass-destruction inspector in Iraq and as a scientist for the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense. He was widely considered the world’s foremost expert in chemical and biological weapons, even serving as a proof reader on the British government’s intelligence report about Iraqi WMDs. He disagreed with some of the claims and told his superiors, but was ignored.

    Seven years ago, a strange saga began when Kelly sparked a massive scandal. He leaked details of the government’s WMD lies — used to justify invading Iraq — to various journalists. His identity was eventually revealed as the source, and Parliament called him to testify for an investigation it was conducting into the explosive allegations. Then, before he could reveal even more devastating secrets, he turned up dead.

    The government, led by Prime Minister Tony Blair, immediately quashed the regular coroner’s inquest — a legal requirement in cases like this. Instead, it set up a much weaker “inquiry,” headed by Lord Hutton, into the untimely death.

    But as soon as the “investigation” concluded that Kelly’s demise was a “suicide” caused by a self-inflicted knife wound, the media began picking the story apart, pointing out inconsistencies and asking tough questions that still have not been answered satisfactorily — if they were addressed at all. The inquiry has been labeled a “whitewash” and a “cover-up” by numerous media outlets, investigators, doctors, and researchers.

    The two paramedics who were at the scene of Kelly’s body went public with their belief that a severed artery was not the cause of death, as the official report had claimed. “I just think it is incredibly unlikely that he died from the wrist wound we saw,” paramedic Vanessa Hunt told the British press. “There just wasn’t a lot of blood. When someone cuts an artery, whether accidentally or intentionally, the blood pumps everywhere.” The other paramedic offered a similar analysis.

    A team of concerned scientists and doctors also banded together to form the “Kelly Investigation Group.” They, too, believed there were serious deficiencies in the inquiry, saying the official conclusion was “highly improbable.”

    “Arteries in the wrist are of matchstick thickness and severing them does not lead to life-threatening blood loss,” three members of the group, all medical specialists, wrote in a letter to the Guardian newspaper calling for the inquest to be re-opened. “To have died from haemorrhage sic, Dr Kelly would have had to lose about five pints of blood — it is unlikely that he would have lost more than a pint.”

    The team also noted that the alleged amount of pain pills Kelly was said to have ingested would not have contributed to his death. Only a part of one tablet was actually found in his stomach.

    Adding more doubt to the official story, documents obtained through a Freedom of Information request showed there were no finger prints on the knife Kelly supposedly used to kill himself.

    “Someone who wanted to kill themselves wouldn’t go to the lengths of wiping the knife clean of fingerprints,” said British Minister of Parliament and current Transportation Secretary Norman Baker, who wrote a book about Kelly claiming he was killed because he might reveal more about the lies used in the run-up to the invasion of Iraq. “It is just very suspicious. It is one of the things that makes me think Dr. Kelly was murdered. The case should be re-opened.”

    A police spokesperson acknowledged the lack of fingerprints, but said it “does not change the official explanation.”

    Suspicions in the case grew even more after it was revealed earlier this year that documents in the official investigation had been secretly classified by the British government for an astonishing 70 years, an unprecedented move that fanned the flames of skepticism. All medical, scientific, and photographic records were totally sealed by Lord Hutton, including the post mortem.

    “This inexplicable secrecy can excite only suspicion that the authorities have something very bad indeed to hide,” noted Melanie Phillips in a report for the Daily Mail. “I myself have met people familiar with the shadowy world in which Dr Kelly moved who are certain he was murdered.” Another Daily Mail article reported that the legal basis for the gag order “has baffled experts accustomed to such matters.”

    Researchers have raised countless problems with the “official” story — too many to go over in detail in one article. But some of the new information collected by the Daily Mail in a more recent article entitled “Dr David Kelly: The damning new evidence that points to a cover-up by Tony Blair’s government” is worth recounting.

    “Our new revelations include the ambiguous nature of the wording on Dr Kelly’s death certificate; the existence of an anonymous letter which says his colleagues were warned to stay away from his funeral; and an extraordinary claim that the wallpaper at Dr Kelly’s home was stripped by police in the hours after he was reported missing – but before his body was found,” the paper reported, noting that its “rigorous and thorough investigation” had “turned up evidence which raises still more disturbing questions.”

    The death certificate, only recently obtained, used peculiar wording in the box meant for entering the place of death. Instead of naming it, the certificate said Kelly was “found dead” at Harrowdown Hill. Experts say the wording alone is enough to open another investigation, especially since there are numerous other irregularities involving the location of Kelly’s body (like heat-sensing helicopters that, based on the official story, should have found the body when flying over).

    The death certificate also states that a coroner’s inquest was performed. But it wasn’t. It also lacks a doctor’s or coroner’s signature, something all death certificates in the U.K. are required to have.

    “This death certificate is evidence of a failure properly to examine the cause of Dr Kelly’s death. It is evidence of a pre-judgment of the issue. In a coroner’s inquest the cause of death would not be registered until the whole inquiry had been completed. As we see here, the cause of death was registered before the Hutton Inquiry had finished,” said former coroner and law expert Dr. Michael Powers QC, who aims to have a thorough investigation conducted.

    “This is remarkable,” he told the paper. “To my mind it is evidence that the inquiry into Dr Kelly’s death was window-dressing because the conclusion had already been determined.”

    On top of the Hutton Inquiry’s many obvious shortcomings, a letter received last month by one of the doctors involved in the Kelly Investigation Group claims Kelly’s colleagues were warned not to attend his funeral. Kelly’s widow also said police came to the house and tore off wallpaper, possibly searching for listening devices, shortly after Kelly was reported missing, but prior to the discovery of his body. Authorities refuse to comment on the allegation.

    The doctors investigating the suspicious death said “concern about Dr Kelly’s death will continue to deepen until a full coroner’s inquest is heard,” the Daily Mail reported, adding that if such an inquest is performed, Tony Blair might well be expected to testify about why he “went to such lengths to avoid the normal, rigorous and respected course of this country’s law.”

    Concluding, the paper noted that Blair’s reputation, as well as the reputation of the British legal system, will continue to suffer until a proper investigation is conducted, which “is the only way the whole truth about the Kelly affair, however uncomfortable, will emerge.”

    Now, after all these years, there are hints that the truth may finally come out. The new British Attorney General announced earlier this month that he is considering re-opening the investigation. Meanwhile, the new Justice Secretary is reportedly contemplating releasing some of the records in the case that currently remain classified. Whether it will happen has been a matter of intense speculation in the British press, but if these crucial questions are ever to be resolved, a proper investigation is a must.

Its hard to say - it would of course be illegal for Mi5 to kill him on British soil..so its more likely they asked the CIA to do it as a favour
