Dr. David Kelly: UK releases secret file

By jimstaro - Posted on 22 October 2010

Does this end the rising voices calling for another Inquiry, it shouldn't, it should heighten them and add in an Inquiry into the first Inquiry with what has recently been coming out, especially as that was under the Blair government!

UK releases secret file on weapons scientist death that confirms he took his own life

22 October 2010 - The British government Friday released a formerly secret autopsy report in an attempt to end speculation that the 2003 death of a government weapons scientist at the centre of a controversy over the Iraq War was not a suicide.

The lengthy report reaffirms that David Kelly slit his wrist after he was exposed as the source of a British Broadcasting Corp. report that accused then Prime Minister Tony Blair's office of "sexing up" prewar intelligence to justify the 2003 invasion.

Justice Secretary Ken Clarke said on Friday he was releasing the documents to end speculation over Kelly's death. Some government critics have suggested that Kelly was silenced to prevent him from speaking out.

Clarke said the release was "in the interests of maintaining public confidence" even though it was likely to cause distress for Kelly's family. A lawyer representing Kelly's family said there would be no response.

The BBC report was a major embarrassment for Blair, who had argued that Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein posed a substantial threat to Britain's national security because he possessed weapons of mass destruction — an assertion that later proved false. {read rest}

This definitely should not end the call for a new and real inquiry, but like the author of an article posted here yesterday or the day before said, unless it was a video, [demand] is far more fitting than "call" is. That person was/is right; instead of calling for justice, demand justice, truth, and so on. It was interesting to read or her words about this; inspirational. I have used the word "call" most of the time and without meaning less than "demand", but the latter has a little more punch to it, so it'll be kept in mind.

And there's much to be demanded. One demand needs to be a new and real inquiry into the death of Dr Kelly, and for all efforts against forming this inquiry to end. Refusing this inquiry is obstruction of justice.
