In his blogpost titled, "David Kelly's Murder", Mr Murray makes this startling revelation:
Kelly's death was extremely convenient for Blair, Cheney and a myriad of other ultra ruthless people. It paved the way for war. We should not forget how very crucial the WMD issue was in convincing enough reluctant New Labour MPs to go along. Without the UK there would have been no coalition - most of the other Europeans would have quickly dropped out too. It is by no means clear that, despite Cheney's bluster, the Americans would have invaded Iraq alone.
So Kelly was the first man killed in the Iraq war.
To which I replied:
David Kelly committed suicide in July 2003. If I remember correctly the invasion of Iraq occurred in March 2003. How on Earth do you work out from that that David Kelly's death paved the way for war? Are you saying that no one died in that war from March 2003 until David Kelly's suicide in July 2003?
Instead of Dr Kelly's death being "convenient" it was almost certainly inconvenient and for this story to break now, a few days before Tony Blair takes the stand at the Chilcott inquiry it would surely be more likely to increase the level of scrutiny on Blair would it not?
It is interesting to see that those who usually consider the mainstream media to be slaves of a warmongering cabal are now saying that the only chinks in the armour of the impenetrable "propaganda matrix" are in fact...er...the BBC (i.e the state broadcaster) and the Daily
Update: The Guardian posthumously published an article that had been written by David Kelly in which his thoughts on Saddam Hussein and weapons of mass destruction are spelled out. It doesn't lend any credence to Craig Murray's "cui bono" claim.
