Dr Kelly exposed the scandal surrounding the Blair government’s ‘sexed up dodgy dossier’ which Blair referenced when he lied to the British House of Commons with his claims that:
‘Saddam Hussein has Weapons of mass destruction capable of being launched within 45 minutes.’
Weapons expert & 59-year-old scientist Kelly confided to a BBC journalist, 2 years into the second Iraq War. He told Andrew Gilligan he was “concerned about the (WMD) claims” in an off the record conversation in 2003.
Thames Valley Police released a statement saying this had been done “at the request of Dr Kelly’s family.”
