Details of Iraq Whistleblower’s Alleged Suicide Sealed For 70 Years

David KellyStephen C. Webster reports on RAW Story:

By 2080, anyone with a direct interest in learning how Dr. David Kelly died, will themselves be dead.

That’s how an Oxford coroner reacted to a recent ruling ordering the details of the former United Nations weapons inspector’s death locked away for 70 years, according to a Mail Online report.

Kelly’s story, however, was gravely important in 2003, just before he was found dead in the woods behind his home in Oxfordshire, U.K. As the BBC revealed in the wake of his passing, he had been the key source behind a story claiming intelligence on Iraq’s alleged weapons of mass destruction was “sexed up.”

    Sheeezus….that's all we need. Another reason to believe in a conspiracy theory.

    Huh. Just like JFK's stuff is sealed for 70 years — until everyone connected with it is already dead.

    Another interesting factoid is the police officer's testimony to Parliament that there were no fingerprints on the knife that Kelly (who was a recent convert to the non-violent Bahai faith) supposedly used to slit his own wrists, and also the witnesses who found the body said that it had been moved to a different spot in the official police report from where they actually found him.

    What's even more interesting is just how MANY of the scientists involved with bioweapons research end up dead and/or “suicided”.

    There's Vladimir Pacetchnik (sp?) who worked on anthrax research for the Russians, who when he defected, was debriefed by….. David Kelly. Vladimir died of an interestingly timed “heart attack” right during the same period as the anthrax attacks, and had a research contract with the U.S. Navy.

    Another example from the past – perhaps one of the first victims of this stuff – would be Frank Olson, who in 1953 worked at the same lab in Ft. Detrick that Bruce Ivins (supposedly the anthrax killer) would later work at, and he was working on… anthrax. Frank Olson did a swan dive from the 13th floor of his hotel. (There are MKULTRA LSD experiments connected to that case as well.)

    Kelly also had connections to Bruce Ivins, and that there are connections between that kerfuffle and the old South African germ warfare program (which included anthrax) and the evil Apartheid gov'ts rightwing white supremacist networks around the world.

    Also there was the recent incident last November of Timothy Hampton's 17th floor swan dive at the U.N. facilities in Vienna. Hampton was a scientist involved in investigating nuclear activity (he worked for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization monitoring tremors in countries worldwide to uncover illegal nuclear tests, he was also a biochemist trained in Britain), and a second autopsy performed at the insistence of his family apparently showed that he was actually strangled first (there was bruising on the neck not detected in the first cursory investigation) then carried up from his sixth floor office to the 17th floor where he was dropped down the stairwell. Yet despite this, his death too was ruled a suicide. Interestingly, his wife works for the IAEA weapons inspectors as well.

    This is a relatively small and specialized community of scientists who die from “suicide”/murders/car crashes/heart attacks at a rate of like 40% higher than the statistical norm.

    There are just a lot of weird connection/coincidences worthy of further investigation. There may be nothing more than coincidences, and there might be something more to it. But if records are sealed, that kinda stops investigation in it's tracks, now doesn't it?

    What was that line?

    “You can call me a conspiracy theorist, if I can call you a coincidence theorist.”

    Slit wrists. no bloodshed? Deffinatly MI6 and the Blair-witch. And in my opinion, some of Blairs whisperers in BBC betrayed Kelly. Why would Kelly suffer from a case of immidiate insanity? After a converstion with a jounalist? Same way, when Karl Koch revealed the Operation Gladio in 1986, pouring petrol over himself, and lit a match, well hardly…never trust BBC.
