DID BUSH AND BLAIR ORDER SCIENTIST’S MURDER?

BUSH/BLAIR MURDER VICTIM?

Dr David Kelly was on a hitlist, says UN weapons expert as calls grow for full inquestBy Miles Goslett and Arthur Martin

A leading UN weapons inspector last night added his voice to the growing clamour for a full inquest into the death of Dr David Kelly.

Dr Richard Spertzel claimed Dr Kelly was on a ‘hitlist’ in the final years of his life.

The former head of the UN Biological Section, who worked closely with Dr Kelly in Iraq in the 1990s, has written to Attorney General Dominic Grieve about the ‘mysterious circumstances’ surrounding the death.

The weapons inspector’s body was found after he was unmasked as the source of a damaging BBC news report questioning the grounds for the Iraq war.

Officially, he took his own life.

Yesterday Dr Spertzel told the Mail that the British authorities were ‘intentionally ignoring’ the issue.

He believes that there is something ‘fishy’ and insisted that a coroner should examine the death as soon as possible.

His demands come 24 hours after nine of Britain’s leading medical experts wrote an open letter to minsters demanding a full inquest.

Dr Spertzel said: ‘I know that David, as well as myself and a couple of others, were on an Iraqi hitlist. In late 1997, we were told by the Russian embassy in Baghdad. I had no idea what it meant but apparently David and I were high on the priority list.’ 

He said he and Dr Kelly were told that they were ‘numbers three and four’ on the list during an inspection trip in Iraq.

‘When it first happened I felt right away that David just being associated with the work he’d been doing

‘The Iraqi intelligence service did not take kindly to such action so my first reaction [to Dr Kelly’s death] was “we’d better watch our backs”.’

No inquest has ever been held into DrKelly’s death. Instead, a public inquiry chaired by Lord Hutton was set up to investigate the circumstances surrounding it. 

The inquiry ruled that the 59-year-old committed suicide in woodland near his Oxfordshire home in July 2003 by cutting the ulnar artery in his wrist with a blunt pruning knife.

Dr Spertzel, who is based in Washington where he continues to write and lecture on biological weapons, said: ‘My concern about David Kelly’s death is exactly what the doctors are saying now – that is, it’s virtually impossible to commit suicide by slashing your wrist in that way.

‘It just doesn’t make sense. It seems to me that they [the British authorities] are intentionally ignoring all this. Something’s fishy.’

Yesterday some of the doctors who wrote to ministers demanded an end to the shroud of secrecy over the death.

They want the official post-mortem results to be made public and for witnesses to give evidence under oath.

Concern over the cause of death has been mounting after it emerged in January that all medical and scientific records, including the post-mortem report and photographs of the body, were secretly classified for 70 years in 2004.

Sir Barry Jackson, past president of the British Academy of Forensic Science and one of the doctors who wrote to ministers, said yesterday: ‘In my experience from 30 years as a practising surgeon I find it difficult to agree with the cause of death as listed on his death certificate.’

Another, Dr Elizabeth Driver, a solicitor and Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists, added: ‘As a pathologist I cannot understand how Dr Kelly could have died from blood loss of a severed ulnar artery. It makes no medical sense. Little is known about the medical facts because the post-mortem has been kept secret.

‘There are obvious questions which were not addressed in the inquiry.’

Doubts over the official version of his death have previously been raised by Mai Pederson, a U.S. Air Force linguist who served in Iraq with Dr Kelly’s weapons inspection team.

She said he had a painful elbow injury which meant his hand was too weak to cut a steak.

He would have to have been a ‘contortionist’ to have killed himself in the way the Hutton Inquiry claimed, she said.

She also said he had a disorder that made it difficult to swallow pills, undermining Lord Hutton’s claims that he took some himself.

Dr Kelly investigation ‘was inadequate’: Now NINE top doctors demand inquest

By Miles Goslett

Nine of the country’s leading doctors today dramatically question the verdict that Dr David Kelly killed himself by slitting his wrist.

The eminent medical experts say it is unlikely the weapons inspector could have bled to death in the way the authorities claim – raising fresh doubts that it was suicide.

In an open letter to ministers, they also urge the Government to conduct a full coroner’s inquest to re-examine key medical evidence surrounding the case.

The move heaps huge new pressure on the Coalition to reopen the investigation. The doctors are experts in the fields of forensic science, intensive care and law, and include Sir Barry Jackson, past president of the British Academy of Forensic Science.

Eight of the nine have never expressed their opinion on the Kelly affair publicly before. Their intervention shows the continuing deep disquiet among senior medics about the way Dr Kelly’s death was investigated by the Hutton Inquiry – dubbed a ‘whitewash’ by critics.

They join a growing chorus of experts who have made their concerns public.

Officially, Dr Kelly, 59, took his own life in woodland near his Oxfordshire home in July 2003 by cutting the ulnar artery in his wrist with a blunt pruning knife.

But a female colleague who served with him in Iraq, Mai Pederson, says a hand and arm injury had left him ‘too weak’ to cut his own wrist. Witnesses say there was little blood at the scene.

And experts have doubts that he lost sufficient blood to cause his death.

It also emerged after the Hutton Inquiry that no fingerprints were found on the knife Dr Kelly is alleged to have used, and that he was

It is backed by a second letter to Justice Secretary Kenneth Clarke, signed by Dr Michael Powers, QC. The letter questions the ‘adequacy of the investigation conducted by Lord Hutton’ and also calls on the Government to carry out an inquest.

The body of Dr Kelly was found shortly after he was exposed as the source of a BBC report questioning the grounds for war in Iraq. No coroner’s inquest has ever been held into his death. The only official verdict came from the Hutton Inquiry, a non-statutory public inquiry at which witnesses did not give evidence under oath.

Dr Powers told the Daily Mail: ‘The inquiry conducted by Lord Hutton into the cause of Dr Kelly’s death was inadequate and resulted in an implausible conclusion.

The opinions of the distinguished doctors in the letter to The Times are not given lightly. This reflects the widespread belief in the medical profession that his death was not due to haemorrhage.’

In January it emerged that Lord Hutton secretly classified all medical and scientific records relating to Dr Kelly – including the post-mortem examination report and photo of his body – for 70 years.

The likeliest way that a coroner’s inquest can go ahead is if Mr Clarke overturns the 70-year gagging order and allows another group of doctors – who have campaigned for access to the classified material as part of an ongoing legal action to force an inquest – to see it.

Mr Clarke is considering whether to grant them access. If he agrees, the doctors would be allowed to hand over this material to Attorney General Dominic Grieve. Under coroners’ law, Mr Grieve – who has expressed concern over the case – can apply to the High Court for an inquest if he believes there is considerable doubt in the public mind that Dr Kelly took his own life. 

Mr Clarke and Mr Grieve met last month to discuss the case. It is understood they talked about scientific and medical reports relating to Dr Kelly including one thought to focus on his state of mind before his death.

Last weekend the detective who helped find his body, Graham Coe, gave an interview in which he revealed he lied about aspects of the evidence he gave to the Hutton inquiry.

Mr Coe, 63, now retired from Thames Valley Police, said there was very little blood at the scene. He also confirmed the disputed existence of a ‘third man’ with him and his partner DC Colin Shields that day.

Critics who believe Dr Kelly was murdered have claimed the suited figure mentioned in the accounts of volunteer searchers could have been from the security services.

At the Hutton inquiry Mr Coe said he had been accompanied by only one other officer – DC Shields – but he now says there had also been a trainee police officer with him, whom he refused to name.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/

Why?

Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
