Fickle finger of blame

Fickle finger of blame
: I’m glad I’m no longer the only one saying this: There was nothing wrong with the British government releasing the name of David Kelly. The BBC had an obligation not to reveal its source but to the government, it’s fair game. Yet after the guy offed himself, gushy brains tried to make this the government’s fault. It’s not their fault for releasing the name. It’s not their fault that he killed himself. In the Scotsman:

PETER Hain raised fresh questions yesterday about the extent of the government

  • Jackie D

    Not to mention the fact that the guy breached his contract by talking to journalists. Blair’s government (or the Blair administration, in USese) didn’t sack him or prosecute him, which other governments (administrations) would have done. I hate to say it, but the Tower of London wasn’t built for decoration.
    And, as with any suicide, the blame falls squarely on the shoulders of the perpetrator. I feel desperately sorry for Dr Kelly’s family, but I don’t think they shall find real peace as long as they seek to blame anyone but Dr Kelly for his death. At this time, I can’t imagine how hard it is for them to gain that perspective — and the cries of our media do not help them one bit.
