A crisis for Blair — or for the BBC?
: The Guardian headline paints the suicide of UN weapons inspector David Kelly as a crisis for Tony Blair’s government.
Looks more like a crisis for the BBC to me.
Was Kelly the source for Andrew Gilligan’s BBC’s “sexing up” story?
Did Kelly lie?
Did the BBC lie?
For that matter, what dirt exists surrounding not only the BBC but also the U.N.?
Conspiracy theorists were all ready to point to Blair on this — until it clearly turned out to be suicide.
So I don’t see how Kelly’s death points to Blair.
It points to the BBC.
What was so awful in this that would make the man commit suicide except that he would be revealed as a player in this drama — a player in the BBC’s web?
