Did David Kelly really kill himself?

It was 2003 and Western governments were savagely lashing out at anyone questioning the pretexts for the rush to war with Iraq. In October, Robert Novak was used as the stalking horse by the Bush administration to punish Joseph Wilson for his public critique by outing his wife Valerie Plame as a CIA agent, endangering her and her entire network and ending her career. Earlier in the year, in the UK, the Blair government had maliciously outed weapons inspector David Kelly as the source for a BBC story alleging the case for war had been 'sexed up'.

Within days he was dead.

And very quickly the death was ruled a suicide. Very, very quickly. Now however the case for Dr Kelly committing suicide is collapsing like a house of cards.

How far were some forces willing to go to protect the march to war?
