  • The Iraq dossier uncovered

    by Sunny

    I should have plugged this last week. Chris Ames has launched a new website comprehensively uncovering many of the lies behind the government’s Iraq “dossier” a few years ago. He recently pointed out in the New Statesman:

    Since Andrew Gilligan first reported David Kelly’s allegation that government spin-doctors had sexed-up the dossier and inserted a false claim that Iraq could launch weapons of mass destruction in 45 minutes, the government’s defence has relied on another false claim. This is that the dossier was written by Scarlett and/or the JIC. In particular, the government has claimed that a draft Scarlett produced on 10 September 2002 was both the first full draft and the first to include the 45 minutes. I believe the Williams draft, produced a day earlier on 9 September, will prove all this to be untrue.

    Chris also wrote an article for comment is free explaining more. Feel free to browse the website - iraqdossier.com. Hope he keeps plugging away at it and not let the government get away with pulling wool over our eyes.

    Update: Sorry, no idea yet why PP keeps going down.
