THE DAVID KELLY STORY: Frankly, I've read a lot more "tinfoil hat"-type insinuations on progressive sites than I would have expected. If we're above making unfounded Vincent Foster-type allegations, then we shouldn't do it. Period.

Blair may "have blood on his hands" for sticking with Bush on Iraq, but it's unlikely that any of it is David Kelly's. I respect the BBC (sadly, more than I respect Blair right now--especially if the report that he has capitulated to the Bush Admin over the British prisoners held at Gitmo is true), but this Guardian (definitely not Murdoch-owned) report indicates that it might have been the Beeb, not #10 Downing that pushed Kelly over the edge.
