ABSTRACT
This article presents information on issues related to the suicide of Dr. David Kelly, a British defense analyst. It is informed that the British government headed by Prime Minster Tony Blair released a dossier last September which argued that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction already and was vigorously seeking to obtain more. On May 29 of this year, British Broadcasting Corp. correspondent Andrew Gilligan reported that a British intelligence official involved in the preparation of the dossier was accusing Prime Minister Blair's chief communications aide, Alistair Campbell, of "sexing up" the dossier. Campbell promptly denounced the report as a lie-and launched an internal investigation of the charge which led to suspicion on Dr. Kelly.
