ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the potential political damage done by the suicide of David Kelly, the British bioweapons expert. Already, the British public suspects that British Prime Minister Tony Blair's government manipulated intelligence to boost the case for war against Iraq. Kelly's death has heightened public suspicions, putting a poignant human face on the idea that the government fabricated its dossier on weapons of mass destruction.
