David Kelly was an arms expert for the United Kingdom, who was found mysteriously dead near his Oxfordshire home during the Invasion of Iraq. Kelly was exposed as the source for a BBC story that alleged that the UK government had fabricated intelligence on Iraqi weapons of mass destruction ahead of the invasion. This challenged the very premise for the War in Iraq and thus Kelly served as a major credibility threat to the UK government and intelligence.
The government has not released a report that found Kelly had in fact commited suicide and that no foul play was involved, whether through British Intelligence or other covert operations. The claims by the government are refuted by many who saw Kelly’s death as a signal for dissidents to remain quiet as the country entered one of the most costliest wars since World War 2.
Thom Yorke, a UK artist and front-man for Radiohead, produced a song describing the death of David Kelly. The video is posted below- Enjoy
