The Death of Dr David Kelly: Murkier and Murkier By William Bowles

24 July 2003 — williambowles.info

Did Dr Kelly commit suicide because he could no longer tolerate the fact that the government he worked for had lied in order to justify going to war? Or was he murdered because he was about to expose the lies?

The Death of Dr David Kelly: Opening a can of worms By William Bowles

21 July 2003 — williambowles.info

Who was Dr David Kelly?
Head of the infamous Porton Down, Britain’s own WMD factory from 1984 to 1992, and who in 1989 was approached by MI6 to help debrief a Soviet defector from the Soviet Union’s CBW programme, it seems inconceivable that a man with this kind of background and over such a long period of time, wasn’t privy to the most confidential government information, which gives the lie to the claim by the government that he was approached some time in 2002 to supply information to the September document simply because he was the most knowledgeable person in the field, unless he was utterly trustworthy on a political level. Moreover, there was a six month delay between the announcement of publishing the document and the date of its actual publication, a delay which hasn’t been explained.

Mind your language! By William Bowles

20 July 2003 — williambowles.info

Acres of newsprint have been expended these past couple of days on the hapless Kelly, as well as endless ‘analysis’ of Campbell, Gilligan, Hoon, Blair, Straw, the MoD, of which the Independent’s coverage is, I suppose, pretty typical.

Heil Caesar By William Bowles

“There is no more dangerous theory in international politics today than that we need to balance the power of America with other competitor powers, different poles around which nations gather.” — Tony Blair

Blair into Blah doesn’t go: anatomy of a con By William Bowles

16 July 2003 — williambowles.info

Well will Cheney resign? Who cares. Compare the situation in the US with that in the UK, where exactly the same (faked) information has been doing the rounds for the past couple of years, yet the Blair talk is increasingly blah talk and defiant blah at that. But Tony Blah can protest til the cows come home, it won’t change a thing.

A conspiracy of silence? By William Bowles

14 July 2003 — williambowles.info

I pointed out in ‘9/11: Connecting the dots’, the cynical manipulations of our political leaders regarding events and their causes, when subjected to analysis, reveal the underlying truths. But as important, is the complicity of the mass media in covering up the reality of events, especially in the light of the latest ‘revelations’ that expose the fraudulent nature of the reasons for the invasion of Iraq and its subsequent re-colonisation.

Blairspeak By William Bowles

6 July 2003 — williambowles.info

Predictably, in response to continued challenges to the rationale behind the invasion of Iraq, Blair said the following:

‘There couldn’t be a more serious charge, that I ordered our troops into conflict on the basis of intelligence evidence that I falsified.’

Go for the Jugular! By William Bowles

5 June 2003 — williambowles.info

Except of course, they won’t (the media that is). We’ll be lucky if they name and shame a pinky. On both sides of the Atlantic, the frantic search for scapegoats continues apace, one of the latest being Ahmed Chalabi of the INC (favourite of the Wolfie clan) on whose ‘intelligence’ both the Pentagon and the New York Times have relied on so much,

Unglued, unstuck, pear-shaped, wobbly…and sick By William Bowles

2 June 2003 — williambowles.info

Call it what you like, the events of the past week are a genuine watershed in the USUK campaign to sell the world ‘democracy’ out of the barrel of a gun. And even though the mass media still can’t bring itself to utter the words, ‘what are the real reasons?’ the desire to pursue the ‘story’ is so compelling that they just can’t let go of it. And the more Blair’s government rolls out one mouth after the other, to utter the words, ‘just you wait, have patience’, ‘we’ve got the evidence’, ‘you’ll see, we didn’t actually say that’, ‘read what we really said’, the more the media and critically, the public, look on in disbelief and increasingly, disgust.

There’s News, News and then there’s damn lies! By William Bowles

29 May 2003 — williambowles.info

Am I angry or what?
The front pages of many of the newspapers in the UK today carried stories about Blair’s lies over the reasons for invading Iraq. The Independent carried the headline,

‘The case for war is blown apart’ (29/05/03)

The coup de grace By William Bowles

10 May 2003 — williambowles.info

When in Baghdad?
Whatever pronouncements USUK have made over the past months, all are exposed for what they are, utter shams. Shams moreover, that they have been forced to make under public pressure, though it’s of little comfort and makes little difference.
