Part two of two
THE MURDER OF DAVID KELLY
(In part one of this report
we examined evidence ignored by the national media,
both in the U.S. and U.K., that shows fairly conclusively
(at least to this writer) that Dr. David Kelly did
not commit suicide. * (For an expanded, detailed report
of more evidence see the URL in the footnote below.)
In this last part, we will look at Kelly's involvement
in and/or knowledge of the secrets of several governments
so explosive that once he was adjudged "unreliable" he
had to be eliminated.)
In 1984 Dr. Kelly was invited by the Ministry of Defense
(MoD) to take the position of chief microbiologist at its
secret facility at Porton Down. Kelly had been working
in the NERC Institute of Virology in Oxford. He brought
a number of scientists with him from there to Porton Down.
At the Hutton inquiry, Brian Jones
testified as to Kelly's involvement, with the highest
security clearance, in analyzing top-secret information
regarding biological weapons of the U.K. and other governments.
Jones was director of a department on the Defence Intelligence
Staff (DIS). That involvement, beginning in 1987, presumably
continued until his death and through his several other
jobs as weapons "inspector" in
Russia and (for UNSCOM) in Iraq.
It was before and during Kelly's tenure at Porton Down
that it became involved with South Africa's bioweapon program
named Project Coast. A cardiologist named Wouter Basson
who was the personal physician of South African Prime Minister
Botha headed the project.
After the apartheid government fell, there was a nearly
two-year trial of Basson who was charged with numerous
crimes including murder and misappropriation of project
funds. During the trial several astounding revelations
came out. (Basson was acquitted of all charges by a judge
who would not let him take the fall for an official government
Basson was said to have had entrée
not only to Porton Down but the U.S. Army facility at
Fort Detrick, Maryland (the U.S. counterpart of Porton
Down). The two main thrusts of Project Coast were developing
genetically altered diseases that would affect only groups
with similar DNA characteristics, e.g. blacks, and weapons
to be used in assassination of individuals. Two (as yet
unidentified) scientists working at Porton Down were
also paid consultants to Basson's projects.
The CIA in the U.S. contributed to Basson's efforts through
Dr. Larry Ford. Ford was set up as co-president of a laboratory
supposedly developing a feminine birth control device that
would also protect against AIDS. The company never had
a product or any sales.
According to an undercover FBI informant,
Ford did develop an "anti-black" product he delivered to an attaché of
the South African government in California. Ford was later
killed by a shotgun blast that was ruled a suicide. At
the time he was under suspicion of involvement in the attempted
assassination of his partner in the CIA front. Ford had
made several trips to South Africa in connection with Project
In 1989, Vladimir Pasechnik, head of the Soviet bioweapons
program at its Biopreparat facility, defected to the U.K.
His revelations of Soviet activity created a diplomatic
uproar over violations of the 1972 treaty banning such
activity that had been pushed and signed by the U.K., U.S.
Dr. Kelly and Christopher Davis of the U.K and U.S. microbiology
experts debriefed Pasechnik. Davis, who comes out of MoD
Intelligence, was at the time an employee of Veridian Corp.,
which has an interesting history.
According to mind control researcher
David Hoffman, in 1946 Cornell Aeronautical Laboratory
was founded including the "Fund for the Study of Human Ecology." The "fund" was
a CIA financing conduit for mind control experiments by émigré Nazi
scientists and others under the direction of CIA doctors
Sidney Gotttlieb, Ewen Cameron and Louis Jolyn West. Gottlieb,
of course was the director of the CIA's infamous MK-ULTRA
mind control program.
Cornell was later absorbed into Calspan Advanced Technology
Center in Buffalo , NY . The company continued experiments
in mind control and artificial intelligence. In 1997 Calspan
was in turn absorbed by Veridian Corp. Veridian (Calspan)
is deeply involved in artificial intelligence. In August
of this year giant defense contractor General Dynamics
Here is a strange "coincidence." After
Timothy McVeigh left the army, he joined the Army National
Guard in Buffalo . He landed a job with Burns International
Security and was assigned to guard the premises of (you
guessed it) Calspan. McVeigh had told friends the army
had implanted a microchip in him during the Gulf war.
(We now know that a number of soldiers were implanted
with microchips explained as an experiment to keep track
of their locations during battle.) The CIA doctors at
Calspan were experimenting with merging brain cells with
Pasechnik was put to work at Porton
Down where he remained until set up with his own company.
Three weeks after the mailed anthrax attacks in the U.S.
, He died, "apparently" of
a stroke. Strangely, the death was announced by Christopher
Davis. His death began a string of mysterious deaths and
obvious murders of world-class microbiologists, which continues
to this day. Dr. Kelly's death is one of those but not
One of the most disturbing deaths is that of Harvard scientist
Don C. Wiley. Wiley was one of America's preeminent researchers
into infectious diseases and HIV in particular. After years
of meticulous research, Wiley had just scored a breakthrough
by identifying the properties of the HIV virus that make
it infectious and how it avoids destruction by the antigens
in the human immune system.
In theory, the discovery has application to other viruses
that cause diseases. Viruses, as opposed to bacteria, seem
to be immune to treatment by antibiotics.
The dark side of the discovery,
as Wiley himself discussed, is that the same information
could be used to change relatively benign viruses into
killers. **(See footnote on this author's three-part
series on "Anthrax, GOCO's and Designer Germs.")
In 1991, a team of U.S. and U.K
scientists, including Kelly and Davis, made a trip to
the USSR to inspect Biopreparat facilities at four locations.
Their host was deputy chief of the program, Kanatjan
Alibekov, who would later "defect" to
the U.S. and change his name to Ken Alibek. Kelly made
several inspection trips to Russia.
Dr. Kelly was described by his contemporaries
as an iron-willed individual who did not hesitate to
challenge Russian and Iraqi authorities and scientists.
However, he may have been a bit naïve concerning
three individuals with whom he had extensive communications,
all three women.
Judith Miller of the New York Times (NYT) exchanged numerous
e-mails with Kelly. The Pulitzer Prize winner is a long-time
member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) and through
her articles in the paper the most prominent of those warning
of Iraq's weapons of mass destruction (WMD).
The second "confidant" of Kelly's
was Olivia Bosch, a senior research fellow at the Royal
Institute of International Affairs (RIIA). The RIIA,
also known as Chatham House, is the U.K counterpart of
the CFR. Both organizations were set up by the financial
elite to work for a one-world government. Both wield
inordinate influence on the governments in their respective
countries. Kelly had recently joined the RIIA.
The third woman is a real-life Mata Hari. Mai Pederson
met Kelly in Iraq where her cover was as a translator.
She is a U.S. Army intelligence agent. Mai was instrumental
in Kelly's conversion to the Baha'i faith.
The first inspection trip was dramatized
in a Frontline production in 1998 entitled "Plague War" shown on PBS in
the U.S. and BBC in the U.K. Its main theme was that only
Russia had violated the 1972 treaty but the U.S. and U.K.
had abated their programs. Co-author of the script for
the program was Tom Mangold, a sometime author and until
very recently a BBC employee (propagandist?). Mangold was
one of the earliest writers to proclaim Kelly's death as
a suicide and has written articles "explaining" why Kelly
killed himself. He bills himself as a "best friend" of
Kelly but had to admit to the Hutton inquiry that his contacts
with Kelly had been relatively few and mostly by e-mail.
When Alibek defected to the U.S.
in 1992 he underwent extensive debriefing by, among others,
Davis and William Patrick ("father" of the U.S. bioweapons
program and a CIA consultant). He was then rewarded with
a job at BMI and became a CIA consultant. He is currently
president of a subsidiary of Hadron, the defense contractor
that peddled the PROMIS software to various governments
(with a backdoor in the software) that resulted in an
intelligence bonanza for the U.S.
According to author Gordon Thomas, Kelly maintained close
communications with Alibek, Patrick and other scientists
in the U.S. Thomas reports that Kelly had contacts only
weeks before two of the scientists died violent deaths.
One was Dr. Don Wiley.
In the months before his death,
Dr. Kelly became embroiled in a shouting match between
the British government and BBC. Andrew Gilligan, a reporter
for BBC claimed that Kelly had given him and other reporters
information that proved the government had exaggerated
the Iraqi danger in its "dossier" justifying
the war against Iraq and that Kelly had not been completely
honest in telling his MoD superiors what he had disclosed
to them. Writer Tom Mangold (it's not clear when he left
the employ of BBC) used this to reason that Kelly's loss
of integrity at being exposed as a "liar" was what led
him to suicide.
Mangold was not the only one to
push the suicide angle. After Kelly's death, Foreign
Office diplomat David Broucher made headlines around
the world when he claimed Kelly had said if Iraq was
attacked he might be "found dead in the
woods." Broucher testified the remark was made at the end
of a meeting he had with Kelly in February of this year
in Geneva where they discussed the WMD "dossier." He said
he didn't think much of it at the time but in retrospect
Kelly may have been considering suicide then.
When Kelly's daughter Rachel testified
at the inquiry, she proved through her father's diaries
that the only time he had been in Geneva, and the only
time he ever met Broucher, was a year earlier in February
of 2002. There was not even a draft of the "dossier" in
existence at that time suggesting that Broucher's story
Actually, the opposite of the Mangold thesis appears to
be the truth. Kelly was treated badly by MoD over the last
three years of his life. He had not had a salary increase
in three years as he approached retirement where his pension
would be a function of salary. At one time he was told
there would be reorganization within the intelligence operation
and he would get a sizeable increase in salary. That didn't
happen. Kelly had written several letters about his position
and, according to his widow, was quite upset and frustrated
about it (not despondent and suicidal).
Kelly had voluntarily disclosed to MoD his contacts with
the media. To his dying day, he maintained that he had
not provided all the information Gilligan attributed to
him. Nevertheless, Kelly was hauled before the Joint Intelligence
Committee for a grilling.
The final affront came in a mandated
one-on-one session with MoD Personnel Director Richard
Hatfield. MoD, with the approval of Tony Blair, had devised
an orchestrated charade to "out" Kelly as the source of the "leak.
Hatfield, head of the department that had been jerking
Kelly around for three years, was supposed to get Kelly's
acquiescence in the plan. Somehow, he never got around
to the subject.
Subsequently, at an MoD press conference, through a series
of disclosures to the press, the MoD confirmed Kelly as
the leak (as previously planned) when a reporter asked
if Kelly was the one.
Understandably, this treatment would
have made Kelly a resentful employee. In intelligence
circles, resentful employees are considered "unstable" and
security risks. Kelly had for years maintained his silence
about his extensive knowledge of the bio-warfare weapons
of at least four countries. Had it become imperative
that the silence be made permanent?
