- (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 Kellyâs involvement
in and/or knowledge of the secrets of several governments so explosive
that once he was adjudged ãunreliableä 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 Kellyâs 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 ãinspectorä in Russia
and (for UNSCOM) in Iraq.
It was before and during Kellyâs tenure at Porton Down that it became
involved with South Africaâs 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 program.)
Basson was said to have had entre 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 Bassonâs projects.
The CIA in the U.S. contributed to Bassonâs 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 ãanti-blackä
product he delivered to an attach 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 Coast.
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. and USSR.
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 ãFund for the Study of Human
Ecology.ä The ãfundä was a CIA financing conduit for mind
control experiments by migr 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 CIAâs infamous MK-ULTRA mind control
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 acquired Veridian-Calspan.
Here is a strange ãcoincidence.ä 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 microchips.
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, ãapparentlyä 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. Kellyâs death is one of those but not the latest.
- One of the most disturbing deaths is that of Harvard
scientist Don C. Wiley. Wiley was one of Americaâs 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 authorâs three-part
series on ãAnthrax, GOCOâs and Designer Germs.ä)
- 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 ãdefectä 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 nave 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 Iraqâs weapons of mass
- The second ãconfidantä of Kellyâs 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 Kellyâs conversion to
the Bahaâi faith.
- The first inspection trip was dramatized in a Frontline
production in 1998 entitled ãPlague Warä 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 Kellyâs death as a suicide and has written articles
ãexplainingä why Kelly killed himself. He bills himself as
a ãbest friendä 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 (ãfatherä
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 ãdossierä 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 (itâs not clear when he left
the employ of BBC) used this to reason that Kellyâs loss of integrity
at being exposed as a ãliarä was what led him to suicide.
- Mangold was not the only one to push the suicide angle.
After Kellyâs death, Foreign Office diplomat David Broucher made
headlines around the world when he claimed Kelly had said if Iraq was attacked
he might be ãfound dead in the woods.ä 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 ãdossier.ä
He said he didnât think much of it at the time but in retrospect
Kelly may have been considering suicide then.
- When Kellyâs daughter Rachel testified at the inquiry,
she proved through her fatherâs 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 ãdossierä
in existence at that time suggesting that Broucherâs story was fiction.
- 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 didnât happen.
Kelly had written several letters about his position and, according to
his widow, was quite upset and frustrated about it (not despondent and
- 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 ãoutä Kelly
as the source of the ãleak. Hatfield, head of the department that
had been jerking Kelly around for three years, was supposed to get Kellyâs
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 ãunstableä 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?
