Dead U.K. Weapons Adviser Was BBC Source

So, this guy who was the BBC's source of information on chemical weapons of mass distruction killed himself as he went for a walk one morning. From what i understand, he had spent a lot of time under investigation as the press and everyone else tried to find out if the British government exaggerated claims of the weapons in an attempt to get public support for a war in Iraq.

In any case, I doubt it was anything like an assassination, though the thought had crossed my mind. Of course, if two or three more weapons experts turn up toast, I figure I'll go consipiracy nut on you guys. Poor guy was probably just tired of being screwed with all the time. Still an interesting foot-note to the investigation as a whole.

In other news, Bush spouts the familiar rhetoric of war towards a host of blacklisted nations. His quote, "The Iraqi people are no longer captives in their own country,” in regards to these nations oppression of their populace makes me think that he hasn't finished taking third world countries down a peg or two. I doubt that he'd have time to muster support for a second war though, or finish it, but if he gets re-elected I'd bet you money that we end up attacking Iran. I read in the paper the other day that Bush was attempting to get the U.N. Security Council allow for an investigation to find Iran's weapons of mass distruction, and I don't doubt that we'd end up doing this in the same way, even if we don't have the same kind of hate towrds Iran that we did of Saddam.

Shit, I'm willing to bet that most people don't even know the difference. Like Toby Keith. What a prick.
