UPDATE - JULY 19, 2003:
The body, found 5 miles from Kelly's home, is confirmed to be David
Kelly. The speculation now asserts it is either suicide, heart
attack, or stroke.
Have you ever heard of someone walking out into the woods to have a
heart attack or stroke? It usually just sort of happens.
It is one of three things: 1) He walked out alone to go commit
suicide; 2) He walked out alone and a very coincidental accident,
crime, or health problem occurred; 3) Someone had said they wanted
to talk to him, suggested they could only talk privately if he met
them out in the woods near his home, and when he went out to talk
the person, he was killed.
Could be any of these. All we know for certain is that the major
news sources only care about Kobe right now. The possible biggest
story of our time, we expect, will be pushed out of the way quickly
by the ridiculous, corporate-owned mainstream press.
JULY 18, 2003 - When Oliver Stone’s
movie JFK came out, it was assailed. The movie asserted that lots
of the people who knew something about JFK’s murder were showing up
dead, and inferred that US intelligence agencies – or somebody
trying to cover up the truth behind the assassination – were
Now, we have the same situation in our lifetime. David Kelly,
British Ministry of Defense weapons advisor, who was forced to
testify before the British Parliament just Tuesday after admitting
he had talked with the BBC, seems to be dead.
Unlike the other news sources, we will give you the straight scoop
of what this means. While MSNBC, CBS, and others will have to tread
lightly on this subject for fear of putting 2 and 2 together and so
showing the public ugly truth, we have no such fears at The Moderate
do not know, as authorities don’t at this point, what the cause of
death was for Mr. Kelley.
the other hand, the are certain things that are very obvious.
1) He was at ground zero of the biggest controversy to hit England
(and America) in our lifetimes – a controversy that, if it turns out
the President and Prime Minister lied to bring us to war, would make
Watergate seem like a silly, irrelevant child’s game. We have a
soldier dying every day, and the reality may be we were tricked into
allowing these men and women to be sent to their deaths for the
2) The British Parliament called him just three days before his
death to testify because they believe he was the one who had leaked
information to the BBC asserting that Prime Minister Blair
purposefully mislead the British people about WMDs.
3) His job was to know and advise Blair about WMDs, so he would be
exactly in the position to know if Blair lied, exaggerated, or
4) Here is where it gets ugly. Already, there are allusions all
over the press that it very possibly is a suicide. This pressure
from this short stint of press notoriety, they are saying, drove
this man to walk out of his house, stroll for five minutes out into
the woods, and kill himself. Remember, not a single fact has been
gathered, not a single thing examined, and it is not even certain
the body is his, but already the stories are showing up in the press
worldwide inferring that suicide is most likely.

was very, very stressed and unhappy about what had happened and this
was really not the kind of world he wanted to live in,” (TV
Journalist Tom) Mangold said.”
can see the implication in this – subtle, but effective.
MSNBC continues: “Dr. Kelly is a scientist. He’s not used to the
media glare, he is not used to the intense spotlight he was put
under, and frankly, even hardened professionals can find that type
of pressure hard to cope with,” committee member Richard Ottoway, an
opposition Conservative politician told Sky television.”
Now you have two people asserting very possible suicide. For all
they know, there are fifty ice pick wounds in the man’s back – but
before they even wait for the details, they begin to imply suicide
from a few weeks of media pressure. They seem to be pretty certain
whatever wounds or cause of death will appear will allow the
possibility of suicide. They also seem overly eager to say a
mentally healthy man can suddenly go from happy to killing himself
due to just a short period of being stuck out in the press.
MSNBC continues: “In Britain, media reports were concentrating
Friday on disappeared weapons expert Kelly’s clear discomfort in the
spotlight. Kelly, 59, had told the parliamentary foreign affairs
committee he had met BBC reporter Gilligan, but denied telling him
that Blair’s communications chief, Alastair Campbell, had ordered
intelligence to be hyped.” link:
Don’t get us wrong – this is not an attack on MSNBC. All news
sources are reporting the same. Somebody is leaking a suicide
story, and it is getting play worldwide, before we even know if it
is Kelly who is dead, never mind the cause of death. That reeks.
The Moderate Independent is not some ridiculous, integrity-free rag
that will pretend we know something that we don’t. We do not, any
more than you do, know if this was murder, suicide, political
vendetta, a woman who killed him because of an affair, a chance
mugging, an accidental death – and we must repeat it is not
officially confirmed that the body is Kelly’s.
What we do promise, though, is that the facts and details of this
possibly too-coincidental-to-be coincidence death emerge, we will
cut through all the niceties, bias, and cowardice of the main
stream, Bush/Limbaugh/Murdoch owned-and-operated press and make sure
you get the straight facts – and most accurate assertions – from
news sources around the world, interpreted and presented in the
usual straight-talking, truth-loving, pull-no-punches M/I style.
may just be living through the biggest scandal in the history of two
of the most powerful nations ever to exist, with those who have the
ability to talk getting capped right before our very eyes.
Then again, maybe not.
