    •  David Kelly (none)
      The death of British weapons expert David Kelly was also reported as a suicide.  As you may recall Kelly well knew that the pretext for invading Iraq was bogus.  He was also in a possition to cause great embarrassment for Blair & Bush and possibly foil their nefarious schemes.

      At the time of Kelly's "suicide" I recall hearing an interview in which one of  Kelly's colleagues proactively declared that he was happily married, loved his grandchildren and his life and that if his dead body was later found by a stream with his wrists slit something was probably amiss.

        The two paramedics who were the first medically trained people officially to arrive at the scene where David Kelly's body was said to have been found are back in the news (see here, here, and here or here). They confirm the two main anomalies in the case - discussed by me here and here - that there wasn't enough blood present to be consistent with a suicide by a slit wrist, a type of suicide they had seen before, and that the body, although supposedly not disturbed from the time it was discovered, had been moved. There's more. One of the paramedics, Vanessa Hunt, said (or here; my emphasis):
