    schema:description ""In the most controversial drive to war in modern history, the country was told in 2003 that invading Iraq was the only way to disarm Saddam Hussein of his weapons of mass destruction. In Basra and Baghdad, British and American troops settled in to a lengthy occupation, but the Iraqi arsenal proved non-existent. Only one man had spoken out, off the record, to say the government had probably known there were no weapons all along. Now he was dead, and Tony Blair's political machine went into overdrive. The ministers and mandarins denounced Kelly as a 'middle-ranking civil servant', an unreliable eccentric whose suicide was entirely unconnected to the parliamentary investigation into whether he had anonymously briefed a BBC reporter about the dossier. But not everybody found this explanation easy to swallow. Those who questioned the official story and the subsequent findings of the Hutton Inquiry were labelled conspiracy theorists - cranks, obsessives, lunatics, fantasists. But look closer at the gaps and cracks in the government's account, and the hulk of a great and deliberate dishonesty looms impossibly large. This fascinating book examines the years, months and days leading up to the death of Dr Kelly, the UK's most experienced weapons inspector, and the sinister world this retiring academic inhabited - a world of hidden agendas, covert programmes and cynical politics. Dark Actors takes the people, events and cover-ups connected to Kelly's death and places them under the spotlight. Its conclusions are chilling"--Cover."@en ;
