Early draft of Iraq Dossier to be made public 1


From BBC Online

An early draft of the government’s infamous dossier on Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction must be made public, the Information Tribunal says.

The document, by Foreign Office press chief John Williams, was an unpublished draft of the dossier which was unveiled by Tony Blair on 24 September 2002. The Foreign Office had appealed against the Information Commissioner’s order that it should release the draft. It is not yet clear whether the Foreign Office will appeal to the High Court.

Weapons expert Dr David Kelly was found dead shortly after being named as the source of a BBC report suggesting the government’s dossier on Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction was “sexed up”…
