Octopus Pt. 2: David Kelly was writing a book?

David Kelly, weapons inspector, died in 2003 just after being grilled for his comments about the state of WMDs in Iraq. He seemed to think they didn't have any. Odd, that.

At the time some people thought his apparent suicide an odd coincidence, and wondered if he wasn't "suicided." Now we find out that he was working on a book at the time -- one that might have had more than just Iraqi beans to spill.

He was intending to reveal that he warned Prime Minister Tony Blair there were no weapons of mass destruction anywhere in Iraq weeks before the ­British and American invasion.

He had several discussions with a publisher in Oxford and was seeking advice on how far he could go without breaking the law on secrets.

his death, his computers were seized and it is still not known if any
rough draft was discovered by investigators and, if so, what happened
to the material.

Dr Kelly
was also intending to lift the lid on a potentially bigger scandal, his
own secret dealings in germ warfare with the apartheid regime in South

US television
investigators have spent four years preparing a 90-minute documentary,
Anthrax War, suggesting there is a global black market in anthrax and
exposing the mystery "suicides" of five government germ warfare
scientists from around the world.

How peculiar. Author about to blow the lid off something really big suddenly winds up dead in a suspicious suicide.

Why do I get the idea I've heard this one before?
