It has occurred to me suddenly in reviewing the Kelly case that it may be related to Valerie Plame.
The first thing i noticed was the date, Kelly was outed by the British government after meeting a BBC journalist and his subsequent story beginning June 2003 until his death around 17 July 2003.
Plame was outed 14th July 2003 supposedly as a result of a story published early July 2003 about two weeks before Kellys death.
Both these two worked covertly in WMD and both had taken an interest in Iraqi links to WMD.
The war against Iraq ad already started in March of 2003 and both governments were on a war footing with relation to anything pertaining to Iraq.
I don't know why I never connected these two people before, but the whole affair now seems decidedly more suspicious.
DailyKos apparently made this connection years agohttp://www.dailykos.com/story/2005/07/24/133106/-Plame-and-David-Kelly-attacked-in-the-same-week#
