Frankenstein worked for Sadaam Hussein
A FOI request on comments made on The Dodgy Dossier on weapons of mass destruction in Sadaam's Iraq by Defence Intelligence specialists, reveals that Blair and his Cabinet knew it was a pack of lies.
Greater men than Blair have been impeached for deliberately lying to Parliament.
One, dated September 16, states: "I note that the paper suggests that Saddam's biotech efforts have gone much further than we ever feared. Page 4 Bullet 4: '(Iraq) has assembled specialists to work on its nuclear programme' – Dr Frankenstein I presume? Sorry. It's getting late..."
Another email supports a proposed drafting amendment to the report, but adds wearily: "We have suggested moderating the same language in much the same way on drafts from the dim and distant past without success. Feel free to try again!"
