      KELLY'S CHILLING WORDS: 'I'LL BE FOUND DEAD IN THE WOODS'
      Ewen MacAskill, Nicholas Watt and Vikram Dodd, Guardian, 8/22/03

      The weapons specialist, Dr David Kelly, said six months ago that he
      would "probably be found dead in the woods" if the American and
      British invasion of Iraq went ahead, Lord Hutton's inquiry was told
      yesterday.

      His chilling prediction of his own death during a conversation with
      the British diplomat David Broucher in Geneva in February, throws new
      light on his state of mind about the row over Britain's role in the
      Iraq war.

      In a startling string of revelations yesterday, Lord Hutton's inquiry
      was told that Dr Kelly:

      · confirmed there had been a "robust" debate between Downing Street
      and the intelligence services about the September dossier on weapons
      of mass destruction

      · expressed scepticism about British claims that Iraq's weapons
      capability could be deployed quickly

      · had been in direct contact with senior Iraqi scientists and
      officials he knew, promising them the war could be avoided

      · feared he had "betrayed" these contacts and that the invasion had
      left him in a "morally ambiguous" position...
