Our lying Prime Minister

The following is from a Crisis newsletter (crisisnewsletter@pro-net.co.uk ) :


"In case you missed it, the result of the so-called Al Qaeda linked terrorist "ricin" trial exposed another Blair/MI6 fairytale. Contrary to the BBC News account, splashed sensationally at the time of the arrests, and repeated deceitfully at the end of the trial, the court found there was never any ricin and there was no conspiracy. Instead there was a single deranged would be terrorist whose recipe for ricin came from a US right wing anarchist internet site. There were also some people who may hate US/UK (plenty of those nowadays thanks to Blair and Bush) but were acquitted of criminal charges. In any case ricin is virtually unusable as a weapon of mass murder as MI6 knew, and BBC News should have known, all along.
When The Guardian revealed the true story they had a D notice slapped on them and the article was removed from their web site with no explanation. However experts for the defence have published their account, a fascinating insight into government and media lies, at this address:

"Adam Curtis, the BBC producer of The Power of Nightmares (debunking the Al Qaeda myth), commented on the ricin phantasy on receiving a BAFTA award only to have his speech censored by his own employer.
