Und das ist, was z. B. der ARD-Videotext daraus gemacht hat:

"BBC-Interview: Waffenexperte Kelly widersprach Äußerungen Blairs

[...] widersprach Kelly darin der Behauptung von Premierminister Blair, wonach der Irak in der Lage gewesen sei, binnen 45 Minuten Massenvernichtungswaffen einzusetzen. [...]"

Kein einziges Wort zu seinen Aussagen bezüglich der Einschätzung, Irak verfüge über WMD und diese seien eine Gefahr, die nicht toleriert werden könne, obwohl diese Aussagen doch die eigentliche Neuigkeit sind. So kann man also durch die beliebte 'schmierenjournalistische Methode des Lügens durch Weglassen' (Zitat meines früheren Physik-Lehrers) eine Geschichte um 180 Grad wenden, ohne daß es Otto Normalleser merkt...

Es wird immer spannender: Nun nimmt die BBC sich selbst in die Zange:

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,1-971716,00.html

Panorama, BBC television's flagship investigative news programme, will tonight accuse Greg Dyke, the corporation's Director General, of "betting the farm" on Andrew Gilligan's story in the Kelly affair.

The documentary recreates events leading up to the Hutton inquiry into David Kelly's death after he was identified as the source of Mr Gilligan's story that Downing Street had "sexed up" its dossier on Iraqi weapons.

Mr Dyke, Panorama reports, did not check Mr Gilligan's story before deciding to stand by the BBC Radio 4 Today programme reporter's account, despite Mr Gilligan's editor privately criticising his "flawed reporting" and "use of loose language".
[...]

It's interesting to watch the spin. On CNN (International) this morning I watched in dismay as they used that very same BBC report to say Kelly proved the threat was not "imminent" as he did not state directly that the weapons could be deployed in 45 minutes. Perhaps CNN also want to say that the Britisch government "sexed up" the report.
