BBC Panorama

Have been listening to a BBC radio discussion on the Panorama programme critical of the BBC handling of the Kelly story (its also critical of other players) - BBC castigates itself as new Kelly interview surfaces .

Its pretty impressive that the BBC can be so self critical.

Interestingly Kelly believed that Hussein had WMD and could use them within a week. He also believed only regime change would remove the WMD threat. I don't think we will be hearing much about that from the Bush haters.

Also Kelly said Iraq was immediate threat.

Now Bush actually said that Saddam was not an "immediate" threat but was not prepared to wait until he was. So Kelly, up until now the darling of the antiwar crowd, was more alarmist than Bush.
