The Guardian has a huge scoop on the Iraq dossier. It reveals the marginal note that was removed from the published version of John Williams draft related to Israel, specifically its pursuit (possession) of weapons of mass destruction and defiance of the UN.

The paper covers all the angles, including Freedom of Information and the taboo that around Israel's weapons. It also publishes the evidence of Neil Wigan, the Foreign Office witness to the Tribunal. Given that this evidence gives the whole game away, letting it into the public domain is careless, to say the least.
