- British police
- British intelligence agencies;
- the entire British government, all the way to the top; and
- rather sloppily, the British judicial system.
It is impossible to believe that all these entities conspired in such an obvious cover-up in order to protect some sleaseball Iraqi dissident, particularly as the attack was already over, Saddam was out, and the sleaseballs were no longer of use to the British government. No, the only possible suspect is the only possible beneficiary of the cover-up, the British government itself.
