British diplomat resigns over Iraq war

From New Zealand Herald

A high-flying diplomat who helped frame the government arguments that laid the groundwork for the Iraq war has resigned because Downing Street 'did not tell the whole truth' about the nature of the Iraqi threat.

It emerged over the weekend that Carne Ross, a former first secretary to Britain's UN mission between 1998 and mid-2002 in charge of Iraq issues, had resigned a month ago just as he was about to take up a senior post in London."
