Carne Ross
Born 1966
Known for Independent Diplomat

In 1989, Carne Ross joined the UK Foreign Office and worked at the UK embassy in Bonn, Germany before moving to the UK mission to the UN where he worked from December 1997 to June 2002 as the UK delegation's expert on the Middle East. In the Butler Review, he testified that at no time during his work on Iraq (1998-2002) did the UK or US assess that Iraq's WMD posed a threat, directly contradicting the official British justification for the illegal invasion of Iraq. Sick of the hypocrisy, he resigned his job and set up Independent Diplomat, a non-profit, diplomatic advisory group for those marginalised by the existing diplomatic processes.
