One of the snippets of information that fascinated journalists in July 2003 was the mention of "many dark actors playing games" in an email sent by David Kelly to Judith Miller on 17th July 2003 here: E Mail from Dr Kelly 17 July 03.
Who were the dark actors?
We don't know.
One reason we don't know is that, so far as can be established from the Hutton Inquiry web site, the Hutton Inquiry didn't ask.
There is no witness statement from Judith Miller.
Judith Miller didn't appear as a witness at the Hutton Inquiry. Nor is there evidence that she was asked.
Wouldn't it have been interesting to hear her answer to a question like, "Do you have any information as to who the dark actors mentioned by Dr. Kelly might be?"?
If Judith Miller had something substantive to say in response to such a question wouldn't that have been front page news?
Nor is there evidence that Thames Valley Police thought to ask the question. Nor any evidence that Thames Valley Police interviewed Judith Miller.
Someone with a suspicious mind might almost imagine that Lord Hutton and Thames Valley Police wished the identity of the "dark actors" to remain in obscurity.
