Tony Blair's director of communications and strategy quits

Alastair Campbell, director of communications and strategy for UK's Prime Minister Tony Blair, has resigned.

Mr. Campbell, known as the "spin doctor" of the British government, has become, according to The Guardian, "the centre of criticism about the government's preoccupation with spin and media presentation for at least the past three years." Recently, he was involved in a bitter disagreement with the BBC over a BBC report stating that the British government made false claims about Iraqi's capabilities to deploy weapons of mass destruction in order to make the case for war.
