Mr Galloway Goes To Washington « Previous | |Next »
May 18, 2005

It's good to see a feisty, lefty British MP serve up some political stick to the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs subcommittee and to the Republican administration. Galloway had some fighting words for the Republicans:

I gave my heart and soul to stop you committing the disaster that you did commit in invading Iraq. And I told the world that the case for invading was a pack of lies..... Senator, in everything I said about Iraq I turned out to be right and you turned out to be wrong, and 100,000 have paid with their lives — 1,600 of them American soldiers, sent to their death on a pack of lies.

The permanent Senate subcommittee on investigations accused Galloway of receiving 20 million barrels of "oil allocations" from Saddam. It suggested that he might have used his anti-sanctions campaign, the Mariam Appeal, to "conceal payments".

Galloway returned the charge with interest. The BBC has some footage
