Blustering and bullying will not work for Gorgeous George here. Senators have immunity from libel when on the floor/in committee. Also, they can charge him with perjury and/or contempt.
Why was all of the "lashing" coming from one side? Why didn't the senators get tough with him and make some news?
It's about time that somebody stood up to that sanctimonious thug, Norm Coleman, and said, "HAVE YOU NO DECENCY, SIR?"
What I find funny about this is its one politico calling another politico a liar, is that like a kettle calling a pot black.
Biased reporting. The committee did not just "say" it used different documents. It entered them into the record.
I would say that he lacks any brains at all. Who knows what kind of incriminating documents Saddam kept under the option of using them to blackmail Galloway, if he failed to toe the line just as Hussein pleased? Those documents would be among the tons and tons of papers preserved by Saddam for just such a purpose.
Coalitition researchers have been combing through this mountain of damning evidence for 2+ years now. Imagine what they have found, and will find?
What do you bet other far wiser European bureaucrats on-the-take secretly offer their testimony and other documents in exchange for immunity? Galloway is spitting into a hurricane. This should be fun to watch.
Interesting that this was the only sound bite used by NPR in their newscasts today. Coincidence? Me thinks he doth protest too much.
I am surprised the scumbag dems on the Committee didn't side with Galloway much more vigorously. Afterall, they've long taken orders from the same communist/neocommunist commisars.
US Legal complications for Galloway?
I would doubt that he is anymore innocent of being on the Iraqi payroll than Scott Ritter was. Whether Galloway actually directly received money from the sale of oil allocations may be questionable.
Both he and Ritter were long time mouthpieces for Saddam. It is well established that Ritter received money from Saddam through an Iraqi-American intermediary and the Miriam Fund was a conduit for cash to Galloway and his family.
On the issue of contempt of congress, the committee would have to find him in contempt and then persuade the AG to charge him. The US would then have to ask for the UK to send him on back.
I'd love to see Galloway in a US prison...
Might there also be some lingering resentment of anyone Celtic against anyone named "Norman"? Or of anyone with "Gal" in his name against anyone with "man" in his name? Twice?
"Galloway certainly has balls, if not brains."
Big brass ones, but what control does the U.S. Senate have over him?
He was expelled from Prime Minister Tony Blair's Labour Party after urging British soldiers not to fight in Iraq.
Just wanted to put those two closer together than the article deigned.
Carl Levin was pretty good, too, which doesn't bode well for Galloway. If the evidence was spinnable I've no doubt the dems would take a more sympathetic tack.
The evidence was not touched and it was a mighty entertaining spectacle calculated by the "outraged" Galloway.
Everything that communist said in the Senante was a pack of lies. When I saw his speech I became furious!
Didn't we bail out the Brits TWICE? Is this the thanks we get? The Senate should nail him for contempt for sprewing his many many lies.
I suggest he has neither.
I watched it for a while. He certainly opened a giant can of whupass on that committee.
The British are just pissed we kicked their ass...twice!
What a bunch of girliemen. We had to save them in WWII as well.
George Galloway is the new "Lord Haw-Haw" propaganda broadcaster. He makes me sick.
