Why was all of the "lashing" coming from one side? Why didn't the senators get tough with him and make some news?
I admit I found this whole episode strange. What is the point (other than fair play) of allowing him to come over here, make a telegenically crackpot opening statement and then face a few relatively inconsequential questions from senators before being dismissed?
If I'm reading it right, Coleman is threatening him with perjury, if he lied. I'd say that's getting tough.
Here's a link to the part of the hearing where Galloway testified. It begins with Coleman laying out the case.
Believe me news was made and the reporters know it.
Man, does that guy ever hate America or what? He was elected on an angry anti-American platform.
