Even if he did commit perjury (which is almost a certainty)


the fact that he's a duly elected leader of the government of an ally means realistically that we could never lay a finger on the SOB.

Which Government is he the elected leader of?

The best that we could hope for would be an international prosecution, but that will never happen. In a more sane world, he would be prosecuted within his own country, but that's not going to happen either.

Americans are not subject to any international court so how could america prosecute anyone? And prosecuted for what?

And I don't like Galloway, and didn't like him years before you had even heard the name, but is no evidence, insinuation from war criminals or false evidence now enough to indict?

I predict an old investigation and Galloway's past will grow centipede's legs. In other words the crap coming Galloway's [and the UN's] way is going to 'snowball,' as we say. But fear not, Saddam has to be tried first. Here, a blast from the past:

... John Sweeney, a journalist working for BBC Five Live, unearthed the fact that an Arab from whom Mr Galloway received thousands of pounds in cash for expenses in the 1990s was the same man who was named in an American court as the purchaser of a satellite telephone used by al-Qa'eda in Afghanistan.
Five years ago, Mr Galloway was investigated by the Commons Standards and Privileges Committee over his financial relationship with Saad Al Fagih, a London based dissident Saudi politician. During the inquiry Mr Galloway identified more than £5,000-worth of items on his credit card bill that had been paid by Mr Fagih.
He said that all were out-of-pocket expenses. He also said that he had been given £1,800 to hand over to foreign nationals living in political exile in Britain, but refused to say who they were.

Galloway is just one terrorist collaborator among many.
