Posted on 04/21/2003 7:15:24 PM PDT by Pokey78
THE world has produced some evil, twisted men throughout history. Saddam Hussein is one of them.
Treacherous Labour MP George Galloway is another.
The so-called Honourable Member for Glasgow Kelvin emerged last night as the paid mouthpiece for one of the most despicable regimes of torture and mass murder in modern times.
Papers found in the Iraqi capital but never expected to see the light of day prove Galloway was an employee of Saddams sadistic state machine.
In return for a gigantic £375,000-a-year, stolen from the impoverished Iraqi people, this traitor toured the worlds media proclaiming the Butcher of Baghdad a kind and decent human being.

As an honoured guest, he visited Saddam last year in his bomb-proof shelter far below the surface of the Iraqi desert.
Along with offers of Quality Street chocolates, laid on to prove his love of all things British, Galloway swallowed Saddams claim to be the equal of wartime hero Winston Churchill.
Yet when British troops went into battle to remove this despot from power, Galloway despicably urged the Arab world to rise up and kill them.
There have long been questions over the way a nonentity backbencher like Galloway could afford his lavish lifestyle of fast cars and fast women.
His constant travel, always first class, could never be funded by an MPs pay or from proceeds of his litigious pursuit of so-called defamation claims.

Galloway is a silver-tongued bully who has always been surrounded by a cloud of suspicion over his shifty activities, his manipulation of other peoples cash and his readiness to punch anyone he could not sue.
He left a slippery trail of scandal wherever he went, from the finances of the once mighty charity War on Want to the funding of his local constituency Labour Party.
Once, while quizzed too closely for comfort on his dodgy dealings, he amazed journalists by admitting extra-marital carnal relations to put them off the money trail.
A congenital liar, his favourite defence trick was total denial. If that failed, he would claim he had been misquoted.
So when he was overheard publicly praising Saddam Husseins leadership in standing up to the West, he claimed he was talking about the Iraqi people.
A vicious anti-Israeli ranter, he boasted that he sometimes dreamed he was part of an army wading ashore waving a Kalashnikov and driving the Jewish nation into the sea.
When this remark became known, he claimed he had been quoted out of context.
But nothing could distort the clear message he delivered in his interview last year with Saddam Hussein for a national Sunday newspaper.
The stomach-churning article made no reference to the callous acts of dismemberment and routine execution carried out under Saddams personal orders.
At no point did Galloway ask the tyrant about the torture chambers in the dungeons of Saddams palaces.
Or the systematic slaughter, rape and pillaging by his two psychotic sons, Uday and Qusay.
Instead, he remarked about the shy, gentle way Saddam greeted him, eyes downcast in his desert bunker.
There, in a corner of the room, glancing shyly downwards briefly as I strode towards him, was the most demonised man on the planet, he wrote.
He has a gentle handshake and is surprisingly diffident.
Galloway remarks on the way nervous servants were sweating despite the air-conditioning.
But he fails to point out they would have been in perpetual fear for their lives.
Tony Blair will be delighted that there is now hard evidence that Galloway was complicit with Saddams regime.
Asked about the troublemakers call for Arabs to rise up against British troops, the PM told The Sun last week: His comments were wrong and disgraceful.
The Prime Minister insisted he would not be party to any move which made Galloway a martyr.
But he made it clear he expected the Labour Partys national executive committee to take action to expel him.
With the evidence now available, surely it must be time to call in the police.
Let's see now, who would be so loathesome?
Scott Ritter? Tom Daschle? Jim McDermott? David Bonior? Hillary Clinton? The Democrat National Committee?
Inquiring minds want to know.
Labour (UK spelling)= Labor Union Socialist. Prime Minister Blair is Labour but is genuinely a man struggling with deep ethical and personal religious issues (should he convert to his judge wife's Roman Catholicism?), and is highly atypical.
