Paid to be a traitor (Galloway)
The Sun (U.K.) ^ | 04/22/03 | Trevor Kavanaugh

Sickening ... Galloway presents Saddam with
pennant in Baghdad in 1994

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 Saddam’s sadistic state machine.

In return for a gigantic £375,000-a-year, stolen from the impoverished Iraqi people, this traitor toured the world’s media proclaiming the Butcher of Baghdad a kind and decent human being.


Hero ... Galloway in front of Saddam portrait

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 Saddam’s 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 MP’s pay or from proceeds of his litigious pursuit of so-called defamation claims.


Branded ... Sun front page

Galloway is a silver-tongued bully who has always been surrounded by a cloud of suspicion over his shifty activities, his manipulation of other people’s 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 Hussein’s 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 Saddam’s personal orders.

At no point did Galloway ask the tyrant about the torture chambers in the dungeons of Saddam’s 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 Saddam’s regime.

Asked about the troublemaker’s 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 Party’s 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.

It may be just imagination, but I fancy I notice a slight change of emphasis in the treatments accorded this story by, respectively, the Telegraph, the Independent, and here, the Sun. But I know this is big news by the fact that for the first time in the war it's kicked the scantily-clad ladies off the front page of the latter.

I'm sure there will be similar information about high level pay outs to officials in Paris and Berlin and I wouldn't be surprised to see some US officials and members of Congress emerge too.

MP= Member of Parliament, more or less equivalent to a member of the US House of Representatives.

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.

If they keep digging, they will find at least Bonior and McDermott. Hillary is probably on their payroll, but too smart to have left a trail. Or maybe those records will turn up with some more Rose Law Firm records in 5 years or so.

Sun: There have long been questions over the way a nonentity backbencher like Galloway could afford his lavish lifestyle of fast cars and fast women.

Galloway recently said that the saddest event of his life so far has been the fall of the Soviet Union. In that same interview he called John Lennon's Imagine the "socialist anthem."

Does anyone have the previous article in the Sun Times about Galloway before this came out. I think I posted it. I was shocked at what he said and was doing. This was several weeks ago. Now we know why he was acting this way.

Can't wait to see the list from US. This is going to be interesting. It may even get fun. These rats, regardless of affiliation, should be immediately ejected from office.

Your photo of Scott Ritter has me thinking, but I'm probably the 10,000th person to think this (guess I'm slow)...

Ritter had all the little girls he wanted while he was inspecting in Iraq. And Ritter's Iraqi dossier kept him in Sadaam's camp for the last two years, spouting the Baathist Party line.

Holy smokes, and now you know ... the rest of the story!

Well, there's just no doubt about it. We owe it to the Iraqi people to seek the extradition of Mr. Galloway to Iraq, pending his trial for conspiring with Saddam Hussein to commit crimes against humanity.

And when we find the files on Mssr. ChIraq, we'll have no choice but to do the same. Can't just look the other way. These are crimes against humanity, you know. :-)

Lovely pic. Looks like he's attempting to grow a Clinton nose. It's not quite there, yet, but with more practice...

This is off topic, but did I read somewhere that you are in Visalia?

Here's the first article with damning proof of his perfidy:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/897567/posts
Galloway was in Saddam's pay, say secret Iraqi documents (PACIFISTS ON SADDAM PAYROLL)
The Daily Telegraph ^ | April 22, 2003 | David Blair
George Galloway, the Labour backbencher, received money from Saddam Hussein's regime, taking a slice of oil earnings worth at least £375,000 a year, according to Iraqi intelligence documents found by The Daily Telegraph in Baghdad.
The documents, complete with scans of the letters.
How David Blair found the documents
While children are in the dungeon, this piece of dirt cries, "NO WAR".

Chirac? I would say he was on the Torture King's payroll for millions per year, without a doubt. If a small time left-wing criminal like Galloway got 375K Pounds ($800K) per year, Chirac's big lifestyle demanded 10X that.

The Germans sold out cheaper, would be my guess.
