I doubt that we would hear anything new. Again they would be baseless accusations. As I understand there is no evidenses that mr.Galloway have received at least 1 penny.

Let's look at the picture. Oh, now mr.Galloway stands up and hold his speech...

Really can 2 meetings with Saddam be called as 'many meatings'?

Mr.Galloway refers to Hansard. It is official document. It can be checked.

Mr. Galloway pointed to serious factual mistakes in American meterials.

Mr.Galloway: "Case for the war was pack of lies".

Exactly!

On the place of mr.Galloway I would ask if you senator would know that there is no WMD in Iraq then would you appove the war?

Anyway, now it is clear that mr.Galloway hasn't received personally even a penny. Siply there is no even one document, even one evidence that could prove it.

He hasn't said "I knew of no proposal or plan from which I or mine might benefit financially etc etc", just that he hasn't owned oil, got no money, and had not heard of the company on the letter head.

For someone to be very specific, yet leave such a big hole is curious. I wonder how all this will play in the States ?. I understand all the news networks went for a live feed as soon as he entered the arena.

How much money did Don Rumsfeld take from Saddam Tom6?

I appreciate it wasn't for him personally , but did money or goods change hands?

Someone , somewhere is running an agenda, and George has seen right through it , and is taking the fight to them. Ireally don't like the man , but I have to admire the fact he's thrown the colours up and stood into danger.

As for elected representatives not taking money from Saddam....... Can you be sure that no elected representative ever has taken the Iraqi Dollar?

Someone somewhere had to ok the deals of the 80's.

Anyway , good luck George , don't go walking in woods or go for a swim anytime soon will you.

I read that some Congresscritter harrumphed that Mr. Galloway had better not have told the committee any whoppers or it'll go hard for him.
I am certainly not a fan of Galloway but I am curious as to how realistic the US congresscritter's comment of "it'll go hard for him" (if indeed accurate) seriously applies to an elected representative of another sovereign country's parliament.... What could the US actually do?

There IS a paper trail proving Galloway received oil contracts. Its absurd saying Rumsfeld received anything from Saddam. There are high French officials for example that are implicated as well. Saddam's regime kept very good records. Whether Galloway violated UK law is another matter. But the voters get the kind of representation they deserve.

Ahhh, here you go once again, repeating parrot fashion what Sean Hannity tells you to say.

Just like the paper trail that demonstrated the presence of WMDs? Give me a break. Like Galloway said, if there was a trail of evidence the Committee would be throwing it around the press pool like a New York ticker-tape parade.

People hate Galloway and many in the armed forces think he's a traitor, but he's also very careful about the claims he makes and has financed a rather large holiday villa in Portugal through the proceeds of the numerous libel suits he has filed. Personally I loved watching those pompous arrseholes get beaten like a ginger step-child.

By the way, to those who accuse the BBC of left wing bias- they got their talking head from The Heritage Foundation which is a right wing think tank and one of W's biggest cheerleaders, with no counterpoint from the left. Anyone who doesn't know that Heritage is filled with reactionaries would think that Galloway came off second best.

I appreciate what you're saying and can't comment on the paper trail since I haven't seen the evidence. However to revert back to my initial query - what can the US actually do about this? As far as I am aware the US does not have the power to prosecute foreign politicians and comments such as "it'll go hard for him" in this context really are counter-productive.

Tongue in cheek - you could say that Rumsfeld received quite a lot from Saddam indirectly. Without the action to remove him I don't believe Haliburton would have been able to fill its order book as much as it currently has...
