Galloway Senate Video

The complete testimony of George Galloway to Senators Norm Coleman and Carl Levin can be found here. Galloway has a great scottish accent.

The idea that, with so much else on their plate, these Senators would be concerned with a UK member of parliament is somewhat odd and certainly arrogant. Some claim that AIPAC is pushing the buttons here.

These two Senators were the only ones to show up to the hearing and, C-SPAN elected not to broadcast it. Apparently the effort was not very popular.

Galloway does more than hold his own against the accusations, and, whether his charity received money via the oil for food program or not, his summary of the US record in Iraq is stinging.

UPDATE:Someone pointed out the the video linked to above is incomplete. I did not notice. Here is a link to another video as well as transcript.

Galloway was extremely good. For once, someone in Washington said what they really thought.
The American media has, of course, not repeated the content of his forceful address. Indeed, American newspaper and television reports take his guilt for granted, they invariably refer to him as "linked to.." as opposed to "alleggedly linked to.."...
We are in a sorry state indeed when guilt is presumed and when we have to wait upon the arrival of a foreigned for the truth to be uttered on the Hill.
Senator Coleman's post-hearing comment that "Mr Galloway is not a credible witness" was singularly pathetic. Apriori, the only "credible witnesses" are those who repeat the lies that have been increasingly produced in Washington. But then, of course, who cares, if those "ragheads" don't welcome the "freedom and democracy" that will enable the US to steal their oil then they deserve to be wiped out.
Hitler is starting to look good by comparison with our own neo-Nazis.

The full transcript of Galloway's senate presentation, including the famous 4-minute video by MSNBC is found on this link:

The piece is threaded to other links which are embedded in Galloway's presentation.

The one you gave is still incomplete.

Hooray for Galloway. A true hurricane of a breath of fresh air, that some of the well-meaning but spineless members of the US Congress and Senate should use as inspiration!

Check out a certain well known blogger making pained faces behind Galloway as he speaks.

Look at the "happyface" smirk he gets when Levin attempts to "frame" Galloway's responses, which Galloway wouldn't allow.

He also happened to have a guest blogger on his blog, dissing Galloway's victory, and also, coincidently, celebrating some Jewish Holiday.

Bad George. Mustn't say the "Z" word.

The US Senate Subcommittee excluded Galloway's statement from its website.
