This could be for many old news but today I just happened to hear the entire senate hearing in which George Galloway delivered punches onto the US Senate committee hearing on 17th May 2005, seems as if the senators were simply taken aback at his opening statement and soon realized he would not be a simple scapegoat but would do down fighting. If you have not had a chance to hear the hearing then listen online at BBC.
“I have never seen a barrel of oil, owned one, bought one, sold one, and neither has anybody on my behalf,” he said. “The real sanctions busters were not me or Russian politicians or French politicians,” he continued, but “your own companies with the connivance of your own government.”
I think he won the battle hands down, he spoke eloquently, talked straight facts and I commend him for taking the challenge. Its now all about RESPECT
I read Galloways speech… quite somthing… it was a shame the full committee wasn’t there to hear it.
I posted about this a few days ago at my blog.
best part is, not a single channel or media outfit has picked it up in the US. here it was covered on the CBC in canada.
the british media seemed to pick it up. infact he was headline news over here. furthermore the labour party wants a recount on the seat george galloway won. they claim that there was a lot of voter fraud.
