On The Take

UK Labour MP George Galloway, who viciously attacked UK Prime Minister Tony Blair over Iraq has now been revealed to have taken £375,000 a year from Saddam’s Mukhabarat secret police.

Galloway’s actions are tantamount to treason against Great Britain. He was taking money from the same Iraqi agency responsible for thousands of Iraqi deaths and using it to undermine the government of the United Kingdom. He should be charged with war crimes for such reprehensible actions.

How many others were on the Mukhabarat’s payroll? How deep does this Iraqi bribery run? These questions may very well be answered in the coming months, and the repercussions from such answers could be shocking.

  1. You state this as a fact? As if he was convicted by a court? Whatever has happend to “innocent until proven guilty”? All I see is a news article citing “found evidence” in some looted ministry, which we don’t see or cannot verify. A news article published by a very biased Daily Telegraph. The say he gets the money through the “food for oil” program – since this completly runs through the UN and therefore is documented they should be able to proof this allegation.

  2. The documentation is available with the article, and it appears very damning. The Telegraph wouldn’t publish something like this unless they were quite sure that there was solid evidence – evidence sufficient to stand under the UK’s strict libel rules.

  3. A reporter speaking to the Guardian made a pretty conclusive logical argument regarding the authenticity of the documents:

    “Nobody steered me in that direction at all. We just went and purely by chance we stumbled across this room which had these files in it, and again purely by chance we came across these files which carried the label Britain. And it was two days before we had actually gone through the contents and found this document. I find it very hard to believe that this document is not authentic. I think it would require an enormous amount of imagination to believe that someone went to the trouble of composing a forged document in Arabic and then planting it in a file of patently authentic documents and burying it in a darkened room on the off-chance that a British journalist might happen upon it and might bother to translate it. That strikes me as so wildly improbable as to be virtually inconceivable.”
