Galloway vs. the U.S Senate
Arash- "I have had two meetings with Saddam Hussein, once in 1994 and once in August of 2002. By no stretch of the English language can that be described as "many meetings" with Saddam Hussein." George Galloway
George Galloway( MP UK) has been a controversial figure for many years. He appeared before the U.S senate during the Senate's investigation of U.N's Oil For Food program. Galloway made some interesting remarks. You can watch the senate hearing HERE .
I must agree with Ali on one of his recent posts where he compared Galloway to a "hardcore Berkeley liberal". There are plenty of Galloways here on the Berkeley campus whom you cannot have a decent discussion with. Galloway makes some good points about Bush's war plans and the lack of evidence for the existence of WMDs. But Mr. Galloway proudly shook the hands of Saddam in 1994, a man who is responsible for the death of over a million Iraqis, Iranians and Kurds. You can Watch his comments about Saddam Hussein Here where he claims that most Iraqis actually liked Saddam! Watch the video and judge for yourself.
