Follow the Money

More Iraq cash tracked to MP;

Days after a US Senate committee tracked a $US150,000 ($200,000) payment to the MP's now estranged Palestinian wife, the UN inquiry reported that Amina Naji Abu Zayyad had earlier received a series of transfers totalling $US120,000.

Watch the press go after Galloway. It should be a concerted effort from the usual shills. Fabulous.

Watch them go quiet when he successfully cleasr his name and proceeds to rip the Iraq invasion freaknoughts another hole. Spectacular action.

As usual, Kurt Nimmo puts the whole extravaganza into the appropriate context;

The so-called Oil for Food scandal obfuscates the real issue—the sanctions imposed against Iraq by a maidservant United Nations (and enforced by US and British warplanes) were responsible for killing more than a million people, half of them defenseless children. Denis Halliday, United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator in Baghdad, resigned his post in 1997. “I don’t want to administer a programme that satisfies the definition of genocide,” said Halliday. Halliday’s successor, Hans von Sponeck, also resigned. “How much longer can democratically elected governments hope to get away with justifying policies that punish the Iraqi people for something they did not do, through economic sanctions that target them in the hope that those who survive will overthrow the regime? Is international law only applicable to the losers? Does the UN security council only serve the powerful?” von Sponeck and Halliday wrote for the Guardian in November, 2001.

Nasty Galloway and his self-serving charity must go down!
