Congress gets pwn3d  
MSNBC - British Parliament Member George Galloway testifying before Congress
(Real Media format, 3.7mb)

Too bad this will get like no play in the media.
Quote from speech: "Senator, in everything I said about Iraq, I turned out to be right and you turned out to be wrong and 100,000 people paid with their lives; 1600 of them American soldiers sent to their deaths on a pack of lies; 15,000 of them wounded, many of them disabled forever on a pack of lies.

If the world had listened to Kofi Annan, whose dismissal you demanded, if the world had listened to President Chirac who you want to paint as some kind of corrupt traitor, if the world had listened to me and the anti-war movement in Britain, we would not be in the disaster that we are in today. Senator, this is the mother of all smokescreens. You are trying to divert attention from the crimes that you supported, from the theft of billions of dollars of Iraq's wealth."

I would love that to be the Headline in the papers. Too bad the media will never play it. Makes you really think about the supposed left leaning media now don't it (pssst the media has been right wing since the 80's, they just don't tell anyone).

But that quote is perhaps the best description I have seen yet of the Iraq war.

Galloway was off the hook! But I think his Scottish accent will be a barrier to American republicans' really paying attention to what he had to say...
