The Poster Boy of the Left in His Own Words

What the fawning press doesn't tell you about George Galloway, British MP.

Outspoken critic of Blair and Bush, Galloway has made a legislative career of supporting terrorists and criticizing everything that does not embolden the dictators he calls friends. Here's a sample from a speech he made from Baghdad in 1994:
To Saddam Hussein: "Your Excellency, Mr President. I greet you in the name of the many thousands of people in Britain who stood against the tide and opposed the war and aggression against Iraq and continue to oppose the war by economic means which is [sic] aimed to strangle the life out of the great people of Iraq... I greet you too, in the name of the Palestinian people...

I thought the President would appreciate to know that even today, three years after the war, I still meet families who are calling their newborn sons Saddam. I salute your courage, your strength your indefatigability. And if I want you to know that we are with you until victory, until victory until Jerusalem!"
If you liked that, you'll love this - a collection of treason from the mouth of Galloway. (You'll need Adobe Reader to view}

The Left in America love him. Jane Fonda is riding across the country with him now to protest the Iraq war with Vagina Monologues author, Eve Ensler. Are they so desperate for leaders that they'll turn to Sheehan and Galloway for direction?

Christopher Hitchens debated this "man" in New York City last week on Iraq policy. It was called by some, the "Scrapple in the Big Apple." You can download the mp3 Podcast here courtesy of Democracy Now. Or, read the transcript here courtesy
