Galloway Staff Confirms: Senate Documents are Frauds

The U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs held a hearing on the Oil-for-Food investigation May 17. At this hearing, George Galloway gave explosive testimony. Despite this, the Senate Committee had him listed at their official website as "did not make a statement." This was later changed to "Mr Galloway did not submit written statement." a A full transcript of this testimony is available here.

Radio News America contacted his office as to the veracity of the Senate claim and received the following reply from Mr. Ron McKay, Respect's press officer:

"We did not know it was custom to submit a written statement..."

and Mr.McKay goes on to say:

"...we are now going to submit GG's speech, as well as the demand that we are allowed to examine the documentation."

In fact, Mr. McKay states that Mr. Galloway wasn't "even properly invited to the hearing and the committee made its conclusions before, belatedly, issuing an invite through the media."

Mr. McKay further asserts that "the English-language documents are frauds. They are US translations of what appear to be - although they were almost totally obscured by the 'translations' in the photocopying - Arabic documents. But these grey smudges behind the US ones look like photocopies which, if they are, will be utterly discredited."

Our correspondence with Mr.McKay references an investigative report filed by OfficialWire, London which includes snapshots of the alleged fraudulent documents. Mr. McKay's confirmation of the false documents provided to the Senate and entered into the official records certainly raises questions as to the authenticity of the evidence provided against MP Galloway by Minnesota Senator Norm Coleman.

The Senate Committee and the American media have been mostly ignoring this story. Could it be that Mr. Galloway's testimony was more accurate than any of the accusations made by the Senate Committee?

Radio News America will continue to follow this story. We anticipate more statements from MP Galloway's office to be forthcoming.

Coleman is a spineless piece of shit with his head so far up the neo-con's ass, he will never smell anything but bullshit again.

That's awesome work!

Its shameful that the Senate would try to change history. We all saw it on TV. Are they next going to try to tell us Galloway never testified?

What are they going to do? Make us stare at Bush while they repeat in a monotonic voice:

"you didnt see Galloway
you didnt hear Galloway
Galloway doesn't exist..."
