Galloway and US Oil Accusers

When I was in France a couple of weeks ago I’d watch bits of BBC World News to keep somewhat connected to current events and one of the big things was George Galloway’s testimony in front of the US Congress. He ripped them a new one and their were a number of choice bits:

I know that standards have slipped over the last few years in Washington but for a lawyer you are remarkably cavalier with any idea of justice

The difference is Donald Rumsfeld met him to sell him guns and maps – the better to target those guns. I met him to try to bring about an end to sanctions, suffering and war.

I’m under the impression that it didn’t get much coverage in North America, especially in the US. What’s your impression? Did you even hear of it?

Never piss off the Scots.

My perception of it was that it got some play in Canada but was quietly downplayed by mainstream US media. However, left-wing blogs like Atrios were all over it.

I read the testimony. It was a beautiful thing.
