British politician George Galloway went eyeball to eyeball with Senate investigators yesterday, calling allegations he took oil bribes from Saddam Hussein a "pack of lies" and labeling the U.N. oil-for-food scandal probe "the mother of all smokescreens."A transcript of Galloway's testimony is available here.
"You have nothing on me, senator, except my name on lists, many of which have been drawn up after the installation of your puppet government in Baghdad."
"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."
"In these circumstances, knowing what the world knows about how you treat prisoners in Abu Ghraib prison, in Bagram Air Base, in Guantanamo Bay ... I'm not sure how much credibility anyone would put on anything you manage to get from a prisoner in those circumstances."
"As a matter of fact, I met Saddam Hussein exactly the same number of times as Donald Rumsfeld met with him."
