Thread Name: BS: Galloway tears them to shreds
Subject: RE: BS: Galloway tears them to shreds
I finally got to hear the famous orator and I must say he stands up well under pressure, which begs the questions: Why has the senate taken on the task of investigating the Oil For Food program? Could it be to cover up their own underhanded dealings? Does the U.S. senate have any right to investigate citizens of other countries? Did the U.N. or Iraq ask them to do this on their behalf? I know they think they are the cops of the world but do they think they are the judges of the world, too? ...and that schmarmy Democrat had the nerve to say that Galloway was not credible.

Why does anyone think that the Oil For Food program wouldn't be corruptable? When the U.S. was informed of the Texan, Bayoil scam, why didn't they do something at that time? If it had been 'nipped in the bud', others may not have been so quick to jump on the bandwagon. Food distribution is always a matter of greasing the palms of many.

I really don't understand the focus on the Oil For Food program. What is the point? The program was about ending sanctions and feeding Iraqis wasn't it? Are Iraqis being fed now? The answer is that the rate of starvation has increased. I ask again - what is the point of this inquiry?

If Halliburton and Bayoil are called to testify, I might believe it is something more than a witch hunt. Until then, it looks like a re-run of the McCarthy hearings.

Give 'em hell, Galloway! They deserve it.
