Galloway was in Saddam's pay, say secret Iraqi documents
By David Blair in Baghdad
(Filed: 22/04/2003)

George Galloway, the Labour backbencher (Britian), received money from Saddam Hussein's regime, taking a slice of oil earnings worth at least 375,000 a year, according to Iraqi intelligence documents found by The Daily Telegraph in Baghdad.

Hmm... The story broke the 22nd, and we are the 22nd today, we should wait a few days before passing judgment, don't you think?

I, too, have become remarkably cynical in the last decade or so about media ad-genda (sic) and the false information disseminated by those who benefit from propaganda.
In a year or so it might come out that Saddam was on the CIA payroll, like Noriega et al.

It is kind of strange though that a single reporter could find compromising documents in the Iraqi secret services... But its quite possible, because it seems he did that MP did other strange things with travel expenses... and an official inquiry has been started.

Only when the official inquiry will be finished will we know the truth...
