Watch: Outraged British MP Shreds U.S. Republicans, Blasts Iraq War Lies (VIDEO)

In 2005 the Bush administration, or someone with ties to the administration, attempted to frame an anti-war British MP named George Galloway.

As with the more recent Planned Parenthood investigation, a republican led senate committee relied heavily on forged documents published and circulated by right wing media outlets to accuse and discredit Galloway, an outspoken critic of the war in Iraq.

In 2003, Galloway won a libel suit against The Daily Telegraph, the first media outlet to publish forged documents implying his involvement in an Oil For Food scam. Relying on forged documents, the article published in The Daily Telegraph referred to  Galloway was “a traitor,” claimed that he was being paid by Saddam Hussien to oppose the war, and went so far as to refer to him as “Saddam’s little helper.”

In a failed attempt to defend against the libel suit, The Daily Telegraph stated:  “It has never been the Telegraph’s case to suggest that the allegations contained in these documents are true,” but that they were justified in printing it anyways. Galloway was awarded 150,000 British pounds, plus an additional 2 million pounds for legal costs.

A second article, published by the Christian Science Monitor, made similar allegations against the British MP. That article was later retracted, and the Christian Science Monitor printed a follow-up to the story in which the publication admitted that the documents were “sophisticated forgeries.” Galloway filed a second libel suit against the Christian Science Monitor, and received an undisclosed sum for the damage that was purposely done to his reputation.

A year later, Senate republicans brought Galloway to the U.S., using the forged documents as the basis for a malicious smear campaign investigation into alleged criminal activity by an outspoken critic of the Iraq War and admitted enemy of the Bush administration.

During that hearing, Galloway gave one of the most brutally honest and passionate critiques of the Iraq War you will ever hear.

For four long minutes, he totally eviscerated republican senator Norman Coleman, who orchestrated the bogus senate hearings to smear him in the media. He slammed the Bush administration and the “pack of lies” told to the world about Iraq. He destroyed Dick Cheney’s Halliburton, along with the rest of the greedy U.S. corporations that raped and plundered the country and the Iraqi people.

The World needs to hear this.

Documents released earlier this month prove that George W. Bush was plotting to invade Iraq long before he presented a list of lies to the U.S. Congress. What’s more, those documents further confirm the fact that Bush lied about everything pertaining to the Iraq War. Those who knew and stood up for the truth, like Galloway, were maliciously attacked by the Bush administration, with whom former Senator Coleman had a very close relationship.

As Jeb Bush brings his brother George W. Bush out onto the campaign trail, it’s vital that the American people do not allow these barbaric brothers to gloss over the horrific crimes committed by the George W. Bush administration in Iraq.
