Homeland Security Can't Take the Heat

After George Galloway gave a spectacular, furious and insightful rebuttal to all the questions and allegations against him, pointing out it was our own Senate and Senators who were using "Oil for Food" as a smoke screen to avoid discussion of other crimes that were laid at the feet of the U.S., (i.e. billions of tax payers dollars lost in Iraq, pumping their oil wells unmetered with no record of where the new oil went, etc.") the Homeland Security Website mysteriously has no transcipt of Galloway's testimony, while it has a full transcipt of every other witness. Find his testimony here and see how fighting back is supposed to look. BBC covers it gleefully here. Juicy parts of the full transcript is here.

I was going to post that it wasn't there before you did and I kinda got sidetracked but it is weird how it's gone from the site.

I've emailed George to see if he'll sort it out so I'll let you know dude.

It's not there because the blistering download of facts and fury is a glaring torch of truth in the middle of all this obstruction. Past administrations would have posted it because that is the American Way, freedom of speech and thought. But not this administration, which has to hide, hide, hide the truth - constantly, at every turn, in every department, from every request. It is the most secret administration on record and a chilly omen for where it has turned this country.

I saw Gallaway on Charlie Rose the other night. Man, did he torch Norm Coleman. You have to like this guy. Coleman, and company, accuse him of accepting 20 miilion barrels of oil in return for opposing UN sanctions against Iraq based on a super secret newly discovered Iraq document. What does he do? He flies straight Washington to face his accusers. He asked on Charlie Rose, "Where did the oil go? Where is the money? Where is the original document? Coleman couldn't answer those questions in the committe meeting. It was beautiful. When is the last time you saw an American politician face scrutiny like that?

Doesn't happen on our side, people have lost their edge, anticipating reprisals, which is just what the right wants. Way for Galloway to lead the charge, it was beautiful.
