The Coleman Cavalry
Galloway, an outspoken critic of the war in Iraq, called the panel’s investigation the “mother of all smokescreens” used to divert attention from the “pack of lies” that led to the 2003 invasion.
“I told the world that Iraq, contrary to your claims, did not have weapons of mass destruction. I told the world, contrary to your claims, that Iraq had no connection to al Qaeda. I told the world, contrary to your claims, that Iraq had no connection to the atrocity on 9/11, 2001,” he told the panel’s Republican chairman, Sen. Norm Coleman of Minnesota.
“Senator, in everything I said about Iraq, I turned out to be right and you turned out to be wrong. And 100,000 people have paid with their lives — 1,600 of them American soldiers sent to their deaths on a pack of lies, 15,000 of them wounded, many of them disabled forever, on a pack of lies.”
He added, “Senator, this is the mother of all smokescreens. You are trying to divert attention from the crimes that you supported.”
I’m starting to believe that Norm Coleman is the Bush Administration’s suicide bomber who can’t get it right…
