Speaking Truth to Power

George Galloway is my new hero. Finally, someone with the cajones to call the war what it is -- a pack of lies -- and to call Congress and the Bush administration what they are -- co-conspiring war criminals. What he has said will ring around Capitol Hill, though it might take a while for its full impact to be felt. It's certainly inspired me to write a letter to the editor of my local daily, and I encourage readers to do the same.

Here's the report of his speech from the BBC (still tracking down a transcript), here's the video of his statement. Do yourself a favour and watch it.

Update: here's a Whitman's Sampler of the choicest quotes, and probably the largest amount of truth printed in a single article on this topic in quite some time.

Update2: Found the transcript on Daily Kos at last.
