George Galloway Has Traveled in Strange Company

                                   Galloway and his motley crew in Gaza

Jamal al Harith was a British subject who was released by the Americans from Guantanamo Bay in 2004. He was killed Monday driving an explosive-laden truck into an Iraqi army base near Mosul. Oh yes. One other fun fact: In 2009, he was part of George Galloways's Viva Palestina convoy to Gaza.

Currently, Galloway is still running around the fringes of British society trying to get back into Parliament. He gives speeches, gets things thrown at him and on him, and generally keeps the British public laughing, much like the late Benny Hill used to do. Galloway is a slapstick character who always gets involved in one muck or another. For you American readers, imagine a Laurel and Hardy movie, and you get an idea of the life of George Galloway.

Someday when my grandson is old enough, I can tell him that George Galloway once called me a liar.
