“The Jordanian businessman accused of passing oil money from Saddam Hussein to George Galloway has revealed that he is once again trading in Iraq and making trips to America with the approval of the US authorities.”

The Independent reports today that Fawaz Zureikat says “neither the new government in Baghdad nor US officials had raised any objections to him renewing his trade with Iraq.” These allegations emerge as Galloway himself will face his accusers in Washington over charges he received vouchers for 20 million barrels of oil from Saddam during the Oil for Food program.

I’m happy to be proven wrong, but somehow I suspect that the mud being thrown at Galloway will not stick. I smell a Republican hatchet job.
