Galloway papers deemed forgeries
'On April 25, 2003, this newspaper ran a story about documents obtained in Iraq that alleged Saddam Hussein's regime had paid a British member of Parliament, George Galloway, $10 million over 11 years to promote its interests in the West. An extensive Monitor investigation has subsequently determined that the six papers detailed in the April 25 piece are, in fact, almost certainly forgeries.'

The question of who forged, planted and 'discovered' these documents is almost as interesting and important as in the case of the forged Nigerian uranium documents. The issue will be how far to the top of the UKUSA apparatus the forgery can be traced; and to what lengths these people are prepared to go to to falsify pretexts for war and to discredit their opponents.
