Senate Pretends Galloway Never Testified

Galloway Senate testimony PDF goes AWOL: Evidence 'missing' from Committee website
Iain Thomson, vnunet.com 20 May 2005

The website for the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs has removed testimony from UK MP George Galloway from its website.

All other witness testimonies for the hearings on the Oil for Food scandal are available on the Committee's website in PDF form. But Galloway's testimony is the only document not on the site.

Go here to see the testimony curiously absent:

and for a link to the actual testimony that so offended the US govt. that it was actually blocked from distribution go here:

I'm not really sure how much proof is needed to demonstrate the ridiculous lengths the current govt. will go to prevent the public from obtaining any type of information that is critical of the govt., but one would think this sort of behavior should be considered unacceptable.
