Galloway documents "fakes"

Remember the Iraqi secret documents proving that bolshy anti-war MP George Galloway was a traitor in the pay of Saddam? Well, it now looks like they're highly dubious. (via NWD)
A scrawl claimed to be Mr Galloway's signature on "receipts" has no similarity to his real one. The operation, revealed by the Mail on Sunday, also threw up glaring misspellings of Iraqi officers' names and mistakes in the title of Saddam's son Qusay, also said to have signed the document.

The documents were offered for sale by a former Republican Guard General. What is the world coming to if you can't trust the Iraqi Republican Guard?

And who ever said that the establishment media don't take in part in producing black propaganda for their intelligence community friends? No, that could *never* happen. If this Galloway incident is this dodgy, it will quickly disappear into the Memory Hole.

The original documents were allegedly found by a journalist, with no mention of an RG general playing a role. This article appears to refer to a second set of documents. http://media.guardian.co.uk/presspublishing/story/0,7495,941869,00.html http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=%2Fnews%2F2003%2F05%2F06%2Fnirq306.xml

Considering that there are scalliwags peddling documents recovered from one of Saddam's ubiqitous 'palaces' proving that GWB, Bush I and Tony Blair were private business partners of Saddam Hussein involved in a massive protection racket blackmailing the other gulf arab states for billions, who can you trust?
