Question time on Capitol Hill

British Parliament member George Galloway's denials of charges that he received ill-gained profits from Iraq's oil-for-food program may or may not be true. Either way, he livened up the proceedings during his U.S. Senate subcommittee testimony today.

One notable zinger: Galloway said he met former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein "exactly as many times as [Defense Secretary] Donald Rumsfeld has met with him. ... The difference is Donald Rumsfeld met him to sell him guns and give him maps. I met him to try and bring about an end to sanctions, suffering, and war."
