Galloway papers deemed forgeries | csmonitor.com

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.

Imagine that. The documents which were sold for a nice sum to the Christian Science Monitor, and which framed a leading anti-war activist as a paid stooge of a murderous dictator, were forged. How long before the Daily Telegraph files meet a similar fate, and Gorgeous George makes enough money in the libel courts to buy his own newspaper?
