"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

New bit of information on the Galloway scandal.

The businessman who acted as George Galloway's intermediary in Baghdad was arrested as the war began and held incommunicado for 30 days by Jordanian intelligence officers, it emerged yesterday.

The arrest of Fawaz Zureikat followed a raid on his offices in Amman by Dairat al Muk-habarat, the Jordanian secret service, which seized documents, accounts, and computer disks relating to his businesses and political activities.

Mr Zureikat, a Jordanian, was released shortly before a confidential memorandum was unearthed in Baghdad's looted foreign ministry. It alleges that Mr Galloway had received £375,000 a year in pay-offs from the Iraqi government.
