A lot of warfloggers harped on this story because it fit their view that all who opposed the war in Iraq were appeasers and closet traitors. No doubt we will hear a lot of public apologies from them now.
Why are you snickering?
MP George Galloway accepted undisclosed High Court libel damages and a public apology today over an article which said he had opposed the conflict in Iraq because he had been paid by Saddam's regime.
His solicitor, Mark Bateman, told Mr Justice Eady that the allegations in The Christian Science Monitor in April last year were "false and without foundation".
