“What you have witnessed,” recently elected British MP George Galloway said back in 2005, speaking of Christopher Hitchens’ support for the U.S.-Iraq War, “… is something unique in natural history: the first ever metamorphosis from a butterfly back into a slug.”

Galloway debated Hitchens at Baruch College in New York City with Amy Goodman of “Democracy Now!” moderating. Americans interested in learning what sort of character the citizens of Bradford West voted into the House of Commons in Friday’s by-election should watch Galloway defend the international anti-war movement against one of the most formidable rhetorical pugilists of our time. –ARK
