Galloway: Blair Assassination “Logical”

The appalling George Galloway is at it again, justifying the assassination of Prime Minister Tony Blair in a magazine interview:

Galloway was quoted as saying an attack on Blair that caused no other casualties would be a justifiable response to Britain’s support for the 2003 U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.

“It would be entirely logical and explicable — and morally equivalent to ordering the deaths of thousands of innocent people in Iraq as Blair did,” the monthly GQ magazine quoted Galloway as saying.

Galloway–who is in Cuba at the moment–says that he wasn’t calling on anyone to assassinate the Prime Minister.

The AP article linked above contains a fairly humorous summary of Galloway’s public career, including his notorious Celebrity Big Brother stint:

Galloway spent three weeks last year starring on the reality TV show “Celebrity Big Brother” and was ridiculed for scenes in which he lapped up imaginary milk and purred like a cat.

His decision to participate in the program — away from his duties in Parliament and alongside a topless model, an androgynous pop singer and former NBA star Dennis Rodman — resulted in criticism from constituents and lawmakers.

UPDATE: Tom Joscelyn has more on Galloway’s trip to Cuba. Galloway never met a murderous thug he didn’t like.
