    Forgot to mention Newsnight also called attention to "Mr Galloways' supporters" who are claiming the documents that have been presented in evidence are fake. The info can be found at

    The short version:

    Look closely at the entry, which is reproduced above.

        * The typeface (font) used for "Mr George Galloway" is different to the rest of the line. Indeed the only time this font is used in the entire document is where George Galloway's name appears.
        * "Mr George Galloway" does not line up with the rest of the words in the entry. It is at an angle to the other words.
        * The spacings between "Mr George Galloway" and the rest of the words are inconsistent.
        * The dash after the words "Mr George Galloway" touches the following word.
        * The words "Mr George Galloway" are at a different type density (lighter) than the rest of the line.

    The most likely explanation is that the words "Mr George Galloway" have been added after the list was prepared, perhaps stuck on and then photocopied to produce the list in the Duelfer Report.

    Elsewhere the Duelfer Report revisits this same contract note and, citing an internal Iraqi document, says the allocation was to "Fawaz Zuraiqat -- Mariam's Appeal".

    Was this the original name, which was then changed in order to smear George Galloway?

    I personally don't believe that this is enough evidence to throw out the document (aside from the last part but remember this is from a site of Galloway supporters and I haven't had time to confirm that yet) but if it's good enough for CBS....
