Sanctions didn't work

What other conclusion is possible when you read that Saddam and his cronies netted $21 B I L L I O N thanks to their subversion of the sanctions regime? It wasn't only the oil for food program. In fact, most of the $21bn was thanks to an oil smuggling operation that western governments ignored.

I wonder if George Galloway's name will (has?) come up in the Congressional Hearings? He said that the Daily Telegraph's report that he was one of those who benefited from Saddam's 'generosity' was a dagger through his "political heart".
