    ...when you hire contractors to build you the biggest frickin' embassy on the planet and these contractors also happen to be your campaign contributors, you are probably not terribly surprised that they shanghai hapless foreign workers in Kuwait and make them earn their ticket home with next to slave wages.  
    Where does all the contracting money go?  Umm, I dunno, but I hear they are building a branch of the Louvre in Dubai and the new Ritz there sure looks swell, what with all those man-made islands in the shape of continents and all.  

    The guy who wrote Imperial Life in the Emerald City is no doubt writing a sequel.
