Human Traffickin: The Solution to Iraq?

Just when you think that things could not POSSIBLY get better in Iraq, something else jumps out of the bush (or explodes from the roadside, it’s all the same really) and says: SURPRISE SURPRISE!

Take a look at this House Oversight Committee hearing yesterday.

So apparently we paid $600 million dollars to a Kuwaiti company to build our new Iraqi embassy, and the Kuwaiti contractor used abducted foreign labor and mistreated them. Just read this on-the-ground, eye-witness testimony (pdf) of human trafficking in this construction project, which, by the way, is only the largest State Department construction project in the world.

What a great way to spread Democracy in the Middle-East: using American people’s tax money to fund a construction projected built by slave labor.

God Bless America!
