The glorious neocon experiment that is Iraq

Is using slave labor to build the embassy. I can see Cheney's fingerprints all over this.

Via Chet at Vanity Press:

The Oversight Committee holds a hearing, "Allegations of Waste, Fraud, and Abuse at the New U.S. Embassy in Iraq." The hearing examines the performance of the State Department and its contractors in the construction of the new $600 million U.S. embassy in Baghdad. The Committee reviews questions regarding the embassy compound construction as well as allegations of labor abuse through improper contracting practices. Rory Mayberry, a former subcontractor employee for First Kuwaiti Trading & Contracting Company, gives opening testimony.

Slave labor was good enough for the pyramids, why isn't it good enough for this monument?
