Human trafficking at Saudi diplomatic compound in Virginia?

I really hope that this was an unfortunate misunderstanding that will be cleared up very shortly.

A case of “possible human trafficking” at a Saudi diplomatic compound in Virginia is under investigation, Homeland Security confirmed to News4.

Agents from U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement/Homeland Security Investigations and Fairfax County police were called to a home in the 6000 block of Orris Street in McLean overnight and, in the words of a source familiar with the investigation, “rescued” two women. One woman reportedly tried to flee by squeezing through a gap in the front gate as it was closing.

…because if it’s not, well.  We tend to get a bit touchy on the subject of human slavery on American soil.

Bad touchy.

    Yes, but when we are represented by a chief executive that makes a regular habit of bowing to foreign heads of state, perhaps you can understand that I don’t necessarily trust that Jack, Diddly, or Squat will actually get done on this matter?

    PS: Full steam ahead on the development of Saudi Dakota, if you please.

      Ah, but it puts the numbnuts-in-chief in an interesting bind…

      The Dems have done too good a job at making slavery into a knee-jerk “down with that!” issue for them to let it slide *if it gets widely known* …

      Thing is, while he may be an American citizen, Obama’s childhood overseas did *not* give him the same knee-jerks that the rest of us have.. he’s going to be out of step here.

      I’m not sure how many Americans know that the Saudis, touted as our ally, keep slaves, for that matter. It’s been mentioned, but usually quietly.
      .
      In short, watch for another Gosnell-style media embargo as the media try to protect the numbnuts-in-chief from himself.

      Interesting Times .. if we can get this into the water.

    I’m starting to believe that particular corner of the world would look a lot better as a glass parking lot.

      Eh. That would take too much energy.

      Just let it quietly be known that, as long as Israel isn’t touched, the Russians are welcome to a very warm water port… provided they keep the oil moving.
