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.

PS: I don’t care what the rules are in other countries.  This is the United States of America: we are not like other countries.

Ken Cuccinelli corybookers in Virginia.

If that verb takes off, I want 10% of the gross.

Anyway, Virginia AG (who happens to be also running for Governor) Ken Cuccinelli was driving along yesterday when

Cuccinelli was on his way back to Richmond on Friday after a meeting of his Human Trafficking Task Force in Staunton when he and his driver Cory Chenard noticed a semi-truck with a flatbed trailer carrying a heavy load in front of them an awful smelling smoke coming from it’s rear.

[snip]

“I skipped by the cab back to the back of the truck and sure enough it was still on fire,” he said.

Cuccinelli helped the driver out of the cab of the truck and then went in search of a fire extinguisher. After finding one he instructed Chenard to call for help and he ran to the back of the truck to help the driver put out the flames.

#rsrh QotD, Keywords Village Voice, Human Trafficking, Child Prostitution, Enablers Edition.

This one’s all about pumping up the Google rankings, folks.

In a statement released Wednesday, Sens. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), John Cornyn (R-Texas), Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) and Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) accused Village Voice Media of facilitating human trafficking and child prostitution.

Via Instapundit, who is not being a Buddha about this, either.  Possibly because Glenn also read what Village Voice Media allegedly helped enable (via Nicholas Kristof)…
