Located beside the Tigris River, the embassy will have features the Iraqi people used to have - a defense force and uninterrupted electricity and water. With 21 buildings, it will be ironically located down the street from Saddam Hussein’s former presidential palace.
All I was able to find on the new embassy was the articles I have hyper-linked here. It is so secret that I concluded it has to be more than an embassy, but rather a presidential library for Mr. Bush. After all, what more fitting a location than Iraq? We gone be up in that camp for years to come if the exercise historically recorded by the British is any indication. This embassy is a strong indication of this, being the largest in the world.
To me doing such tells the Iraqi people and government who is really in charge and who has the final say on THEIR democratic government. But why would the Iraqi’s be mad? Although they say the U.S. ambassador to Iraq will beliving in a house approximatelly 16,000 square feet, it seems like he trying to build his library in a place where he will be most reknown. Picture that, Bush Presidential Library of Bagdad. It is the least he can do since he assisted in the destruction of the historical libraries in the country. I’m just glad its over there.
