Saudis Accused of Trafficking
Charges of human trafficking are flying after two Filipino abductees escaped from the Saudi Arabia embassy in McLean, Ariz.
This incident follows a suspicious fire that completely gutted the diplomatic quarters of the United Arab Emirates, also in McLean, Va. Firefighters tried to extinguish that blaze but suffered from a lack of water and propane gas tank explosions within the complex. It was at 818 Turkey Run Road — close to the CIA headquarters and next door to the home of Steve Ricchetti, chief of staff for former Vice President Joe Biden. Obviously, the diplomatic staff will not be talking to authorities, citing their rights to immunity. But a push should be made to further investigate the fire and also to use luminol to test the grounds for any lingering residues from possible slaves. Countries engaged in such trafficking must have their diplomatic corps cut and expelled.
