Boy slavery charges in Dubai
Dubai's leaders, who paid a fortune to Bill Clinton for speeches, are facing charges of boy-enslavement. Dubai, which has burnished its image by spending millions on public relations and hiring power brokers in America-such as former President Bill Clinton-to deliver speeches despite its reputation for spreading anti-Semitism, now faces charges of enslaving boys who are forced to become camel jockeys for the enjoyment of Dubai's rulers. No comments yet from Hillary, who trumpets her goal of trying to protect and nurture children.
Dubai has plenty of money to spread around both parties, of course. No doubt Republicans have been beneficiaries, too. But Hillary's stance on children would seem to demand comment from her.
