Baghdad,Iraq/ Madoff Investment News Update - "Holy Shit", that appears to be the uniform response by American Taxpayers when they heard the tab for the world's biggest embassy complex scheduled for completion momentarily in Iraq.
Covering 104 acres of shell pocked real estate, in a location so secret not even the US Ambassador is allowed to visit it, the complex is vast.
Comprised of 27 buildings to stockpile 1600 office workers and a security force of 600, completed costs are expected to be north of $1B....on a projected cost of $570M, before contracts were issued to the Kuwaitis and a handful of "play for pay" US Illinois based construction companies. who in turn subcontracted the entire project over to Jimmy Carter and a host of Hollywood "volunteers".
Details surrounding the purchase of the 104 acres is also a closely guarded secret. What investigative reporters have been able to find out so far is that Patty Blago, the Real Estate Diva wife of Illinois governor "Blago the Impaler", got a big piece of change for facilitating the deal from her one person office in Chicago, with help from Bill "Slick Willie" Clinton.
According to the General Accounting Office (GAO), the yearly operating budget to run "Fortress America" as it has been dubbed, will approach $2B per year, not including stocking the liquor cabinet or pest control.
Speaking of "Bugs", critics have said the building is already obsolete due to Carter's open door policy of peace and love, and allowing exchange workers from hostile countries to plant a plethora of hi tech bugs in the reinforced walls.
A last minute addition to the recreation facilities was a full length basketball court with light up scoreboard, and air conditioned boxes for Hollywood fans such as Jack Nicholson to view Barry and the Washington All Stars take on the Harlem Globe Trotters. (ed note: The Washington A-stars never win, Barry!)
Anonymous sources from the ruling government(s) (who the F***knows who's in charge), said the grounds will make a grand flea market, as soon as the infidels leave within the year. They expect to keep the McDonalds, Starbucks, and KFC franchises going, as long as the local Mullahs continue to get a percentage of the Franchise rights, and 20% of the profits.
