Official: Human trafficking probe at Saudi diplomat's home

Source: CNN

Washington (CNN) -- Federal authorities are investigating a potential case of human trafficking at the suburban Washington home of a Saudi diplomat, officials said Wednesday.

Authorities were called Tuesday afternoon to an upscale neighborhood in McLean, Virginia, where they "removed two potential trafficking victims," U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Brandon Montgomery told CNN.

A State Department official said the McLean house is the home of the Saudi military attaché.

The case is under investigation by Homeland Security Investigations, a unit within ICE.

3. For his person, for the embassy, etc.

What will be interesting, if we get that far, is when he asks for his property back.

4. Do the rulers in Kuwait and Saudi still have a harum?

The reason why I mention this is because there are willing women to hook up with the rulers who marry them but then quickly divorce them. These assholes have many wives and are always looking for a younger one. Here's an article on one of the 65 yo assholes that does this:

Do the Saudi's also have this attitude and or practice? Yep they do.

Think US women are treated as sex objects? Seems like that is nothing compared to what these assholes do. I know this is about trafficking but I am just saying that there is an attitude by some of these higher ups in the rulers group. Seems to me that when you have a new young women coming into the harum and the old one getting divorce that is a sort of trafficking. To get divorced the man only has to say in public "I divorce you, I divorce you, I divorce you"
