    Were any articles of clothing buried in the floor of the locker room? Osama's turban perhaps?

    Ah, yes. The new embassy complex. A stellar example of governmental efficiency and thrift, built to the highest standards by the finest people for the right amount of money. With the best safety features, to boot. Something we should all be proud of, and a real emblem of American success.

    It's big. It's only 4 acres smaller than the frickin' Vatican city.

    ****, you'd think once you're spending half a billion dollars, you could fork over a few extra mil to beat out the Vatican.

    I expect it has more underground levels than the Vatican. That would be quite a few though...

    Hopefully it's not quite as easy to stash a pedophile down there.
