Boing Boing: Unsubstantiated Claim That State Department Covering Up Use of Slave Labor

I hope this story on Boing Boing about allegations that slave labor was used to build the American Embassy in Baghdad (by a Kuwaiti firm) is untrue.

I also wish that Boing Boing wouldn't turn a simple US State Department statement that the allegations are untrue into a coverup. After all, to state the obvious, it's possible that the allegations are untrue. Worse, there's nothing in Boing Boing's source for this post to support such an accusation, and I find it deplorable that they would manufacture one.

But of course the Left really needs no hard evidence to support accusations of American wrong-doing. To them, it's all simply self-evident.
