Wow, you've made some serious accusations

Reader comment on item: What Riyadh Buys [in Washington]
in response to reader comment: Corruption in the US Embassy, Kuwait

Submitted by Jeff (United States), Mar 9, 2007 at 06:18

You claim that Richard Jones was on the take in Kuwait, accepting millions of dollars in bribes, and that he "conveniently left the embassy to work in other corrupt regimes". 1) Trying to ruin a man's reputation is a very serious thing. Prove your claims, or even offer a little bit of evidence. 2) "Conveniently leaving" is part of his job -- he was rotated out. I don't know if this was convenient for him, but I note he is now serving in Tel Aviv as Ambassador. 3) He has not changed employers, and hasn't gone to work for some other "corrupt regime".
