Did Dubai buy children?

I saw a link to a BBC article last night in The Reaction and if it’s true that the Ruler of Dubai, a country that has been touted as pro-Western and a friend to the US has enslaved, starved and mistreated thousands of children kidnapped from the Sudan, Bangladesh and southeast Asia to be used in the sport of camel racing things there may not be as idyllic as one might think from the amazing architecture and massive wealth of that flower in the desert.

A suit against Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al-Maktoum, his brother Hamdam and 500 others has been filed here in Florida where the Sheik owns property. Of course an accusation is an accusation, but I am sure that the Bush administration will come forth to tell us that as they are not US citizens, they should have no rights to a trial and should be locked up in solitary forever and ever and should certainly be tortured. Precedent is precedent after all.

Yeah, I agree - that's exactly what the consistently fair and cogent Bush administration will do to bring about impartial justice. Right.
