This little oddity of an article in the Washington Post harps on mainly a couple of run-down African embassies in DC. Conspicuous in its absence is the old Iraq Embassy on R Street near Sheridan Circle. When this little Iraq invasion started, the Iraqi Embassy was abandoned and is now overgrown with weeds. Why not mention that one? Apparently because Iraq is doing a multi-million dollar makeover and move to a different location... right across the street from Dick Cheney's VP mansion.
