Exceeding my capacity for schadenfreude

I think it's absurd that the US government has spent nearly $600 million on a compound in Baghdad (through a company with Cheney connections), and even more absurd that it's a compound on the scale of an imperial village (see previous here), and yet it merely makes my head hurt that the thing has been so badly built that it cannot be occupied by its intended military and diplomatic residents. Electrical fires, slowly emitted chloroform gas -- you couldn't make this stuff up!

Update: Waxman to investigate, everything from the coerced labor to the resulting problems...
