Allies Cited for Human Trafficking

State Dept. Adds Arab Nations to List of Worst Offenders

The State Department yesterday added seven countries, including four Arab allies, to its list of worst offenders in failing to suppress human trafficking and forced labor, which it called “a modern day form of slavery.”

The 236-page annual survey, now in its seventh year, added Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman and Qatar to its blacklist of worst offenders, along with Algeria, Equatorial Guinea and Malaysia. Countries on the list are subject to sanctions until major reforms are introduced.


The list already included Burma, Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Uzbekistan and Venezuela. Laos, Belize and Zimbabwe were dropped from the list this year.

The world’s two most populous countries, China and India, were kept on an intermediate watch list, meaning their approach to trafficking is deemed deficient but not enough to face immediate U.S. sanctions.

Rep. Christopher H. Smith (R-N.J.), who sponsored the law that requires the report, contended that this year’s survey was too soft on China and India. In his view, they should have been placed on the list of worst offenders.

Ths USA spouts grand “Moral Values” to everyone on the planet. The flip side is that the USA lies through it’s teeth! The USA still has a foreign policy of “DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO, AND I WON’T LOOK IF YOU BREAK THE RULES …”

Human trafficking undermines any pretension that a country is democratic, Lagon said. “If people are treated as if they are subhuman and can be enslaved, the government is not fully living up to its democratic principles,” he said.

Disappointed? Always!

They say we are a Christian Nation … Think Again!

    Well, human trafficking and selling off your daughters is pretty Biblical, come to think of it. I suppose that makes Dina Lohan and Britney’s mom holy women.

    bosskitty, I was just reading this and other related reports. It sickens me to have Condi’s signature on this document, but it is a good one. Norway is very involved with NATO in stopping human trafficing.

    I meant to add:
    Until we can eradicate extreme poverty in the world, desperate people will do desperate things.


    It’s good to see several of the miscreant nations have been long standing friends of the Bush family crime syndicate.

    The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, does it?
