Then why are we building the largest, most expensive embassy ever? Does Iraq’s economy need stimulus too? According to FOX News:

The compound is six times larger than the United Nations compound in New York, and two-thirds the size of the National Mall in Washington.

It has space for 1,000 employees with six apartment blocks and is 10 times larger than any other U.S. embassy.
