The deputy leader of the Arab emirate of Dubai has become the subject of a class-action lawsuit in Kentucky that accuses him of encouraging the enslavement of thousands of boys for use as jockeys in camel races in the Middle East.
If the suit is heard against Sheik Hamdan bin Rashid al-Maktoum, who is also the finance and industry minister of the United Arab Emirates, it has the makings of an embarrassing international incident. The Emirates is a key American ally and hosts more U.S. Navy ships than any other country.
Apparently he's also contributed a LOT of money to Clinton's campaign. What a surprise!
