State Department to spend $400,000 on camel sculpture in Pakistan

From Buzzfeed:

The State Department is planning to spend $400,000 in taxpayer funds to buy a sculpture for the new American embassy being built in Islamabad, Pakistan, according to contracting records.

To put the sculpture’s price tag into a local perspective, the average yearly income in impoverished Pakistan is about $1,250 per year, according to the Agency for International Development.

With a national debt of over $17 Trillion, this seems like a great use of taxpayer money.
