its a little embarrasin for sure!
not by their lights india is an icrediblely corrupt country where anything can be bought and every official has their hand out even for things they are obligated to do so it is nothing for them to lie or cheat and expect others will turn a blind eye unfortunately for them they lied to the ugovernment and that is a sure trip to the slammer
unless of course the us govt is lying to us then its ok
get your facts clear ..nowhere did the diplomat clainm she would pay the maid more than she was gettin herself!!theirs allready a civil case in india going on....how does america take cognisance of a maid who is indian subject to indian laws...did america do the right thing in geting their murderrer out of pakistan when he shot two guys he wasnt a diplomat ....just a hired gun!get real americans u cant have different rules when comes to you!!should the american embassy be doing commercial bussines by running bars and restaurants in new delhi be told to close and scoot!
