HISTORY OF US BAGHDAD EMBASSY OPENED IN 2009 GW BUSH & OBAMA SPENT $850 MILLION ON 100 ACRE COMPOUND
In 2003 under Republican President George W. Bush the United States invaded Iraq and overthrew the government of Saddam Hussein. The U.S. then established diplomatic relations with the new Iraqi government. The old U.S. embassy was deemed unsafe for American diplomats and remained deserted so a temporary embassy was established in the Republican Palace. Then on 100 acres in 2005 construction began on the decadent Baghdad US 'palace.' The completion target date was September 2007. Pres Bush sent Congress an FY2005 emergency funding request for the embassy in Iraq. In 2013 Business Insider reported that the cost of the embassy had surpassed $750 million. The embassy formally opened behind schedule in January 2009 with a staff of over 16,000 people. In 2012 Obama requested more than $100 million for a "massive" upgrade to the compound. As of 2006, construction was being led by First Kuwaiti Trading & Contracting.  [Didn't even give the job to American contractors??] The embassy features extensive housing and infrastructure facilities in addition to diplomatic buildings as follows. Source Wikipedia

3-23-20, The risen Christ hid Himself from Cleopas and friend as they walked to Emmaus. He ultimately did reveal Himself to over 5000 people.

The Lord God created all living things for His pleasure [Genesis 1:28; Colossians 1:16]. Amazing that so many people refuse to obey Him. God said we must repent or perish [Luke 13:3].
