Secretary of State Hillary Clinton appears to have received the most expensive gift, described as white gold jewelry with teardrop rubies and diamonds containing a necklace, a bracelet, earrings, and a ring.
Bestowed upon Clinton by King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia, the jewelry is valued at half a million dollars. It is pending transfer to the GSA, according to the State Department....
Descriptions of each of the gifts to White House, agency and military officials was accompanied by the blanket justification that, Non-acceptance would cause embarrassment to donor and U.S. Government.

Half a mil isn't a "gift" it's either a bribe or payment for services rendered.
Lighten up. What self-respecting polyester pants suit doen’t want to be properly accessorized?
The next President must continue the support for Sunnis.
I wonder if she plans to pay taxes on them?
Same thing with Commiecare.
I bet Chelsea got some nice gifts also.
Half a million in Saudi Arabia is what they call....a top for valet parking. It’s nothing.
When casting pearls before swine just isn’t good enough.
If the embarrassment of the US Government was truly a consideration, this entire administration and 90% of the legislature ought to step down.
There is only one kind of bracelets I’d like to see Hillary in...
Gifts of jewelry are only news in the Washington Post if they are given to the wife of Republican Governor of Virginia, Bob McDonnell.
Inscribed on the jewelry is the Arabic word for “pwned”.
Look up “GREEDY WHORE” in Webster’s and you will find the picture of a beast... hildebeast!
“Pending transfer” to GSA, eh?
In the meantime check Huma’s underwear drawer?
Question: after all these years of this “policy” why do the rich arabs continue to gift items like this to US political figures?
Nothing is easier than to pimp a feminist despite all their overreaction to “patriarchy”. Quite the oedipian hypocrisy and short sightedness.
I remember Bush Sr. Hypocrisy when he rebuffed Kuwait s attempt to give gulf war soldier liberators 10000 dollar each. Can’t be making veterans, soldiers and Christians the heroes...
probably not “hypocrisy”
almost undoubtedly this would be prohibited by our law or interational laws or both, prohibiting foreign leaders from awarding “booty” (in many cases ill gotten) to our troops or other Americans acting in the service of the US
Post of the day!!
Definitely not a bribe from Saudi Arabia?
She took White House historic furniture when she was the first lady.
She probably took the White House dinnerware too when she left.
Hillary is a thief.
the Saudis know well the gift rules.
This was given for another purpose. What could it be????
Talk about lipstick on a pig...
Which is why it's so easy for them to buy US politicians.
That’s the kind of low cost “costume jewelry” the Saudi’s sell at the Walmart in downtown Riyadh. $500K is NOTHING -—
Damn near an insult!
Maybe Hillary is banging a Saudi Prince. The guy must be a necrophiliac.
