29 Embassies For Sale -- But Congressmen are Still Cheaper

Uncle Sam's unloading a bunch of embassies around the world. Moving into new, safer quarters has put Washington in the world wide real estate business. From the AP:

"Some 29 properties worth more than $205 million are now on the market in 21 countries, including a huge and historic embassy annex in the heart of London, large chancery buildings in Panama, Nicaragua and Nepal and homes fit for envoys extraordinary in Belize and Venezuela."
The State Department even has a web page of it's real estate up for sale. Sorry, no bus benches with pictures of Condi Rice in a gold blazer though. (AP)
