I don't claim to know anything about politics.  Nor am I interested in learning.  I assume there's protocol and red tape and very little work actually getting done.

Safe assumption, I'd say.

You'd think a leader giving another leader a present wouldn't be that big of a deal.  But apparently, it could be misconstrued as a conflict of interest.  Maybe the giver would expect special treatment from the getter. (he's probably not even called the "getter", that's how little I pay attention to politics.

But to avoid conflicts, the president of Indonesia paid for his gift...which happens to be the box set of Metallica's Master of Puppets.

He paid $800 for it...but it only costs $150 on Amazon.  Maybe THAT is where the corruption lies?

Here's James Hetfield unboxing the aforementioned box set
