Vart tog den extremt värdefulla flaskan med japansk whisky vägen?

Det frågar sig det amerikanska utrikesdepartementet sedan dyrgripen, som ska ha getts i gåva till den tidigare utrikesministern Mike Pompeo, försvunnit spårlöst.

Själv har Pompeo inget som helst minne av att ha tagit emot flaskan med de dyrbara dropparna, skriver USA Today. Äkta mattor från Kazakstan och Saudiarabien är presenter han minns, men någon japansk märkeswhisky kommer han inte ihåg.

Mysteriet började med att amerikanska UD:s protokollkontor, som har i uppgift att registrera och hålla reda på vad toppolitiker får i gåva av utländska regeringar, på sin lista över gåvor under 2019 noterat att flaskan – värd 5 800 dollar, motsvarande runt 50 000 svenska kronor – saknades.
