Top brass birthday bash

On November 9, over 100 friends and family gathered at the residence of Kuwaiti Ambassador Salem Al-Sabah and his wife Rima to celebrate Marine Corps General Peter Pace’s 60th birthday and his swearing-in as Chief of Staff of the U.S. Armed Forces six weeks previously. What Pace assumed would be a small affair turned out to be a grand tribute to his 38 years in the Corps. Supreme Court justices, CEO’s, cabinet secretaries, media celebrities, and members of Congress from both sides of the aisle joined in the fun.

Presidential guru Karl Rove, intelligence czar John Negroponte, Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Anthony Kennedy, Diane Williams, Leo and Grega Daly, Gen. Joe Ralston, Rep. John Dingell, and Pace’s predecessor, Gen. Richard Myers, enjoyed the meal as well as the floorshow, when a Middle Eastern dancer wove in between tables hypnotizing them with her savvy moves.

While waiting in the valet line, guests were overheard chuckling at the irony of an exotic dancer covering Rove and Negraponte with her veil.
