    Well, Singapore's Prime Minister is a good friend of Obama just like the Sultan of Brunei:

    PRESIDENT OBAMA: Well, it is a great pleasure for me to welcome my good friend, Prime Minister Lee, to the Oval Office. He and I have had interacted in a whole range of international forums, and not surprisingly, he has proven to be an outstanding partner for us on the international stage -- not surprising because Singapore and the United States have historically had an extraordinary relationship. Singapore is one of the most successful countries in the world.

    Yet another example of hypocritical Obama supporting the incarceration and execution of gays.
