An Outrageous Decision

No one who has the national security interests of Americans at heart can go along with the pernicious idea of having the American ports of New York, New Jersey, Baltimore and three others under the control of the United Arab Emirates.

The deal should be stopped, and now . . . And there should be some serious scrutiny of the U.S. Committee on Foreign Investment, the Treasury Department-dominated group that approved the purchase.

I can only assume that there is the possibility of using the situation to gather the "hold your friends close, hold your enemies closer" vein. Other than that, it's pretty unbelievable...

Good grief! What a stupid, stupid concept.

What if the Medellin cartel wanted to run our rehab centers? Or a North Korean firm won a bid to regulate our nuclear reactors? They could pay top dollar. Should we care?

I'm at a loss for words except to say, what a breathlessly stupid concept.

What next? Port of San Diego and Panama Canal controlled by the Chinese Communists?

Next to Jimmy Carter giving away the Panama Canal, no's even more stupid than that.
