Carol Platt Liebau: Please Rethink It!

Please Rethink It!

Update: It's appalling that Republicans are letting Democrats like Hillary Clinton take the lead on addressing this issue.

Here is more from The Washington Times about the UAE firm acquiring six big American ports. Key paragraph:

The deadlock cinch here is that Dubai Ports World doesn't even have to be a willing collaborator to be a danger to the United States. All other things being equal, an Arabic company is easier for terrorists to penetrate than a British or American firm. In the least nefarious of scenarios, Dubai Ports World might not even know what happened until after some future attack. That would be possible even if the dockworkers are the same and even if most of the local management is exactly the same.

This is the MOST insane idea broached in my memory.

This forever CONDEMNS AND BLASTS this administration's stewardship of our national security.

I feel sick to my stomach.

Maybe I've overslept and it was just a dream. Now pinch me and tell me that Kerry isn't in the White House!

I don't think this one will make it. The hue and cry is out, and I expect some action to turn this one back. The Dems are strangely silent here.
