    Talking Bush gives control of 6 major US ports to Arab country steeped in terrorism

    Thinkprogress.com

    The Bush administration has outsourced the operation of six of the nations largest ports to a company owned by the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a country with troubling ties to international terrorism. The $6.8 billion sale would mean that the state-controlled Dubai Ports World would control the ports of New York, New Jersey, Baltimore, New Orleans, Miami and Philadelphia.

    Some facts about the UAE:

    The UAE was one of three countries in the world to recognize the Taliban as the legitimate government of Afghanistan.

    The UAE has been a key transfer point for illegal shipments of nuclear components to Iran, North Korea and Lybia.

    According to the FBI, money was transferred to the 9/11 hijackers through the UAE banking system.

    After 9/11, the Treasury Department reported that the UAE was not cooperating in efforts to track down Osama Bin Ladens bank accounts.
    Seirously, are they asking for it?

    Well, it might be a way for Bush to stay in power. I mean, another terrorist attack then played up to the fear hilt by the Bushies might have everyone so cowed and shaken that they'll agree to a third 'president for life' term.

    I've read that the nation's ports are so poorly defended that one
    freighter with a nuke aboard it could incinerate a major American
    city like San Fran or New York in the time it takes to say, "Allahu Ackbar!"
    So unless the UAE has been the subject of regime change and is
    now a puppet state of the US, I'd say they're in great danger.
