  •  So, Coast Guard and DHS are concerned (none)
    But Chimpy and his handlers says everything is just peechy keen and A-OK.


    I am confused.

    Is someone not telling me the truth?

    I did not receive $ from Ketchum, U.S. Department of Ed or HHS to write this---though I wish I had.

    •  Negroponte SHOT THIS DEAL IN THE FACE (none)
      Reviews by U.S. intelligence agencies supported Dubai Ports World's purchase of the British company running terminals at six American seaports, and the assessments were made available to the Treasury Department-run interagency committee that approved the deal, according to senior administration officials.
      The intelligence studies were coordinated by the Intelligence Community Acquisition Risk Center, a new organization under the office of the Director of National Intelligence John D. Negroponte, said one official. The center normally does broad threat analyses of foreign commercial entities that seek to do business with U.S. intelligence agencies.

      The Homeland Security Department objected at first to a United Arab Emirates company's taking over significant operations at six U.S. ports.....

      President Bush, Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld and even Treasury Secretary John Snow, who oversees the government committee that approved the deal, all say they did not know about the purchase until after it was completed. The work was done mostly by assistant secretaries.


      An election does not make a democracy.

      •  The Same Intelligent Intelligence, huh (none)
        You know, the intelligence that made WMD claims.  The same intelligence that reclassified documents circa 1950's that pertained to NSA.

        And we're still expected to believe what they say.
