Guess who leaked the DP World Email?
Chickenhawk Express ^ | 3/19/06 | Chickenhawk Express

Posted on 03/19/2006 5:31:29 PM PST by Chickenhawk Warmonger

This whole situation with P & O, DP World and Eller & Co is just so bizarre. More twists and turns than a pretzel factory... Found this article, "Dubai accused of lying on ports", buried deep in Internet search land.

Remember the email that was "leaked" to the media that implied that DP World was not going to sell its US assets? Guess who the leaker was? (no it wasn't Sen. Rockefeller)... None other than Eller & Co's own lawyer, Michael Kreitzer. Kreitzer said "we're making this public because we think Congress should do what it planned last week - to pass a bill to specifically disavow the Dubai company from owning a US port operation."

This really takes the cake. Here is the company that went on a massive propaganda campaign against the Dubai firm and literally slandered the company with its hate speech. Then it turns out that Eller & Co had an ax to grind with P&O and recruited Schumer to play lead puppeteer in the Congress. Now Eller & Co is considering an offer to buy out operations from DP World in Miami and possibly at other ports. I am no lawyer but this has to be a crime...

Meanwhile, SSA Marine in Seattle, the largest US based port operator, had been planning to accept DP World as its joint-venture partner at ports in Philly, Wilmington Delaware and Camden NJ. SSA was a partner in those ports with P&O. The VP of SSA, Bob Watters, saw "no security issues in having DP World as its partner at the three East Coast ports." Watters also said "All the same people were going to be in place to run the business, so we had no concerns about security."

Now keep in mind this is the same kind of deal that Eller & Co were going to have with DP World in Miami. SSA had no issue with security, no fears of losing customers because DP World was an Arab company or any of the other excuses that Eller & Co with cohort Schumer spewed all over the airwaves. Imagine that - Eller & Co and Chucky were making it all up...

Port facility operators have a major security responsibility, and one that could be exploited by terrorists if they infiltrate the company, said Joe Muldoon III. Muldoon is an attorney representing Eller & Co., a port facility operator in Florida partnered with M&O in Miami. Eller opposes the Dubai takeover for security reasons.

"The Coast Guard oversees security, and they have the authority to inspect containers if they want and they can look at manifests, but they are really dependent on facility operators to carry out security issues," Muldoon said.

The Marine Transportation Security Act of 2002 requires vessels and port facilities to conduct vulnerability assessments and develop security plans including passenger, vehicle and baggage screening procedures; security patrols; establishing restricted areas; personnel identification procedures; access control measures; and/or installation of surveillance equipment.

Under the same law, port facility operators may have access to Coast Guard security incident response plans -- that is, they would know how the Coast Guard plans to counter and respond to terrorist attacks.

"The concern is that the UAE may be our friend now ... but who's to say that couldn't change, or they couldn't be infiltrated. Iran was our big buddy," said Muldoon.

The sale of the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Co. to Dubai Ports World was nearly complete in January, when a lobbyist for a small Florida shipping company launched a long-shot bid to derail the deal. The Florida company was concerned about the sale for business reasons unrelated to security. The lobbyist, Joe Muldoon III, put together a white paper arguing that the deal could compromise U.S. security, then started working the halls of Congress. Mr. Schumer was an obvious choice for Mr. Muldoon. The Senator has been demanding more money for port security for years, and the deal would affect Mr. Schumer’s home territory. In late January, Mr. Muldoon gave a Schumer aide, Josh Vlasto, a copy of his white paper. “I have to say, I didn’t even ask them to go public on this,” Mr. Muldoon said, adding that he still hasn’t actually spoken to Mr. Schumer. There really was no need to ask.

This sounds a lot like what Abramoff has been accused of in the New American, using congress-critters to force issues.

This article should be forwarded to someone 'honest' on

the ethics committee if that someone exists (which takes ALL the slimocrats out of the picture)and let them know the truth is now out inthe open and being told to anyone who will listen and we're not going to 'shut-up', also the general public are demanding investigations into everyone with a 'D' after their name.

He** the slimocrats spend enough of our taxpayers money

on stupid worthless investigations of those on the right

lets spend a bit more on something that makes sense.

Lately I feel as though I'm struggling for breath in a

cess-pool.

What happened to 'Honour, Pride, and Truth'?

Is this the fault of the Clinton years and the level they

dragged us down too or is it because of the computer age

that we can now find out what the government always been

up too?

Oh Man! And the anti-DPworlders here castigated those who dared question this whole deal because it was being heralded by Schumer and Clinton.

I've looked for links between Eller and DNC candidates as well as Kreitzer's firm but have so far, not been able to find them. I'll keep digging when I have time.

Guarantee there's a connection somewhere....

Excellent work! I knew something was very wrong when I saw Schumer hyperventilating all over a microphone about the "ports deal." He is first, last and always a scumbag. How could anybody with an ounce of sense support something he is pushing without checking it out? Incomprehensible!

Inconceivable!!!

I fear darker forces are afoot than mere unappeaseability (is that a word?)

I would put it to you that there are some on this site who are against any coöperation with anyone in the Middle East, but not because of "racism": they agree with Ahmadinejad that the time of the Apocalypse is nigh, and they want it to happen just as soon as possible.
