According to terpfen, whom I think knowledgeable and trustworthy:


"The ports will continue to be administrated by the British who are there now, and operations will be carried out by Customs, DHS, and the Coast Guard, American citizens all, and operating under US federal law and union rules."

You know what also bugs me

This morning on Fox & Friends they kept commenting on how they rec'd an email from the Company President on this port deal .. he was upset about something FNC reported .. and E.D. kept saying they invited him on their show to discuss it and he refused saying something to the effect that FNC lies

What an odd things to say in an email

Liberty Lee called into Mark Levin's show today...he works in the ports doing something...and he was trying to explain to Mark how everything that is done is strictly scrutinized by Homeland Security...and a lot of other reassuring things..

but, Mark wasn't buying...

Thank you for the kind words. I'm just forwarding what I've learned from others on the board.

You know what's really upsetting me? That the administration didn't seem to know how badly this would go over, didn't prepare the public or explain it well, letting the most radical leftists get to the right of George W. Bush (unbelievable) AND has the added disadvantage of making the very Arabs we already don't trust even more angry with us listening to the arguments against this.

Honest to Pete. It couldn't have been handled worse politically.

I apologize for the posting wherein I neglected to ping you and give you your due credit. I had cut and pasted your comment and went back to get your name correctly, and the thing posted. I corrected my error in the very next post.

That's fine. Knowledge ain't copyrighted, and if it were, I'm not the RIAA. :)

It certainly could've been explained better. Seems like a purposeful highlighting to discredit the administration (surprise, surprise).

Love the American Flag with the rainbow on your homepage. Hope you don't mind if I borrow it.

I think for now I'm going to take a step back and see how this plays out. I'm so confused by the whole thing I'm not thinking straight.

Yeah, and IRA terrorists come from Ireland, so does that mean she wants to cancel the St. Patricks Day parade too?

Profiling Arabs? Profiling Muslims? This is going to be a lot more complicated than Congress thinks.

Yup and right now there's a whole lot of big-mouths in congress who are just starting to figure it out. McCain is a big mouth, but he's not a stupid big mouth. He's already figured it out. Hillary and Schumer are big mouths, but they're stupid and now they've stuck their feet into it.

IMO ... These bleeping morons are trying to stir up riots here in America

No, they're rewriting history, and they're all, by appearances on the media outlets, running for re-election. National security hasn't been one of the left's strongest selling points since 9/11.

The media is just helping them apply their masks so that more people will be fooled into voting for 'em.

Last time around they were running on the phony notion they loved the military while trying to obfuscate their stance on the GWOT. This time around, it appears they are going to run on this phony notion, they CARE and are CONCERNED about NATIONAL SECURITY.

They don't give a rip about national security. Not now, not ever.

The stories on this port sale are incredulous. Lacking facts and full of alarmist goobledygook.

And now they are the ones screaming for profiling

Right. After screaming at Bush NOT to profile. Can't you see a trend here? They've been at odds with the American people, they're re-inventing themselves.

I don't think this trend will last long after the elections are over. They'll go back to their hate-America first Bush-bashing festival.

I agree, the breadth of Dimocrat opposition to this proposal almost makes me want to support it.I was a foreign policy major in college and near as I can remember the UAE has always been an ally of the US. My first reaction was that they are in a better position to monitor these ports than the US or British. They aren't hamstrung my the ACLUnatics or our seditious partisan congress.

I also find it odd that our ports haven't already been breached. It seems like such an obvious point of entry. Maybe not as easy, or practical, as it seems. At any rate, near as I can recall UAE were our friends. It didn't raise the same alarm bells with me and with the Dims flipping out that almost affirms my initial reaction. If nothing else it's beautiful to see their racism and hypocrisy. Definately worth the price of admission.
