Ethnic profiling is fine as long as it comes from the left. Sacarborough should be ashamed of hisself...and thanks for posting.

It's called "hip ignorance."

I support President Bush on this.

The Dems for some reason feel free to attack the UAE, probably because this country is actually perceived as friendly to the US, on an official basis, at least. Also, it doesn't look as if the UAE is going to issue a fatwa against them which could end in that ugly beheading thing, so attacking the UAE is pretty safe.

I was getting fed up with Scarborough's Repub bashing and the final straw was letting O'Donnell back on his show. I refuse to watch him.

How are they going to craft blocking legislation--that everybody's running to get onboard--considering that all of America's major port cargo-transfer operations are foreign owned right now? Profiling Arabs? Profiling Muslims? This is going to be a lot more complicated than Congress thinks.

I wonder if AL Gore has made a statement about this yet! After his statement in Saudi Arabia, I wonder if he is against this!

Look, I don't like the sound of this arrangement. But hearing Boxer and Scarborough gush at each other almost makes me want to run out and support it.

It seems to me it's just a change in ownership.

I don't believe all the employees are going to be fired and replaced with islamofacists.

Racism is something which sneaks up on both parties. Coming from Boxer, however, it is especially galling.

I'm having trouble figuring out if the Dems think we are at war or not. Very confusing.

According to Reuters:

Some recent deals in the United States include:

February 2006: Shareholders of UK-based P&O, which operates six key ports in the United States, approve the sale of their company to state-owned Dubai Ports World for $6.8 billion. The Bush administration approves the sale after a classified review.

January 2006: Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal and Colony Capital agree to pay $3.9 billion for Canada's Fairmont Hotels & Resorts Inc., trumping an offer by billionaire investor Carl Icahn.

January 2006: United Arab Emirates-based media investment company Istithmar acquires 109 million shares, or 2.39% of Time Warner Inc. for $2 billion.

November 2005: Istithmar says it has bought New York property 230 Park Avenue for $705 million.

August 2005: Dubai's Dubal, owner and operator of the largest aluminum smelter in the Western world, says it will take a 25% stake in Canada's Global Alumina Corp.

January 2005: The government of Dubai buys a $1 billion stake in DaimlerChrysler AG, becoming the auto maker's third-largest shareholder. The purchase was made through the government's Dubai Holding company.

December 2004: State-owned Dubai Ports pays $1.15 billion for the global port assets of US-based CSX Corp., outbidding the world's two biggest container port operators.


This is very interesting to the reach of UAE.

for your consideration

Marwan AL-SHEHHI believed to be the hijacker who flew United Airlines Flight 175 into the South Tower on September, 11, 2001

--

came from the United Arab Emirates, where his father was an imam. Interviewed in the UAE, Royal Highness Sheikh Abdulla bin Zayed said of al-Shehhi, "He was a normal individual until he went to Germany. It seems when he went to Germany, he met these radical fanatics who have a very different understanding of Islam than we do."


alsoFayez Rashid Ahmed Hassan al Qadi Banihammad

---

2001

Banihammad used the controversial program Visa Express to gain entry into the country together with Saeed al-Ghamdi. Upon later review of his application, it was noticed that he hadn't listed an occupation or reason for visit, and when asked where he would be living in the country, simply wrote No. However, he still received his Visa.

Before the pair arrived in Orlando, Florida on June 27, 2001, Banihammad had opened a bank account in the UAE to which $30,000 was deposited by unknown parties only two days before his arrival. He opened another account with SunTrust Banks in Orlando several days after his arrival, becoming one of nine hijackers to open an account with the bank.

The 9/11 Commission noted: He appears to have played a unique role among the muscle hijackers because of his work with one of the plot's financial facilitators, Mustafa al Hawsawi. On July 18, Banihammad gave Mustafa power-of-attorney over his Dubai bank account, and Mustafa reportedly mailed him a VISA and bank card.

And yet not too long after 9-11 one dare not detain a young muslim-looking male out of fear of profiling, and they searched little old ladies, instead (me).

To explain in part her opposition to the UAE port deal, Barbara Boxer just declared on Scarborough Country:

Wow .. Scarborough's ratings must really be in the tank if he's falling into the arms of Bag Lady Boxer

I readily admit I don't like this ports deal .. I've made my feelings clear on this matter

But what I hate even more is a bleeping political set up that will endanger us even more

The first hint I got of this was yesterday when Chuck Schmucker had the nerve to say he TRUSTED Hallibuton .. which is a bold face lie

Tact on Gore's speech a few days again .. then Corzine saying he's going to file suit and Hellary's (Ms. Chinagate herself) ranting about foriegn investors

THIS SMELLS TO THE HIGH HEAVENS

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