What Is Wrong With People?!

While the press continues to cry about not being notified about Cheney's hunting accident sooner, Arab/Islamic countries are going to take over our ports.

The Bush administration yesterday failed to quell the swelling tide of opposition to the deal that would give a company owned by the government of Dubai in the United Arab Emirates control over six American ports.

The board of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey promptly made public their demand to the federal government for information and documents related to the decision in preparation for its own review of the implications of the deal next week.

Why is this even an issue? Here's the fact: the source of terrorism is in the middle east, and Islam. So please tell me: what sense it makes to give away the sovereignty of our ports (let alone to an Arab/Islamic nation)? If the MSM really wants a scandal, they should be talking about this. Of course, since the controversy comes from protesting the actions regarding Middle Eastern Muslims, it's kind of catch-22 for them. I'm not happy with Bush on this one, and he had better slap this proposal down if he wants me to take him seriously on domestic national security--though I really haven't for some time now with the whole Mexico border issue.

Michelle Malkin has a great roundup on this REAL issue we should be reading about.
