CHARLOTTE, N.C. Representative Sue Myrick is leaving no doubt about how she feels about the deal to sell six major U-S seaports to a state-owned business in the United Arab Emirates.
In a one-sentence letter to President Bush, Myrick writes, "In regards to selling American ports to the United Arab Emirates, not just NO - but HELL NO!"
Another Email to Cafferty from Republican: His actions seem to mimic those of a "Manchurian Candidate"-type syndrome, in his bias toward aiding foreign big business and royal families. It is almost treasonous... Click here for more reactions from the Republican base. UPDATE:
Dana seems to think that the fact that a bunch of red-necks are all riled up mean that this is all about racism. Let is be clear. This is not about an "Arab company". The following is from Eschaton: ...this is a company owned and controlled by the hereditary oligarchy of the UAE, many of whom, apparently, were Bin Laden's pals.
The Central Intelligence Agency did not target Al Qaeda chief Osama bin laden once as he had the royal family of the United Arab Emirates with him in Afghanistan, the agency's director, George Tenet, told the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks on the United States on Thursday.
Had the CIA targeted bin Laden, half the royal family would have been wiped out as well, he said.
Handing over the ports to Bin Laden's pals is just a bad idea.
