And so on, and so on...posted by The Vidiot @ 2:18 PM Permalink I was wondering why he stated it like he did:
But they need to know that our government has looked at this issue and looked at it carefully.Because this:
President Bush was unaware of the pending sale of shipping operations at six major U.S. seaports to a state-owned business in the United Arab Emirates until the deal already had been approved by his administration, the White House said Wednesday.
tells us that he had nothing to do with the decision.
Not only that, the decision might be illegal because they didn't do a mandatory 45 day investigation.
And it gets worse: There is another connection to Dubai Ports World than just John Snow. Just last month, Bush appointed David Sanborn as head of the U.S. Maritime Administration. Where was Sanborn before his position at the U.S. Maritime Administration? He was Director of Operations for Europe and Latin America at, you guest it, Dubai Ports World.
In the immortal words of Jon Stewart: Waaaaaaaaaa???
