Ports of a strange call

The President and the Ports

I have been some befuddled as to why Arab companies should be taking over the adminstration of Amerika's ports - especially given the supposed terrorist threats from that region. Mind you, with the likes of China buring up chunks of the industrail infrastructure too, it may be no surprise. That Bush has annouced he will veto any opposition to the moves that a financial agenda is at work here to the detriment of security.

The above link leads to today's editorial at the New York Times and is surprisingly cricital. It also reveals something I didn't know - namely that the ports in question are currently administered by British companies. Maybe this weird turn of events can be better seen as yet another snub to the UK by the Ape Emperor and his minions.
