Maybe We Can Hire Osama To Take Over Lawn Care At The White House
Chertoff defends the genius move of letting a United Arab Emirates-owned business take over operations at six U.S. ports:

“We make sure there are assurances in place, in general, sufficient to satisfy us that the deal is appropriate from a national security standpoint,” Chertoff said on ABC’s “This Week.”

And your assurances carry soooo much weight with us after Katrina!

Chertoff said Dubai Ports World should not be excluded automatically from such a deal because it is based in the UAE.

Critics have cited the UAE’s history as an operational and financial base for the hijackers who carried out the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

In addition, they contend the UAE was an important transfer point for shipments of smuggled nuclear components sent to Iran, North Korea and Libya by a Pakistani scientist.

DP World has said it intends to “maintain and, where appropriate, enhance current security arrangements.” The UAE’s foreign minister has described his country as an important U.S. ally in fighting terrorism.

Wise...since that tends to be better for business than proclaiming it the best place for secretly transferring your WMD components or basing your terrorist operations.
