"Wolf, this may be the straw that finally breaks the camel's back, this deal to sell control of six US ports to a company controlled by the United Arab Emirates. There are now actually Senators and Congressmen and Governors and Mayors telling the White House "you're not gonna do this." And it's about time. No one has said "no" to this administration on anything that matters in a very long time. Well this matters. It matters a lot. If this deal is allowed to go through, we deserve whatever we get.

A country with ties to terrorists will have a presence at six critical doorways to our country. And if anyone thinks that the terrorists, in time, won't figure out how to exploit that, then we're all done. Nothing's happened yet, mind you, but if our elected representatives don't do everything in their power to stop this thing, each of us should vow to work tirelessly to see that they are removed from public office. We're at a crossroads - which way will we choose?
Here's the question: What should be done to stop a deal that would allow an Arab company to run US Ports?

The Moderate Voice (http://www.themoderatevoice.com/posts/1140536451.shtml) has a nice round up on this story with many different reports and opinions included (http://www.themoderatevoice.com/posts/1140536451.shtml). TMV does a really great job putting these types of posts together.

Even Rumsfeld didn't know (http://thinkprogress.org/2006/02/21/rumsfeld-not-consulted/).

tbogg (http://tbogg.blogspot.com/2006/02/i-get-to-do-bleg-if-anybody-can-find.html)is asking: "If anybody can find a blog that supports the UAE/port debacle (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/11474440/), please leave a link in the comments."

I haven't seen Power Line comment on it one way or the other. I guess they still haven't received Karl Rove's fax yet.
