"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Opinionnation Times - Feb 21, 2006 - Ports At Risk

Opinionnation Times: "Putting Our Ports At Risk"

You have got to agree that this contract is a bit on the strange side. There are opinions on this obviously from many sides, however, ultimately it's a bit risky regardless of how well vetted the company has been.

Like Opinionnation Times said, you might want to think twice is Jimmy Carter is on the administrations side of the argument, so no good can likely come of it.

Hey, I'm not saying this type of thing could never happen, but it is unlikely it is a good move. Forget the security side of it for a moment and consider that this would be a good example of not doing business with a business from a part of the world where their government is not truly doing enough against terrorists. How about saying "no frickin' way until you guys step up and do something about the scum in you midst?"

Again, I don't think it worth the risk going with a company from that part of the world, but if you are going to at least get some BIG consessions.
