    Jimmy Carter Back Ports Deal

    (from newsmax)
    The Bush administration's plan to turn over control of six major U.S. ports to a Dubai company suffered another blow on Monday, when former President Jimmy Carter endorsed the deal.

    "The overall threat to the United States and security, I don't think it's exists," Carter told CNN's Wolf Blitzer.

    Wow. After the current bumbling President endorsed a contract to put the security of six of our major ports under the control of a United Arab Emirates company, a former, more bumbling President has come out to defend the sale. While 99% of Americans are avidly against this sale, this statment should drive the other 1% over the edge.

    About the sale, President carter also said "I've been to Dubai, and I've seen the remarkable port facilities they have there, perhaps the best in the world." Although this is, obviously, meant to be an endorsement of the Dubai company (Dubai Ports), I don't particularly respect President Carter's opinion. His opinion of North Korea was, well, seemingly backwards. He referred to the capitol, Pyongyang, as a "bustling city", and claimed that the way the 'citizens packed the department stores reminded him of Walmart back in Americus Georgia'.

    The sale of the ports is a very critical issue in terms of national security. The sale of these ports would put the US in grave danger. The UAE was woven in with the Hijackers of 9/11; some were residents, some had bank accounts in Dubai. President Bush is failing on the borders, another source of potential terrorist threat, I sincerely hope that he takes this issue more seriously.

    Carter once again proves the adage "there's no fool like an old fool".
