Townsend on Katrina Rove on Dubai Ports Deal The Alternative Energy Prez Bush Wants Spying Legal Patriot Act Extension


Ports and a Storm

Yesterday's meeting of the Senate Armed Services Committee [about the Dubai Ports World deal] felt like some weird role-reversal dream.

There was Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.), attacking Bush administration officials for being soft on terrorism and "outsourcing our national security."

There was Gordon England, President Bush's deputy defense secretary, pleading with Democrats that "it is very important that we strengthen the bonds of friendship and security with our friends and allies around the world."

...Yesterday, it emerged in the committee hearing that the administration may have skirted the law by not granting a 45-day review of the Dubai ports deal. The law says such a review is mandatory if a sale to a state-owned company "could affect the national security of the United States" -- a standard the administration seemed to acknowledge the deal met because it required special safeguards.

Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.), who wrote the 1992 law, demanded to know "why that investigation was not carried out."
