Dubai is announcing sale of port interests in US

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer (via IRIS Blog) reports that Dubai is announcing their sale of the ports in the US within 4-6 months, but that they intend to keep running them "independently" in the interim.

From this, it's possible that they're hoping that the controversy will blow over by then, and that they won't have to sell, and are trying to use a stall tactic. One more reason why the public and Congress must keep paying attention to this case. As IRIS says:
Arab regimes have used this strategy many times. Recent examples include Iran bragging about dodging and stalling its way to nuclear capability and Syria's Assad stalling its way out of the pressure to step down after being caught red-handed assassinating Lebanon's Prime Minister. Abbas had been making renewed promises to dismantle Hamas before Hamas' landslide victory caused them to be forgotten.
So let's not be off our guard. The MSM is also at fault, because they usually tend to act oblivious to cases like these after awhile too, one more reason why we can't rely on them anymore.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
