The President was unaware of UAE deal

President Forest Gump keeps missing the boat. After defending the deal for outsourcing the management of US ports to a UAE company, uncluding his promise to veto any challanges to making the deal go through, now he "was unaware." Yeah, right.

President Bush was unaware of the pending sale of shipping operations at six major U.S. seaports to a state-owned business in the United Arab Emirates until the deal already had been approved by his administration, the White House said Wednesday.

Mr. President are you also NOT aware of our open borders, and the threat this poses to our national security. The President is not aware that he is unware.

Is it just me, or is there the distinct feeling that someones playing possum?

Case in point:

Let's say that there's only one American company with the know how and personnel and infrastructure to take over the ports. That company would be, por ejemplo, Halliburton.

Now, considering all the yappering about Halliburton! Halliburton! that Bush opponents have done, and nauseum, what is the President to do?

Why, toss in a worse case scenario thing: the UAE.

After al the uproar, said president says, OK, you all are right. It shouldnt go to the Saudis. But then, that only leaves halliburton. So my hands are tied.

this rings of Harriett Myers/Alito.
