Kiss Of Death On Dubai Deal
President Bush is taking a battering from fellow Republicans ... over the administration's support for a decision that gives an Arab company control of some commercial operations at six major seaports ... but he got a boost Monday from an unlikely source, frequent critic and former president Jimmy Carter, who downplayed fears that the deal poses a risk.That from the man who let the Panama Canal go, opening the door to China's operation of port facilities at both the Atlantic and Pacific.
''The overall threat to the United States and security, I don't think it exists,'' Carter said on CNN's The Situation Room. "I'm sure the president's done a good job with his subordinates to make sure this is not a threat.'' (source)
