MSM Tries To Politicize Port Deal
One "connection" is particularly dubious -- Commerce Sec. John Snow's former company was sold to DPW one year after his departure. The other, involving Bush's recent appointment to the top maritime position, is more direct -- he's a former DPW employee -- but the Merc News is barking up the wrong tree here.
Politicizing this story takes the focus off where it should be: national security. The story is whether there's a connection between DPW, its home country, the United Arab Emirates, and terror. We know UAE was home to two 9/11 terrorists, so it's worth investigating.
If the MercNews is going to growl about cronyism and corruption, give us connections thicker than gossamer. Show us your concern is for security, not for Bush-bashing.
Still, this deal stinks so bad that if Bush-bashing helps sink it, so be it.
