Rift widens on whether port deal is a threat

Alright, time to comment on this clusterfuck.

Former U.S. intelligence officials disagreed Wednesday on whether a company with close ties to a Middle Eastern, Muslim government poses a security threat by running six U.S. seaports, reflecting a deepening divide over the issue between the White House and congressional leaders.

At the risk of sounding a bit bias let's look at this a little closer shall we?

February 26th 1993 - A bomb in the basement of the World Trade Center in New York is deteonated killing 6 Americans and injuring over 1000. Who did this? Why, Islamist militants of course.

September 11th 2001 - Four planes are hijacked in the morning, two are slammed into the two towers of the World Trade Center in New York, one is slammed into the Pentagon in Washington DC and one crashes into a field in rural PA. Was this act prupertrated by the KGB? Nope. Islamist militants.

March 11th 2004 - A series of coordinated bombs placed on commuter trains kills 192 people and injures over 2000. Hey look, Islamist militants again.

July 7th 2005 - London is attacked by four suicide bombers. Three bombs are exploded in the underground train system, a fourth on a bus. 56 are killed, about 700 injured. Say it with me now, Islamist militants did it.

So, should the US hand control of it's seaports over to a Muslim country? Sure why not? I see no problem in this. All red tape and politics aside, I'm moving to Greenland.
