Eat At Joes

Just a regular Joe who is angry that the USA, the country he loves, is being corrupted and damaged from within and trying to tell his fellow Americans the other half of the story that they don’t get on the TV News.

Bush Broke Law Giving United Arab Emirates Our Ports

The Bush Administration broke the law by approving the turning over of our ports to a United Arab Emirates company. The law requires a mandatory 45 day investigation that the Bush Administration didn't bother doing:

From Talking Points Memo:


The NY Times reported today that the law governing this sort of deal, when "the acquiring company is controlled by or acting on behalf of a foreign government," requires a "mandatory," 45-day investigation. That was never done, and what's more, "Administration officials ... could not say why a 45-day investigation did not occur."

But here's the thing: it's not too late. The President can still order the investigation. And Sens. Schumer (D-NY) and Clinton (D-NY), along with Mayor Bloomberg, have asked for it.

What? George Bush is ignoring the law and is breaking it just because he can? I’m shocked! Shocked I tell you! By the way that's Republican Mayor Bloomberg who is demanding the investigation.

It turns out that members of the Bush Administration have financial ties to the Arab firm getting our ports. Surprise surprise surprise! Bush says he didn’t know that it was an Arab firm owned by the UAE government before approving the deal, but he will use his first ever veto if Congress tries to block the deal. Don’t stand between a Texan and his graft.

Rumsfeld said that he didn’t know about the deal either. Problem is he was on the board that approved it UNANIMOUSLY! OOPS!

Rumsfeld also recently told the world that the military had stopped paying newspapers to plant stories only to have to admit yesterday that they had NOT actually stopped. DOUBLE OOPS!

Remember the movie Airplane when Lloyd Bridges says, “Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue.” That’s Rumbsfeld right now.

At least Cheney was drunk when he shot someone. What’s up with Rumsfeld?

Post number 401!
