The ports management issue
may be what decides what the pundits of our time are really worth.Michelle Malkin
offers her typical hateful xenophobia. Sean Hannity sounds like a fool because the facts of the matter aren't getting to him. Joseph Farah
is one. Of all the major conservative pundits, only Rush Limbaugh
has offered intelligent and factual analysis, emphasizing that Dubai Ports World
is only assuming ownership of the firm managing 6 US ports. Nothing else will change. US law still applies, most of the American empoyees will still be doing the same jobs and DPW will not in fact be running port security, contrary to the willful disinformation of Neal Boortz
. I have to agree that I think some of this reaction is in fact racist
So they say the UAE is "connected" to al-Qaeda because of some money transfers. By that reckoning, so is the United States. The UAE also has 53,000 millionaires in a small place so they're obviously pro-business and committed to a better world. It's what the other Arab nations could be.
In some cases I expect dishonesty and stupidity from liberal pundits but I don't like it from anybody. I can be wrong but I won't lie about anything. I hope thinking people will remember who says what when this time.
