Opposition grows to Dubai port acquisition

New York Sun reports that the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey is considering raising obstacles to the takeover of their port, while members of Congress are also raising concerns.

Frank Gaffney earlier pointed out in the Washington Times that the man in charge of the  government committee that apporved the sale used to work in a powerful position for the Dubai Ports company

Even the New York Times is aghast at the prospect of a United Arab Emirates company taking control of several of our major ports. I can't be sure if they get their marching orders from Schumer or vice— versa, but in any event it is a good way to embarrass Bush.

Of course, a rejection at this stage will ignite further anti—Americanism in the Arab and Muslim worlds. But can we afford to let control of several of our principal ports fall into hands whose loyalties are not necessarily to our security?
