DPW to Sell US Interests in P&O

Senator John Warner announced on the Senate floor that Dubai Ports World will "transfer fully the operations of U.S. ports to a U.S. entity."

The AP and Reuters have early reports with limited details currently available. It appears that the six US ports involved in the purchase of P&O by DPW will be sold to an unnamed American company.

At this moment the press is eagerly awaiting a Democratic press conference to discuss the deal. The political fighting now appears ready to move from opposition to the deal to taking credit for what appears to be a solution. Or perhaps to opposition to foreign ownership of airlines.

This is not how one treats their friends. The UAE has been a solid ally in a hostile region to the US. The short term political interests by members of Congress from both parties raised above national security interests of the country is sickening.

Kind regards,
