Can You Believe This? Part 2

It took the NYTimes 5 days to comment editorially on the stunning news that a Middle Eastern Arab company with ties to terrorists was put in charge of major US ports including NYCity.

The Fox News website reported on Feb. 12, 2006 that:

A company in the United Arab Emirates is poised to take over significant operations at six American ports as part of a corporate sale, leaving a country with ties to the Sept. 11 hijackers with influence over a maritime industry considered vulnerable to terrorism.

It was not until today that the NYTimes said editorially that it was The Wrong Way to Guard the Ports.

In my Feb. 12, 2006 post Can You Believe This? I suggested to President Bush (with empathy) that he was out of his mind for putting Middle Eastern Arabs with ties to terrorists in charge of our ports.

Maybe I should be writing the editorials for the NYTimes?
