Bye, Bye Dubai

The spineless Congress finally did something brave; it told the Dubai company that stood poised to assume management of cargo traffic at 6 US ports to take a hike--in the name of national security. People are being slaughtered daily in Iraq and Afghanistan, where the Taliban is resurgent and tortured in those and other countries. The Bushies flaunt the laws of the land against spying on Americans and daily rub their perfidious incompetence in everyone's face, knowing they face no consequence. Congress can't be bothered with that--or it surrenders by making legal the illegal-- but it will leap at the opportunity to convert xenophobia and bigotry into policy. Score one for courage.
