Dp World is the same UAE government company that is planning to take over 21 of our ports. That's what makes these 2 tidbits very interesting.

This happens all the time with this administration. Halliburton gets contracts without having to bid. The lead prosecutor in the Abramoff case gets appointed by Bush to be a federal judge right after Abramoff makes a plea. Bush's "White House Counsel" gets nominated to the Supreme Court. And the list goes on.

Thus, I am not remotely surprised by this horsepoop.
