    President Bush was unaware of the pending sale of shipping operations at six major U.S. seaports to a state-owned business in the United Arab Emirates until the deal already had been approved by his administration, the White House said Wednesday.

    Bush on Tuesday brushed aside objections by leaders in the Senate and House that the $6.8 billion sale could raise risks of terrorism at American ports. In a forceful defense of his administration’s earlier approval of the deal, he pledged to veto any bill from Congress that would block the sale of a British company to the Arab firm.

    That is correct. The president is not a member of CFIUS:

    www.treas.gov/offices/international-affairs/exon-florio

    "In 1993, in response to a sense of Congress resolution, CFIUS membership was expanded by Executive Order 12860 to include the Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs and the Assistant to the President for Economic Policy. In February 2003, the Department of Homeland Security was added to CFIUS. This brought the membership of CFIUS to twelve under the chairmanship of the Secretary of Treasury. The other members are the Secretaries of State, Defense, and Commerce, the Attorney General, the Director of the Office of Management and Budget, the U.S. Trade Representative, and the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers."

    Bush is unaware of everything except stuff that he is ordered to be aware of.

    There is no way that I believe the president didn't know about it...neither would I ever support the CP.

    So, Joseph, are you saying that Bush's staff lied when they said that he didn't know?

    I don't believe Bush was unaware either. If anyone is saying that, then I believe they are lying, it wouldn't be the first time this administration has lied to the American public.

    Bush is fighting too hard to push this through to not have known about it, He is the one who introduced MEFTA back in 2003, I think this is just part of his MEFTA plan.

    JohnV, the CP is not trying to bring about a theocracy!

    Bush unaware...that says it all the most incurious President of all time ..going with the gut...no wisdom in that...the bible promises

    "the beginning of wisdom is.....acquire wisdom"


    bush is fundamentally lazy and has no intention in being curious what so ever about wisdom or pursuing it.

    KenH,
    Yes, without a doubt in my mind, someone is lying in the Bush administration about the subject, or if he really was unaware, he has no business being President. Either way, its a sad situation. I voted for him both times, but never would again if he could run.

    John, if you will read the US Constitution's platfrom, it basically says they support a strict interpretation of the Constitution, and since it guarantees freedom of worship, how would that be a theocracy?

    The time has come for Americans to get out of the two party rut that keeps these entrenched leeches in power and elect leadership that really cares about the people.

    Shouldn't the Department of Homeland Security know about these type of deals before they are made??

    Chertoff unaware of ports deal until after OK

    Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff was not aware a Dubai-owned company was seeking to operate terminals in six U.S. ports and that his agency was leading the review until after the deal's approval, an administration official said yesterday.

    Mr. Chertoff's spokesman, Russ Knocke, told The Washington Times the issue rose no higher than the department's assistant secretary for policy, Stewart Baker.

    One would think Homeland Security would know and be actively involved, especially since some people on this board have assured us there is no threat to our national security because the government will be actively involved. Well, they're off to a great start, I must say. :rolleyes:

    Absolutely.

    This is correct. We would have a strict constitutional government totally void of any of those religious principals taught by Jesus in the parable of the good Samaritan. We would all be for number one and to heck with the rest of the world...which is why I will never vote for the CP.

    Yes. The idea that the president of the United States doesn't know what is going on with port security on an issue as serious as who is going to oversee it is ludicrous.

    DP World is not going to be overseeing port security. That is still the job of Customs, Homeland Security, and the Coast Guard.

    I figure the port deal is just another test of the public private partnerships being used (Johnv touched on it earlier) to turn over American infrastructure to foriegners that have the money to buy it, let's face it government is broke and looking to prolong the illusion of prosperity and make a quick killing in the meantime.

    Besides that it could be another fine example of a distraction/misdirection or even further conditioning (sales pitch) on behalf of the corporations. These globalists can maniplulate us as easily as Pavlov trained his dogs.

    What would you say how would you react if the out come of this whole affair was the mass acceptance of RFID tracking chips in everything imported exported and sold everywhere in everything you buy or wear, your food, everything? And setting up the machanics of a future total control grid.

    They want to sell them to us real bad they've
    invested billions they're already setting on the shelves now, and we are being reluctant.

    We'll see. Just a thought. Time will tell. [​IMG]

    Dissecting the globalists propaganda by looking at their...

    Problem Reaction Solution in reverse.

    The globalists have a solution that the people are leary of and are reluctant to accept. This is their solution at this point in the ongoing conditioning process being worked on us everyday. Think Pavlov's dogs.

    The reaction is being engineered by this deal and border security which is the biggest news being allowed out for mass consumption by their controlled media at this time. The intent is to get a reaction of fear and uncertainty in our port and border security setting up and conditioning the people to accept their solution that they have already settled on. As soon as the desired reaction is achieved...

    It will then be presented and sold as any product is by touting it's benefits "selling the sizzle" as badly needed for security from their own manufactured blood thirsty terrorists, it will be sold as the only sure way to achieve real security, as a reasonable amount of liberty to surrender in light of their own manufactured terrorist threat and very convenient and worth the added cost of all products to the taxpayers.

    As always the lead up mind conditioning will seem reasonable it's only alittle freedom or privacy or incovenience after all. The conditioning to accept RFID tracking chips with a limited scanning range, a few inches from the reader has already been in progress for a good while now leading up to the real solution that they already had in mind all the time.

    After all if we don't accept their solution, they may lose their shirts if we do not consent to massive taxpayer funding of one of their pet projects.

    They created the problem in the first place through the massive coverage of this story by their controlled media when they could have just as easily ignored it all together like they have been ignoring the violence on our southern border for so long.

    In the end we will be conditioned to eagerly accept their ultimate solution A TOTAL SURVEILLANCE SOCIETY.
