GOP Governors Threaten to Block Port Deal - Yahoo! News

GOP Governors Threaten to Block Port Deal - Yahoo! News: "Two Republican governors are threatening legal action to block an Arab company from taking over operations in major U.S. ports and some GOP lawmakers say the deal should be closely examined.

In the uneasy climate after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the Bush administration decision to allow the transaction is threatening to develop a major political headache for the White House.

New York Gov. George Pataki and Maryland Gov. Robert Ehrlich on Monday voiced doubts about the acquisition of a British company that has been running six U.S. ports by Dubai Ports World, a state-owned business in the United Arab Emirates."

Glad some one is keeping their head on straight. Homeland security sure isn't.

Acctually, all the port company is handleing is the containter terminals, not the personal transfer points.
