I Told You
Keep watching gang. It's jelling as I type.
WASHINGTON - A United Arab Emirates-based company on Sunday offered to submit to a broader U.S. review of the security risks from its deal to take over major operations at six American ports.

Seeking to avert a showdown between President Bush and Congress, DP World also promised to create an American subsidiary that would function independently of executives in Dubai.

During the Bush administration’s 45-day investigation, DP World said a London-based executive who is a British citizen would have authority over the company’s operations at ports in New York, New Jersey, Baltimore, New Orleans, Miami and Philadelphia.

Also, an American citizen would serve as the chief security officer during this period, the company said.
Before long, there'll be a GOP/White House/Dubai agreement. The next step will be the DINO's coming out in favor, then the deal will pass with some type of pretty window dressing, and this issue will be dead.

As I've said, if there's to be a GOP rebellion against the Bush, (and that's a BIG if), it won't come until after the midterms. And frankly, the way McCain is kissing Bush's bee-hind, I suspect there won't even be a rebellion. The only exception to that will be if the Republicans absolutely get their clock's cleaned in the midterms.
