Dubai Ports participating in U.S. security plan
Remember the quiet discussion we all had when Dubai Ports World was going to operate our ports? Well guess what: They're baaaaaaack!
The Fox In Charge Of The Hen House
WASHINGTON - Dubai Ports World, the Arab-owned firm whose purchase of American port facilities caused a U.S. political uproar, will join a program aimed at stopping nuclear weapons being smuggled into the United States, sources familiar with the agreement said on Thursday.
The program would involve screening U.S.-bound cargo for radiation at more than half a dozen ports including in Britain, Honduras, Oman and South Korea, sources said.
Dubai Ports World is among several international shipping and port operators chosen for the screening program mandated by the Safe Accountability for Every Port Act of 2006, legislation that resulted from the Dubai Ports controversy.
Do you trust them to properly screen cargo bond for the U.S.? I don't!
