Media Treadmill Blackout On Key Issues Of Port Story
Sweetheart deals and government links swept under the rug


Alex Jones & Paul Joseph Watson/Prison Planet.com | February 28 2006

The mainstream media treadmill has re-employed its familiar tactic of moving attention away from the cornerstone smoking guns that make the port story important and those that would implicate former administration officials and the White House itself in criminal activities.

We are now learning that it is not 6, 12, 18 or 21, it is more than 21 port complexes that in American and 10 to 15 in Canada that are going to be handed over to Dubai Ports World. The majority of the major port systems in the United States and North America will be sold off.

Segments of the controlled left have tried to make the debate about racism. It doesn't matter which country is handed the ports, as the British already owned the ports to begin with. The supposed terrorism threat being used to try and block the deal is a red herring.

We should oppose the port deal simply because selling off key infrastructure is a threat to the sovereignty of the United States.

We should also oppose the deal because former Treasury Secretary Snow and the Bush administration have made millions of dollars personally and billions of dollars for their respective companies in these sales.

The individual named by the White House to run security for all major US ports under Maritime Administration, David Sanborn (pictured above), is the current number two man at Dubai Ports World and head of their European and Latin American operations.

So when Neo-Cons defend Bush by saying that UAE won't be running security at the ports involved in the deal, they are deliberately ignoring the fact that DP World's number two is already in charge of all major US ports by appointment of Bush.

The New York Daily News pointed out Snow's (pictured below) connection to the sweetheart deal in pointing out that Snow headed, "the federal panel that signed off on the $6.8 billion sale of an English company to government-owned Dubai Ports World - giving it control of Manhattan's cruise ship terminal and Newark's container port.

"Snow was chairman of the CSX rail firm that sold its own international port operations to DP World for $1.15 billion in 2004, the year after Snow left for President Bush's cabinet."

The deal has already violated federal law in its failure to undergo a 45 day review procedure. That alone should bring criminal charges of espionage for those involved who profited from breaking federal law.

These issues take precedence over national security issues. The UAE is a willing stooge in the manufactured war on terror. The media has once again artificially framed the debate and shifted attention away from the key factors in this story.
