Documents Show Secret Deal on Ports Sale

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Under a secretive agreement with the Bush administration, a company in the United Arab Emirates promised to cooperate with U.S. investigations as a condition of its takeover of operations at six major American ports, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press. ...[T]he administration chose not to require state-owned Dubai Ports World to keep copies of its business records on U.S. soil, where they would be subject to orders by American courts."MORE >>>
Gee, I wonder why George Washington didn't think of that? If he'd sold our ports to the British, it woulda made 'em play nice and forget the war.

Seriously, I'm thinking Morgaine at The-Goddess might be right: the Bush Crime Family may be secretly and literally selling America to one of the fabulously wealthy Middle Eastern monarchs. Can you think of a better explanation for the AP story above?
