More questions about the Dubai Ports World Deal

 While browsing through the sites I try to check in on at least weekly, I found the following:

An anonymous source has provided the Northeast Intelligence Network with a translated copy of a recovered Al Qaeda document from Afghanistan dated 14 May/June 2002. The text informs officials of the UAE that “we have infiltrated your security, censorship, and monetary agencies along with other agencies that should not be mentioned.”

In light of the current debacle with Dubai Ports World, and fears of security vulnerabilities at 21 American port facilities, this document is further evidence of the need for a full, no-stone-left-unturned review of the transaction and its implications.

The translated text of the entire message can be found at The Northeast Intelligence Network’s website.

While many categorize the expressed reactions from both sides of the aisle in this story as “knee-jerk” or “Islamophobia,” the possibilities brought to light by such documents as this one would lead me to agree that the US should proceed with caution in this matter.
