REPRESENTATIVES NEED BIPARTISAN RESPONSE TO BLOCK SALE

To All,



If the turn over of 6 of our ports was not bad enough it now has been disclosed that



A) The UAE Company would also gain control of two other ports in Texas. These ports in Beaumont and Corpus Christi currently manage about 40% of the cargo for Operation Iraqi Freedom. In doing so we are now giving control of key military equipment to a country that has acted as a key transfer point for illegal shipments to Iran, North Korea and Libya.

B) Two members of the Administration have had dealings in the past with this company. Treasury Secretary John Snow, who signed off on this deal, sold his port operations to DP World when he was chairman of CSX rail. This occurred after he had become Treasury Secretary. Also David Sanborn who heads the US Maritime Administration is also in charge of DP World’s European and Latin American Operations.

C) Transcripts from the Moussaoui trial clearly indicate that funds were laundered through UAE banks into accounts of terrorists who took part in the 9/11 attacks.





We need to have our representatives stand up and stop this travesty from moving forward. We cannot allow them to downplay the significance of the three items above. Have we learned nothing from 9/11. We cannot allow this to happen. We are spending billions of dollars and watching Americans die every day in Iraq to support the spread of Democracy and here we are giving away the keys to the ports to a country that has helped finance the greatest attack on Democracy in history. Let’s make sure that they stand up to the president and let him know that there will be a bipartisan effort to override any veto. This should not be a political decision it should be a decision based on what is right for America.
