W puts national security at risk

According to Stephanie Miller this morning:
  • W is going to ram through the proposed sale of 6 US ports to a company owned by the United Arab Emirates government. This is despite the fact that UAE provided two of the 9/11 hijackers and much of the financing, as well as supporting Osama bin Laden. The blogosphere is up in arms over this - and so are lawmakers from BOTH parties.
  • W has also fired badly needed Arabic and other language translators in the military, just because they were gay.
Neither development makes America any safer. If anyone is still deluded about W being the "security President," that is a sorry, and a DANGEROUS, delusion. Maybe the only thing W makes people secure about would be that he is the latest Christian prophet, and can perhaps deliver believers to heaven while the rest of us die in the Armageddon.
