Congress Declares War on Ports Deal
Posted on Mar 8, 2006
The House committee votes 62-2 to block the White House from allowing the UAE to acquire six major U.S. ports.
At the same time, however, Senate Republicans handed the president a victory by approving a plan to allow Bush to spy without warrants.
The New York Times says “rebellion” is in the air, but that’s mostly because of the ports. The spying program, although under some Senate control, is basically a win for Bush.
