"Look, you know I carry no water for the Bush administration. There is no doubt in my mind that seaport security is lax and that the Bush administration is to blame for that, post 9-11. But I don't see a much if any difference between these seaports being run by P&O and DPW. They're both essentially run by Western businessmen."

I think the issue became W's uninformed rush to judgment, a decision made for reasons OTHER than port security, even if after further inquiry it appears that there are more positives to negatives to allowing Dubai to operate these ports.

BTW, I know it's a typo, but I think you accidentally came up with just the right two word phrase to describe how many of us, and it seems 66% of the presently polled population, sees the W Administration's efforts at home and abroad:

"errorist operations"

I like it!
