"DUMB AND DUMBER"
After thousands of innocent civilians lost their lives on 9/11, the Bush Administration said the fiasco was the work of Islamic militant terrorists.
Almost weekly for the next two years, the FBI and/or Homeland Security issued bogus "Rumors of Wars" threats more terror attacks, which they blamed on Islamic militant terrorists.
Regularly since 9/11, bogus video tapes reportedly from Osama bin Laden has threatened America in every way imaginable, coming from the supposed leader of worldwide Islamic terrorism.
Now, President Bush has authorized the sale of key, sensitive sea ports -- six civilian and 2 military -- to an Islamic company from the United Arab Emirates (U.A.E.)!!
After an enormous outpouring of anger, shock, and disbelief erupted in all areas of Mass Media following the announcement of this decision, President Bush had the incredible gall to defend this leasing decision and to even threaten a veto of pending bills if Congress tried to block this decision!
THE INCREDIBLE NEWS
NEWS BRIEF: "U.A.E. Company Poised To Oversee Six U.S. Ports", ABC News, Feb 11, 2006
" A company in the United Arab Emirates is poised to take over significant operations at six American ports as part of a corporate sale, leaving a country with ties to the Sept. 11 hijackers with influence over a maritime industry considered vulnerable to terrorism. The Bush administration considers the UAE an important ally in the fight against terrorism since the suicide hijackings and is not objecting to Dubai Ports World's purchase of London-based Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Co."
"The $6.8 billion sale is expected to be approved Monday. The British company is the fourth largest ports company in the world and its sale would affect commercial U.S. port operations in New York, New Jersey, Baltimore, New Orleans, Miami and Philadelphia. DP World said it won approval from a secretive U.S. government panel that considers security risks of foreign companies buying or investing in American industry.
The U.S. Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States 'thoroughly reviewed the potential transaction and concluded they had no objection', the company said in a statement to The Associated Press. The committee, which could have recommended that President Bush block the purchase, includes representatives from the departments of Treasury, Defense, Justice, Commerce, State and Homeland Security. The State Department describes the UAE as a vital partner in the fight against terrorism. But the UAE, a loose federation of seven emirates on the Saudi peninsula, was an important operational and financial base for the hijackers who carried out the attacks against New York and Washington, the FBI concluded."
Some lawmakers immediately objected.
NEWS BRIEF: "White House Defends Port Sale to Arab Co.", Breitbart News, February 16, 2006
"The Bush administration on Thursday rebuffed criticism about potential security risks of a $6.8 billion sale that gives a company in the United Arab Emirates control over significant operations at six major American ports. Lawmakers asked the White House to reconsider its earlier approval of the deal. The sale to state-owned Dubai Ports World was 'rigorously reviewed' by a U.S. committee that considers security threats when foreign companies seek to buy or invest in American industry, National Security Council spokesman Frederick Jones said. The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States, run by the Treasury Department, reviewed an assessment from U.S. intelligence agencies. The committee's 12 members agreed unanimously the sale did not present any problems, the department said."
"The unusual defense of the secretive committee, which reviews hundreds of such deals each year, came in response to criticism about the purchase of London-based Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Co. The world's fourth-largest ports company runs commercial operations at shipping terminals in New York, New Jersey, Baltimore, New Orleans, Miami and Philadelphia. Four senators and three House members asked the administration Thursday to reconsider its approval. The lawmakers contended the UAE is not consistent in its support of U.S. terrorism-fighting efforts.
" 'The potential threat to our country is not imagined, it is real', Rep. Mark Foley, R-Fla., said in a House speech."
NEWS BRIEF: "Democrats plan bill to block Dubai port deal", Reuters News, February 17, 2006
"WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two U.S. Democratic senators said on Friday they would introduce legislation aimed at blocking Dubai Ports World from buying a company that operates several U.S. shipping ports because of security concerns ... Robert Menendez of New Jersey and Hillary Clinton of New York said they would offer a measure to ban companies owned or controlled by foreign governments from acquiring U.S. port operations. 'We wouldn't turn the border patrol or the customs service over to a foreign government, and we can't afford to turn our ports over to one either', Menendez said in a statement. The Senate Banking Committee also plans to hold a hearing on the issue later this month."
Come to think of it, this type of news story is probably what we will hear of next: the sale of the Southwestern US Border Patrol to Chinese interests! Why not? That would be no more of a security risk than turning our key ports over to Islamic interests.
"P&O, the company Dubai Ports World plans to buy for $6.8 billion, is already foreign-owned, by the British, but the concern is that the purchaser is backed by the United Arab Emirates government. The UAE company would gain control over the management of major U.S. ports in New York and New Jersey, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New Orleans and Miami and that has sparked national security concerns among lawmakers. 'I will be working with Senator Menendez to introduce legislation that will prohibit the sale of ports to foreign governments', Clinton said in a statement.:"
"... some Republicans and Democrats in the U.S. Congress urged the Bush administration to conduct a more rigorous review. They expressed fears that the UAE was used as a conduit for parts used for nuclear proliferation and that the local banking system had been abused by financiers with possible links to terrorist organizations ... U.S. officials have said the UAE has been a solid and cooperative partner in the fight against terrorism, and have praised the UAE for steps to protect its booming financial sector against abuse by terrorism financiers."
However, despite this "cooperation" with American authorities by the UAE, that country has been involved with terrorists in the not-too-distant past. Listen:
"Money for the September 11 attacks was wired through the UAE's banking system, according to U.S. officials. Two of the September 11 hijackers were UAE citizens." (Ibid.)
Remember this fact, for we shall return to the theme shortly in this article.
This next statement offers a glimpse into the core of this pending disaster.
"U.S. seaports handle 2 billion tons of freight each year, but only about 5 percent of containers entering the United States are examined on arrival."
That is the crux of the problem -- containers coming through these ports are rarely inspected, thus offering the Islamic terrorists a golden opportunity to sneak through Weapons of Mass Destruction -- Nuclear, chemical, and biological. In the movie, "Sum of All Fears", Neo-Nazi terrorists from Europe were able to sneak an atomic bomb through the port of Baltimore. In that movie, about 70,000 American men, women and children paid for that mistake with their lives.
Why not just give these Islamic terrorists the keys to our cities? Maybe this deal does just that!
Patriotic American companies turned to the court system to try to block this insane plan.
NEWS BRIEF: "U.S. company files lawsuit trying to block Arab control over 6 key ports", Canada.com, February 18, 2006
"WASHINGTON (AP) - A company at the Port of Miami has sued to block the takeover of shipping operations by a state-owned business in the United Arab Emirates. It is the first U.S. courtroom effort to capsize a $6.8-billion sale already embroiled in a national debate over security risks at six major ports affected by the deal ... The Miami subsidiary, Continental Stevedoring & Terminals Inc., said the sale to Dubai is prohibited under its partnership agreement with the British firm and 'may endanger the national security of the United States'. It asked a judge to block the takeover and said it does not believe the company, Florida or the U.S. government can ensure Dubai Ports World's compliance with security rules."
This last point is exactly right! When dealing with any Islamic government, you cannot guarantee that militant terrorists will be denied the use of these port facilities for terrorist purposes. Just because the UAE government is officially the friend of the United States -- RIGHT NOW -- every moderate Islamic government allied with the Bush Administration has recurring nightmares about radical Islamic elements within their country. These Islamic militants in every country control -- or nearly control -- either the armed forces or the intelligence community. Remember how Pakistan sold nuclear bombs to Saudi Arabia and Iran (NEWS1660) during the past two decades; even though the official government was strongly pro-American, the intelligence community was controlled by Islamic radicals. Cooperating with equally radical Islamic leadership in the Iranian and Saudi intelligence communities, these Pakistanis sold nuclear bombs to both Saudi Arabia and Iran. The world has yet to realize the poisonous fall-out from this terrible sale -- and radical elements in all three governments cooperated, perhaps under the radar of their respective governments.
The UAE is no exception. Their intelligence community, and maybe even their armed forces, are staffed with significant numbers of Islamic militants holding positions of enough importance that they can get terrorist weaponry or the components thereof, shipped through these American ports to which they have just been given access. Doubt it not!
Not only do radical Islamic militants continually threaten pro-Western governments, the citizens of every Arab country are radically militant! American brutal tactics during the Iraqi war have forced every Islamic population over the line of radical Islam.
Just look carefully at the recent elections in Israel to select a new Palestinian Authority government. Despite the best efforts of America and Israel to buttress the more "moderate" Chairman Abbas, and despite fire-breathing threats from Israel, warning that they would not tolerate a government headed by Hamas, the Palestinian people overwhelmingly elected a Hamas government. Today, that terrorist government is in power, breathing deadly threats against Israel.
Just two years ago, the people of Turkey elected a hardline Islamic President, defying decades of harsh military control -- a military which was ardently pro-West and pro-Israel.
The people of Iran have just elected the most radical of all hardliners as President, a man who has visions of helping the Islamic Messiah -- the 12th Imam Mahdi -- to appear and lead the Muslim peoples all over the world to final victory over the decadent West.
Whenever an Islamic people have a real opportunity to elect a government, they elect hardline militants. That is a recent lesson of history.
But, there is another huge problem with trusting the Islamic government of the UAE with controlling these ports. Not only do pro-Western Islamic governments have trouble maintaining oversight and control over their radical militants, BUT:
FRIENDLY PRO-WESTERN ISLAMIC GOVERNMENTS DO NOT KEEP THEIR WORD!
During the negotiations undertaken by Prime Minister Sharon of Israel to unilaterally withdraw from The Gaza Strip, Sharon trusted the pro-Western Egyptian government to keep firm control over the border crossing at the Philadelphi Corridor. This particular border crossing was problematic for Israel as she contemplated withdrawing from Gaza, because Palestinian militants had constantly used that border crossing to sneak men and war materiel through into Gaza; further, militants were constantly building deep, wide, and sophisticated tunnels under that entire area, through which they did smuggled tremendous quantities of men and supplies to be used to kill Jews.
The IDF was only partly successful in intercepting such movement of enemy supplies through this border crossing. Israel simply could not tolerate the idea of handing over that border crossing with Egypt to the Palestinians. Therefore, Sharon reached agreement with Egypt, whereby the Egyptians promised to keep a reasonable control over men and supplies crossing through that crossing.
Listen to this story and comprehend its impact upon the Bush Administration decision to hand the keys of six of our key ports to the Islamic government of the UAE.
NEWS BRIEF: "Egyptians and Palestinians Make a Mockery of Their Accords with Israel", DEBKAfile Intelligence, September 14, 2005
"The sights and scenes in Gaza Strip immediately after the Israeli troop pullback Monday, Sept 12, filled Israel’s defense leaders with dread. Total loss of control was manifested by the Palestinian Authority and the Egyptian border police, who stood by as tens of thousands of Palestinians indulged in a wild orgy of destruction, burning, looting and hurling themselves back and forth across the Gazan-Egyptian border unchecked. Long months of painstaking negotiations with Egypt, the Palestinians and the United States for coordination on post-evacuation security were trampled underfoot ... Egyptian border police, deployed under a binding protocol with Israel to block the border to unauthorized traffic, obligingly helped infiltrators clamber over the wall marking the frontier."
"... according to DEBKAfile’s military sources, this spontaneity was exploited if not generated by the Hamas and Jihad Islamic terrorist groups. With the help of Egyptian troops, they used the tide of people to cover the illegal transfer from northern Sinai into the Gaza Strip of hundreds of terrorists with sidearms, Qassam missiles, long-range rockets, and anti-tank and ground-air missiles."
As you can see, Egypt had no intention of ever living up to their promises to Israel to maintain reasonable control over the Gazan-Egyptian border checkpoint.
This next segment makes it very clear that this decision to throw the border crossing open came directly from Cairo!
"(Defense Minister) Mofaz was struck dumb. The entire edifice of agreements including a new military protocol between Israel and Egypt had been swept away overnight – not just by the Palestinians, but by Cairo." (Ibid.)
The pro-Western, pro-American President of Egypt, Mubarak, had totally and deliberately failed to live up to his agreement with Israel, and by extension, with America. This Egyptian government never had any intention whatsoever of living up to their word.
But, there is more, as this next article demonstrates. Listen as DEBKAfile catalogs the staggering numbers of contraband material and men flowing through the wide-open Gazan-Egyptian border crossing.
NEWS BRIEF: "Palestinian Terrorists Pour Tens of Millions into a New Arms Stockpile", DEBKAfile Intelligence, September 17, 2005
"1. 3,000 automatic rifles. The new supply, most of which is destined for Hamas, gives the organization a total of 10,000 Kalashnikovs, enough for thousands of new recruits.
2. Hundreds of AT-23 Sagger anti-tank missiles.
3. SAM-14 Strela anti-air missiles – quantity unknown.
4. Improved Qassam surface missiles. Their range is 13km or 18km, depending on whether Israeli or Egyptian intelligence evaluations are accepted. The shorter-range can reach Ashkelon, the longer one can menace the southern suburbs of the Ashdod port town, Ashkelon, Kiryat Gath, Kiryat Malachi (where the Israeli President’s private home is located), Ofakim, Netivot and prime minister Ariel Sharon’s Sycamore Ranch.
5. Land mines of different types – quantity unknown.
6. More than 250 tons of explosives.
"In addition, an estimated 500-700 armed and highly-trained men have infiltrated Gaza through Sinai to boost the ranks of the Hamas and Jihad Islami ... Hamas, Jihad Islami and other terrorist groups have emptied out their Sinai arms dumps in the Gaza Strip – an Israeli officer estimated that the tons of explosives, rockets, RPGs and missiles would have kept three large Sinai-Rafah arms tunnels busy around the clock for a year. But on top of that supply, Hamas, Jihad Islami and other Palestinian groups have been on a shopping spree. Their funding sources are not known for certain, but DEBKAfile’s sources can reveal how and where they are getting their lethal merchandise. Iranian and Hizballah agents – as well as al Qaeda buyers – are using their contacts with local gangs of arms traffickers in Serbia, Slovakia, Montenegro, Croatia and Kosovo, to fill Palestinian stores with new weaponry. The arms are shipped out of ports in Montenegro and Croatia to Yemen and Sudan, thence to Sinai and into the Gaza Strip, unchecked by Egyptians or Palestinian security."
Did you catch that last statement? "unchecked by Egyptians or Palestinian security."
If the long-term friend and ally of the United States, Egyptian President Mubarak, would not keep his word even for a short while to maintain reasonable control over the Gazan-Egyptian border crossing, what chance do we see of the United Arab Emirates keeping their word to maintain reasonably tight security over these six civilian ports they are about to control?
President Bush had better answer this question carefully, for tens of millions of American citizens of New York, New Jersey, Baltimore, New Orleans, Miami and Philadelphia may just pay for this Presidential "mistake" with their precious lives.
But, there is more to this fiasco!
UAE WILL CONTROL TWO MILITARY PORTS!
NEWS BRIEF: "UAE Would Also Control Shipments of Military Equipment For The U.S. Army", Think Progress, February 20, 2006
"There is bipartisan concern about the Bush administration’s decision to outsource the operation of six of the nation’s largest ports to a company controlled by the United Arab Emirates (UAE) because of that nation’s troubling ties to international terrorism. The sale of P&O to Dubai World Ports would give the state-owned company control of 'the ports of New York, New Jersey, Baltimore, New Orleans, Miami and Philadelphia'.”
"A major part of the story, however, has been mostly overlooked. The company, Dubai Ports World, would also control the movement of military equipment on behalf of the U.S. Army through two other ports. From today’s edition of the British paper Lloyd’s List:
"[P&O] has just renewed a contract with the United States Surface Deployment and Distribution Command to provide stevedoring [loading and unloading] of military equipment at the Texan ports of Beaumont and Corpus Christi through 2010. According to the journal Army Logistician, 'Almost 40 percent of the Army cargo deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom flows through these two ports'. Thus, the sale would give a country that has been 'a key transfer point for illegal shipments of nuclear components to Iran, North Korea and Lybia' direct control over substantial quantities U.S. military equipment."
Can you imagine the political mud which would hit the fan if President Clinton approved such a deal? How could a Republican President who has acted so "cowboy tough" against Islamic terrorists throughout the world turn around and defend the decision to turn over control of such key port facilities to an Islamic government, when any informed citizen instinctively knows the inherent dangers in such a stupid decision -- dangers we have enunciated above?
Cutting Edge has taken the lead in describing the Illuminati plan to discredit President Bush so completely that his presidency might fall. Starting in February, 2004, we noted that many Illuminist leaders in America and throughout the world were suddenly attacking President Bush for his policies, or were leaking the original story of the Abu Ghraib sex and torture scandal, a scandal which may yet dethrone the President.
Mark my word, when the next terrorist attack against an American city explodes, killing untold thousands of people, if official reports surface that the bomb was smuggled through one of these ports controlled by the UAE, President Bush may be impeached very quickly. And, if his foreign policy gets us into a hot shooting war with Iran which explodes throughout the world into World War III (as is the plan), the President may have to suspend the Constitution to keep from being impeached!
But, if he is impeached, President Bush will take down into extreme ruin the only two enemies the Illuminati has ever admitted having:
1) National Sovereignty -- the ability of the head of a sovereign, independent nation to take action deemed necessary for the well-being of the nation
2) Fundamental Christianity -- once the Bush foreign policy explodes into international disaster, we will hear pundits saying that President Bush took his actions based upon his prophetic beliefs and upon his Dominion Theology (which is heretical). Because so many Christian leaders have falsely convinced so many pew-sitters that the President is a Christian, a future world leader could use these facts to order an unprecedented crackdown on all Christians, thus precipitating the long-planned persecution of the Church.
It is in this context which we must consider this most ridiculous approval by Bush officials of the port lease to the Islamic UAE.
