There has been a lot of hubbub over the port deal in the last week or so. Many in the blogosphere have changed sides of the issue, and Michelle Malkin is all over it. Go read her post for all the background and current arguments. I'll wait here until you are done.
Here is the deal as I see it: 1) The next terrorist incident in the United States is going to come here either by air or by sea. 2) Port operations are vital to the security of the United States. 3)Border operations are of vital interest to us all.
4) The current administration has failed to secure our land borders. 5) Sea ports are just another way of getting into the United States.
Do we want our port operations conducted by anyone but Americans?
I'm still against this deal.
