In the Nation's Best Interest: If you think about it, letting Dubai buy up those terminals at those ports is probably the best scenario for our nation's security. If Congress successfully blocks Dubai, then the public will get a sense that we dodged a bullet, that our ports will remain secure -- which is not the case. But if the Dubai deal goes through, then the public and the media will remain intent on investigating security problems, making it more likely that we will find and fix the vulnerabilities before they get exploited.

14:25 UPDATE: The Dubai deal is dead, according to The Washington Post. Looks like the White House is damn near impotent nowadays.
