In Good Hands?

From the AP (my bolds):
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, 2001, 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 could be approved Monday and would affect commercial 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.

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 the World Trade Center and the Pentagon, the FBI concluded.

Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) urged the administration to consider the sale carefully. "America's busiest ports are vital to our economy and to the international economy, and that is why they remain top terrorist targets," Schumer said. "Just as we would not outsource military operations or law enforcement duties, we should be very careful before we outsource such sensitive homeland security duties."

Shipping experts noted that many of the world's largest port companies are not based in the United States, and they pointed to DP World's strong economic interest in operating ports securely and efficiently.

"It's in Dubai's interest to make sure this runs well," said James Lewis, who worked with the U.S. committee at the State and Commerce departments.

Stephen E. Flynn, who studies maritime security at the New York-based Council on Foreign Relations, said even under foreign control, U.S. ports will continue to be run by unionized American employees. "You're not going to have a bunch of UAE citizens working the docks," Flynn said. "They're longshoremen, vested in high-paying jobs."
I agree with those quoted above that our port security is unlikely to be affected adversely by a change in corporate management. So let's not get hysterical about this. But as the article notes appropriately, those who attacked us on 9/11 and the money that supported them passed through the UAE; the hijacker who piloted American Airlines flight 175 into the south tower of the World Trade Center was a UAE citizen. What would you have said if, on September 12, 2001, I told you that five years later Bin Laden would still be free, nuclear terrorism would be a top concern, and a panel of political appointees would approve the takeover of our port operations by a UAE company?

As a sidenote, the U.S. Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) meets in secret and is headed by Treasury Secretary John Snow. In 2004, DP World purchased part of the American company CSX for over $1 billion. Before he became Treasury Secretary, John Snow was Chairman and CEO of CSX.

The chairman of DP World is Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem. Since this man is about to play a role in protecting our borders from nuclear terrorism and other threats, it's probably worth getting to know him a bit. Here's the link to an interview in which he was asked to rate the corporate threats he faces on a scale of 1-10. His response, in descending order of importance:

1. U.S. dollar decline
2. Oil shocks
3. Stagflation
4. Over regulation
5. Pandemics
6. Terrorism
7. Proliferation of weapons of mass destruction
8. China
9. Climate change
10. Natural catastrophes

So the head of a corporation that's about to control the ports of New York, New Jersey, Baltimore, New Orleans, Miami and Philadelphia spends his day worrying about currency volatility, oil, stagflation and over-regulation. Terrorism and WMD's rate as only slightly more threatening than that menace we know as "climate change."

How's that for alignment of priorities?

This isn't about an issue at the ports, but rather about the potential exploitation of these ports to bring terrorists or WMD (missing Russian suitcase nuke, anyone?) into the US and trigger an event at a location not proximal to the port (so as to not draw attention to the port itself).

Absolutely. Even suggesting that the company has a 'vested interest' in the security of the US is like suggesting that Iran, Iraq, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and Syria cares a crap about the US because we are their main customer for oil is laughable. Could you imagine Hilary Clinton making this argument.

Once again, the powers in Washington have given US Citizens the big Fuck You.

The jobs of running and of securing ports are fundamentally different things: the list of issues that Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem gives are exactly the issues I'd want to have the people operating great chunks of world trade thinking about, whilst the role of governments is to ensure the basic security environment under which the ports can be run.

And sometimes to intervene - consider the swift shift in baggage-screening authority from airline operators to the TSA after 9/11.

After all, the government makes the regulatory structure, and if it decides that all containers are to be screened, it can legislate to have the operators screen the containers, whether the operator be eventually owned on the Dubai or on the London stock exchange. National security is an obligation for nations rather than for the sort of highly trans-national operator that P&O is - in any case, P&O is the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company, a British company.

It is unfortunate, but Duke Cunningham has a lot to do with it, and Tom Delay, and the Abramoff corruption, etc., etc., but it is probably necessary, more now than any time in our history, to have a gander at the gifts, contributions and payoffs, of those on that committee.

And of course, Bush has not deemed it important enough, or at least not more important than tax cuts for the wealthy, to actually get to where we screen all containers.

Bin Sulayam's got a valuable asset here now. And who is likely to know more about proliferation risks, an Arab who lives in the world's riskiest region, or the delusional stewbum who rules us? His risk assessment looks reasonable, and it's consistent with his decision to trade dollars for FDI. If the Chinese had been allowed to buy Conoco with their monopoly money, we would now have a more stable external balance. It's hard to accept, but every once in a while this administration omits to do the stupidest possible thing.

I believe the cleanest shot we ever had at Bin Ladin was when he visited a hunting camp. However there was a UAE prince also at the camp and if we killed him it would have been an international incident, and the missile strike was called off.

From Steve Coll's Ghost Wars
http://www.carnegiecouncil.org/viewMedia.php/prmID/4421
In early 1999, they followed bin Laden to a southern hunting camp where he was falcon hunting with a group of visiting Arab princes. The agents put up GPS devices, the Agency put up satellites and took pictures of the camp. It was a typical Persian Gulf camp, complete with generators, refrigerators and big tents, and there was even a C-130 on an airstrip nearby which the photographs allowed them to trace back to the United Arab Emirates.

This episode went on for about ten days or two weeks. Inside the National Security Cabinet, the question was, “Do we have enough information to shoot? And even if we do, can we risk killing unknown possible members of one of the United Arab Emirates’ royal families?” In the end Clinton chose not to shoot.

Many of the officers who were involved in running this operation felt very frustrated by the decision, because they had thought that this was about as good a look at him as they could get, but on the other hand, it’s easy to understand why you wouldn’t, in the middle of the Senate impeachment trial, risk destroying the royal family of the United Arab Emirates without any guarantee that you would get bin Laden; and even if you did get bin Laden while destroying half the royal family of the U.A.E., it’s not clear whether that would have been judged a success.

Your party practically worships the Market as the solution to all problems and brays on and on about the dangers of goverment regulation and inflation, yet you fault the CEO of a multinational corporation for focussing on economics and the bottom line when discussing his job?

I don't know about you, but I wouldn't trust a businesman who prefers airy talk about "The War on Terror" to discussing the nuts and bolts of his business.

Had Jack Welch said the same things, you'd probably be crowing about his hardnosed pragmatism and understanding of the primacy of economics in international affairs. But when an Arab CEO talks like one of his American colleagues, it's a dangerous sign of him being soft on terror?

Come on! Be consistent.

Can you really be that stupid. Nobody is putting the UAE in charge of homeland security. They are not taking over the coast guard. The ports are not going to be annexed into the UAE. Do you think that these "Arabs" are going to replace all the workers with radical muslims. Or maybe the US is going to put them in charge of security. It is not 1920 anymore, foreign investment is alive and well for many countries, not just ours.

Let me guess, the reason you are a loser is because of foreigners, no wait its W's fault. I bet your just stupid.

The concern here isn't particularly security. It would be very very expensive to provide anything like adequate security and we mostly haven't started trying.

The big concern here is that we're selling off US infrastructure to rich foreigners, because we need the money.

Amusing if depressingly ignorant nativist commentary. I esp. find the last comment entertaining for its pure idiocy - the sale of the assets being from a UK based company (already foreign), and yet someone is whinging on about sale of assets.

Never mind the whinging is nonsensical given the massive funding shortfalls the US is running, currently already financed by those scary furriners.

BTW a corrective on an item supra, there is no "royal family" of the UAE, each of the emirates has its own ruling family, the UAE itself if governed by a federal council.

This may be a bigger issue because of who they are, and what they have done, and who they support, but there is a lot of property owned and run by foreigners. And in a way, it is all about National Security.

I just think our politicians today, especially this administration, care about one thing, their own personal power. They don't care about the country, Constitution, or citizens.

ThinkPrgress,

Some facts about the UAE:


– The UAE was one of three countries in the world to recognize the Taliban as the legitimate government of Afghanistan.

– The UAE has been a key transfer point for illegal shipments of nuclear components to Iran, North Korea and Lybia.

– According to the FBI, money was transferred to the 9/11 hijackers through the UAE banking system.

– After 9/11, the Treasury Department reported that the UAE was not cooperating in efforts to track down Osama Bin Laden’s bank accounts.

A bipartisan group of seven members of Congress is calling on the Treasury Department to suspend their approval until they investigate the national security implications of the sale.

Let's see. President Bush knows Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, who is executive Chairman of Dubai Ports World, who just won a $7B bid to operate six U.S. ports. And Sultan Bin Sulayem knows Paul Wolfowitz, President of the World Bank.



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.

Profile: Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem
June 20, 2003


Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem is recognised as one of the leading businessmen in Dubai. As executive chairman of Dubai’s Ports, Customs & Free Zone Corporation (PCFZ); chairman of Tejari.com, a B2B marketplace; and chairman of the recently established property development company Nakheel, he is somewhat occupied one could say.

Dubai’s PCFZ Corporation has been under Sultan Bin Sulayem’s astute management since 2001, and in this time he has streamlined operations and administration to a level achieving record success. Dubai Customs was merged with Jebel Ali Free Zone and the Dubai Ports Authority in 2001 to become the billion-dollar organisation it is today.

Dubai to have strong presence at World Economic Forum in Davos
posted on 01/24/2006 by uaeinteract

Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem, Executive Chairman Ports, Customs and Free Zone Corporation (PCFC) and Nakheel, will head a six member strong delegation from The Corporate Office (TCO) at this year's World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland. Taking place from 25 - 29 January, WEF is an independent international organisation committed to improving the state of the world by engaging leaders in partnerships to shape global, regional and industry agendas, according to a press release. The 2006 Forum will see 2,340 participants from 89 countries.

This comprises 15 heads of state or government, including Angela Merkel, Federal Chancellor of Germany, who will give the Forum's opening speech, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Prime Minister of Turkey, Pervez Musharraf, President of Pakistan and Kazimierz Marcinkiewicz, Prime Minister of Poland. Other political speakers include Jack Straw, United Kingdom Foreign Secretary, and Robert Zoellick, US Deputy Secretary of State.

The business world will be represented by more than 730 chairmen and CEOs from the world's leading companies will take active part in the discussions - the highest ever since the World Economic Forum was launched in 1971. Business participants include Paul D. Wolfowitz, President, World Bank, and Sir Richard Branson, Founder and Chairman Virgin. The overarching theme of the Forum is "The Creative Imperative." Sultan Ahmed bin Sulayem will be participating in a discussion and workshop on "Pioneering Cities", which will look at the formula required for a city to emerge as a global leader in innovation and creativity. Bin Sulayem is a regular participant at the WEF, and was recently elected as a "Global Leader for Tomorrow" by WEF - a recognition of Bin Sulayem as one of a generation of leaders who are "global" in terms of their accomplishments and potential.
