Bush administration further rewards human traffickers

You have to ask yourself the question of if President Bush’s administration is too close with the U.A.E. government?

This recent deal that is cooking with the intention of turning over of six major U.S. seaports to Dubai Ports, a U.A.E. government run company, and the Presidential decision to lift sanctions for trafficking of human beings imposed on the U.A.E., I really have to ask the question of if the Bush administration is in bed with the U.A.E. government?

There are so many things that when pieced together does not add up.

For instance, Bush has made statements in the passed that the proceeds of human trafficking are used to support terrorist operations.

In a recent statement, Bush was quoted as saying, "This is a company [Dubai Ports] that has played by the rules, has been cooperative with the United States, from a country that's an ally on the war on terror, and it would send a terrible signal to friends and allies not to let this transaction go through."

So which is it President Bush, are they an ally on the war on terror, or are they a supporting terror with the proceeds from trafficking human beings?

On October 18th, 2005, I had a meeting with someone who worked for the Department of State in front of the Armenia Hotel and I asked this person about what was going on with the sanctions against the U.A.E. for being placed on Tier 3, which is the black list of countries who are found to be the biggest violators of trafficking humans?

The Department of State worker told me that unfortunately their recommendations fell on deaf ears and Bush decided to lift sanctions for reasons they didn’t agree with.

So the big question I have for Washington and all those that support the recent proposed arrangement with the turnover of six major seaports is why?
