Once again President George W. Bush rewards human traffickers

You really have to ask yourself what is the deal between George W. Bush and Dubai?

This is the third time in less than 8 months that I can document that Bush is trying to cozy up with the people of the United Arab Emirates.

To begin with, Bush knows good and well that Dubai is a hotbed of the lucrative and very illegal activity of human trafficking of women and children for the sex slave business.

When the U.S. Department of State was pushing for sanctions after the UAE was placed on the human trafficking black-list (Tier 3), Bush waived the sanctions they had coming to them.

Then we have the Dubai Ports deal, which Bush approved, but was later reversed.

Now we have Bush approving a $1.24 billion takeover of Doncasters, a British engineering company with U.S. plants that supply the Pentagon.

You have to ask where all this money is coming from and why is Bush allowing human traffickers to launder their illegal proceeds?

John P. Torres, Deputy Assistant Director of Smuggling & Public Safety, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), Department of Homeland Security, stated before the House Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security and Claims Committee on the Judiciary "Alien Smuggling: New Tools and Intelligence Initiatives," May 18, 2004, 2 p.m., Room 2141, Rayburn House Office Building, "This international criminal market is extraordinarily lucrative, generating an estimated $9.5 billion in profit for criminal organizations worldwide. In many cases, these profits fuel additional criminal enterprises, such as the trafficking of drugs, weapons, or other contraband, or the funds are laundered and invested in legitimate business enterprises. These untraced profits feed organized crime activities, undermining governmental action and the rule of law, while allowing these criminal networks to grow stronger, more resilient, and more dangerous."

You got to ask, how much of this estimated $9.5 billion is going to Dubai and of their share how much is being invested in legitimate business enterprises that Bush allowing them to invest in?

It really seems that Bush is in bed with the UAE and I’m wondering how much he is getting from them to be so cooperative?

War on terror starts by cutting off any kind of economic advances, which clearly in this case Bush is not doing.
