From Al-Qaeda, With Love to Dubai and the U.S.

From the New York Post and Jihad Watch:

Al-Qaeda claims to have infiltrated UAE government.

Well, sure, ok, Al-Qaeda has infiltrated their government, but not to worry: Americans will still be in charge of port security.

February 25, 2006 -- WASHINGTON.

Al Qaeda warned the government of the United Arab Emirates more than three years ago that it "infiltrated" key government agencies, according to a disturbing document released by the U.S. military.

The warning was contained in a June 2002 message to UAE rulers, in which the terror network demanded the release of an unknown number of "mujahedeen detainees," who it said had been arrested during a government crackdown in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks....
Little is known about the origins or authorship of the message.

"You are well aware that we have infiltrated your security, censorship and monetary agencies, along with other agencies that should not be mentioned," the message said. "Therefore, we warn of the continuation of practicing . . . policies which do not serve your interest and will only cost you many problems that will place you in an embarrassing state before your citizens. Your homeland is exposed to us. There are many vital interests that will hurt you if we decided to harm them."

But all's well, I'm sure, because Bush says it's all fine. I suppose that means that all those al-Qaeda infiltrators into the Dubai government agencies are all gone now, so there will be no fear that any infiltration into our port system is possible. And besides, there's going to be that 45-day review of the deal. . .

What's that, you say?

The people reviewing it will be the same committee that approved it in the first place?

    When news of the ports deal first came out, FNC acted a bit outraged. But as time has worn on, more and more of the commentators, including Bill O'Reilly, have come out in favor of the deal. Prince Alaweed's dollars at work?

    Right now, on DaySide, I'm hearing the sane side from a former Green Beret (the sane side being "Don't trust the UAE").

    To put it mildly, the ports deal smells.
