UAE Deal

Ok I have been ranting/blogging about this deal since 02/13/06. I have found it to be very alarming. Every day a few more people express alarm as well. All along certain people have told me it's not that big a deal (SouthieBoy, The Chief). So I have been trying to keep an open mind. Now that I have read more about it at the CounterTerrorism Blog and listened to this story on NPR Morning Edition, I am starting to rethink my position. It is unfortunate that once again, the White House has not put out the best information in their own defense. The SecDef's words last week really bear this out. This issue was slow to build (10 days at least to my knowledge), there was plenty of time to head a lot of us off at the pass with facts. Why are they so tone deaf on this stuff. Is Karl Rove ok? He most definitely does not have his finger on the pulse of the American people.

Does this mean you now believe what the Chief and SouthieBoy have been telling you? Maybe they were/are correct?

Much as neither of their egos need the boost.........yes, I believe them and should not have doubted them. They are both highly intelligent men.
