US port debate

What's interesting to me in the US ports debate isn't the security aspect. (It seems quite clear that which foreign company handles operations won't make much of a difference. The ports are still staffed by Americans and security is still handled by US agencies.)

What's interesting is the lack of trust Americans, including both parties of Congress, have in the Bush administration. When Bush says that due diligence was done in vetting the United Arab Emirates company, nobody believes him. Not even the Republican congressional leadership. Sad.
