A funny thing happened on the way to the rotten Dubai Ports World deal to takeover 6 American ports.
Hillary Clinton who constantly denounces profiling of Arabs and Muslims for national security is now in favor of profiling of (Dubaian) Arabs and Muslims for national security (in the ports deal).
George W. Bush whose counter-terror program includes profiling of Arabs and Muslims for national security is now calling us Americans who are against this silly sale unfair profilers against Mid-Easterners, more or less.
Here’s the quote, courtesy of AP:
I want those who are questioning it to step up and explain why all of a sudden a Middle Eastern company is held to a different standard than a Great British company. I am trying to conduct foreign policy now by saying to the people of the world, “We’ll treat you fairly.”
Yup, he’s calling us profilers. Bush is Hillary, and Hillary is Bush, this week.
So why is Bush so defensive on the DP Ports deal? Maybe it has something to do with one of his brothers. Stay tuned.
