Should a United Arab Emirates-based company be allowed to run six major U.S. seaports?
Asked at Borders, 700 N.H. on February 22, 2006
“I think that if U.S. companies have the right to own businesses and properties abroad, then foreign companies should have the same right.”
“No. It’s bad public relations. : We should spend public money on companies that will keep their profits in the states, especially when it comes to a sensitive issue like port security.”
“Absolutely not. I think it’s insane to allow a company from a country that is the financial source of so much terrorism to have any control over our ports.”
“We probably shouldn’t be giving out control of our ports when we don’t really have enough control over them ourselves.”
