Administration Ties to Dubai Firm Questioned:


Two Bush Administration officials have ties to the Dubai firm DP World that is set to take over port security in New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Miami, and Baltimore, according to the New York Daily News. The President tapped David Sanborn, the head of DP World’s European and Latin American operations, to lead the Maritime Administration last month. Also, Treasury Secretary John Snow’s former company, CSX Rail, sold its international port operations to DP World. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), “The more you look at this deal, the more the deal is called into question.”
