None So Blind As Those Who Will Not See

And those people seem to be Republicans. This here is from William F Buckley Jr.
John Negroponte, director of national intelligence, had surveilled the proposed sale [of US ports management to DB World] and found no objection to it. The Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States, an interagency committee that passes judgment on foreign acquisitions, had approved the shift. The Coast Guard was unconcerned. [emphasis mine] Link

Oh yeah? That doesn't seem to be the info I've found at many internets sites.
The US Coast Guard warned there were gaps in intelligence over the security risk of an Arab firm bidding to run six major US ports, the Senate has heard.

The last is from BBC NEWS.

A Google search for "coast guard security ports concerns" only returned 2,160,000 items. Unconcerned? Not so much.

Jesus H Christ, do we have to hit these clowns on the head with a sledge hammer before they get it?
