Dubai Company Gives Up On Ports Deal - CBS News

Dubai Company Gives Up On Ports Deal - CBS News:
"The offer by the Dubai company to sell the port facilities it just bought in New York, Newark, New Orleans and other cities followed a clear signal from Congress that it was not going to let this deal stand, regardless of strong support from President Bush. Despite administration pleas that Dubai is an ally and a help in the fight against terrorists, Congress was responding to a visceral reaction from voters around the country to the idea of a company owned by an Arab government running American ports. "

If this holds, the people have finally been heard. I certainly hope so...
