Subsequently the White House Spokesman, Mr. Scott McClellon, told the press that there was no home security problem or exposure because the UAE government gave assurances that all security concerns were adequately answered.
Apparently the Administration agrees that UAE knows more about U.S. port security needs than the U.S. Coast Guard.
I believe that similar "assurances" were given to Neville Chamberlain by Adolf Hitler in the Munich Agreement signed in September 1938 stating Hitler had no further territorial demands in Europe. Unfortunately, Germany invaded Czechoslovakia in March 1939, and subsequently most of Europe and large parts of Russia.
So much for assurances. Assurances and 50 cents are good for a newspaper but highly questionable for foreign policy.
