Westfield runs many shopping malls throughout the country, including security. They are a foreign company who runs malls in England and Australia. Shopping centers are just as much a target for terrorism as anywhere else, as proven in other countries in the past.
Stop the presses!!!!
Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

Wondered how long it would take until this became "news". Guess we'd better keep quiet about BAA's involvement at PIT...
I wish I had more time to worry about this, but I have to go. Seems I need to go gas up my Honda (japanese owned, built in Ohio), either at Shell (Dutch) or BP (British). Then I'll check the tire pressure on my Michelins (French) before driving to Chicago. I'll be using the Indiana Toll Road (soon to be managed by a Spanish/Aussie group), and the Chicago Skyway (already managed by same group).
Wish me luck. According to the loony left, I should be in fear for my life, huh? Somehow George W. Bush let all this happen. How can I safely get to Chicago?

Quoting N1120A (Reply 6): The loony left? I don't think many people consider Matt Drudge a leftist.
His whole point for posting this kind of thing is to make mistakes on the conservative side (like the Dubai port deal) look "less bad" - because someone else has done the same or similar things before. He does this all the time - any time bad press comes out about people or parties he supports, he digs up some nugget that is supposed to make the critics look hypocritical. (And I guess some people don't realize this is what he's doing.) The problem is, airports and seaports are completely different, specifically in the laws that deal with how cargo is handled and inspected. That's why the seaports deal is such a big issue and the airport issue less so. And honestly, I don't personally see it as "racist" that you give more scrutiny to a company from a country that has directly participated in the financing of terrorists (and only became an official "ally" after 2001) vs. a company from a country that has been a US ally for at least 100 years and has not been involved in hostilities against this country since the main infantry weapon was the musket.
Or maybe the Indianapolis airport deal really is part of some nefarious plot to get revenge for the War of 1812.
I'm tired of being a wanna-be league bowler. I wanna be a league bowler!

True, Drudge is not considered part of the liberal media. Usually he posts links to news found elsewhere. However, the majority of the outrage over the "port deal" is coming from the left. It's pandering to their base, who does not have any idea just how global our economy is. If Hillary, Harry Reid, or Chcuk Schumer can make use of this, they'll be happy to do so.
