Long-time maritime law blogger Marc Marling weighs in on the Dubai Ports world controversy. I agree with Marc in his assessment that this whole thing has gotten out of control. As he states:
Instead of spending significant airtime on this political debate which has resulted in the odd pairings of George Bush and Jimmy Carter on the same side with Barbara Boxer and Bill Frist on the other, it would be more fruitful to spend time raising consciousness about the venerability of our nation’s ports – regardless of the operator in place there.
Marc promises to follow up with more posts about port security, so I suggest keeping up with things over at Proctor in Admiralty.
