Bob Dole consults for Dubai company

Deal concerns Sen. Elizabeth Dole

This aspect of the deal is one that was troubling me yesterday. I wondered how this could get so screwed up.

Somewhere along the way, one of two things probably happened. Either the UAE forgot to bribe and buy all of the right politicians, or someone in the loop pocketed the money before it could get to the polticians.

George Bush has explained that he's been in the loop all along, even as the White House says he was ignorant of the whole deal. Perhaps someone in his administration mishandled the alleged bribery funds?

As we know politicians are in the business of nurturing ethics, moral, patriotism and even good manners in hopes that someone with a dollar will ask them to bend over sell them out. So clearly what went wrong in this deal is that the honey didn't make it to everyone that thinks they deserved some.

Once the bribery money makes it to all of the whiners that want a cut, that deal will go through quicker than a politician can pretend to offer a reach-around, to one of his constituents.

And if a terrorist attack comes out of this loosening of security, it won't be Washington's fault. They have no trouble finding scapegoats when they get caught screwing up.

It's never been about security. It's always been about pocketing money. This time is no different.
