Remember, the UAE--
- Is the home of several of the 9/11 hijackers.
- Funnelled money to the 9/11 terrorists.
- Resisted U.S. efforts to trace the money.
- Is part of the Hate Israel chorus in the Middle East.
The truth of the matter is, Bush and his family (and his business cronies) have long ties to the anti-American Arab world. When you boil it right down, money trumps country every time with these people. And the Republicans have managed to convince millions of people that the Republicans are the "patriotic" party. WAKE UP, AMERICA, AND LOOK AT THE DAMNED FACTS.
