    Default Bill Clinton advises Dubai as Hillary attacks its US ports deal

    WASHINGTON (AFP) - Former president Bill Clinton has privately advised Dubai officials how to address US political concerns over a controversial ports deal, as his wife, Senator Hillary Clinton, publicly attacks the deal.

    Dubai Ports World bid to takeover Britain's P and O, which runs terminal operations at six major US ports, has triggered a political firestorm in the United States.

    Senator Clinton has voiced vigorous opposition to the 5.7-billion-euro (6.8-billion-dollar) takeover, saying it threatens US national security.

    She is attempting to push legislation through Congress that seeks to block the deal, partly on the grounds that DP World is foreign-government owned.

    Meanwhile, the Financial Times reported Thursday her husband -- who it said was paid 300,000 dollars in 2002 to address a summit in Dubai -- has advised Dubai officials how to soothe US concerns over the deal.

    "Mr. Clinton, who this week called the United Arab Emirates a 'good ally to America,' advised Dubai's leaders to propose a 45-day delay to allow for an intensive investigation of the acquisition," the FT said, citing a spokesman for the ex president.

    DP World has agreed with the White House to undertake a more lengthy review process of the deal, despite already received government approval for it to proceed.

    The takeover would see DP World run ports at Baltimore, Miami, New Jersey, New Orleans, New York and Philadelphia.

    A court in London was due to give a ruling on Wednesday on the legality of DP World's takeover of the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Co.

    Of course she will oppose it. The dems are in the pockets of the unions and the unions don't like the deal. From what I have read about it it doesn't seem like that much of a big deal. They will control 9 of approx 320 terminals within the ports. They have nothing to do with security and who runs it. The same people who work at these ports now will continue to work there. One positive that may come out of this 45 day investigation is that the security of the ports will once again be investigated for possible holes in security.

    Hillary claims she didn't know Bill was advising Dubai on the port deal. Bullshit. Or maybe my theory is correct- they appear to be married, but really live seperate lives. Their marriage is a sham.
