Having one of those super busy days – will be back to blogging tonight … probably for the best as I need to step back from all the hype on the issue of the UAE port sale. This issue is turning out to be similar to the Harriet Miers issue in terms of the outrage and hyperventilating and sometimes when that happens, it’s best to step back and take a breather, refocus, and perhaps reconsider the facts.
Consider this an open thread. Catch ya’ll later tonight.
Update: Here are a couple of interesting posts up on the UAE port deal – one from Dafydd ab Hugh at Big Lizards – who has examined both sides of this issue and offers what he characterizes as a modest proposal to resolve it, and the other from ST reader CavalierX who asks: Port Paranoia: Prudence or Prejudice? .
