    NO-BID CONTRACT given to Hutchison Whampoa

    "WASHINGTON (AP) - One of Americans' favorite beach destinations, the Bahamas, is getting a new U.S. arrival - sophisticated equipment to detect radioactive materials in shipping cargo. But U.S. customs agents won't be on site to supervise the machine's use as a nuclear safeguard for the American shoreline that is just 65 miles away from Freeport. Under an unusual arrangement, a Hong Kong company will help operate the detector.

    The Bush administration says it is finalizing a no-bid contract with Hutchison Whampoa Ltd. It acknowledged the deal is the first time a foreign company will be involved in running a radiation detector at an overseas port without American customs agents present."

    Do you understand?

    A no-bid contract

    We are giving a contract to China to search for nukes, after they threaten to destroy hundreds of our cities!!!!!!!

    Here's a question for you: Is this plain stupidity, or by design?

    Where is the media attention on this one?

    Oh, and remember the ports in California that Clinton gave to the Chinese?

    What will it take to wake the American people up?

    I agree. This is the first ive heard of this story. This is completely outrageous. I don't know why our politicians insist on playcating our enemies by being their friends.

    I'd be curious as to Bush's reasoning for this.

    A nuclear explosion on American soil that was snuck into this country through a port that kills millions... or maybe TWO nuclear explosions. We seem to forget things like 9/11 real quick. We just seem to COURT the next disaster, and not learn from our mistakes.

    Why no outrage ?? Easy. The liberals and the press didn't orchestrate anything against Chinese taking over anything.
