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?
