How scary is this?

I regulary receive email from Tony Perkins and his Family Research Council (keep you friends close, yada yada yada). Today I got this in the email:

Let Only Americans Stand Guard
Today is Presidents' Day and that wisdom from our first President, George Washington, is worth considering. General Washington gave an order at Valley Forge: "Let only Americans stand guard this night." The Bush administration would do well to heed that order. The administration is wrangling with Congress over a plan to let Dubai Ports World (DPW) run American ports in New York, New Jersey, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New Orleans, and Miami. Chairman Peter King (R-NY) of the House Homeland Security Committee raised questions about DPW's hiring decisions. DPW is based in the United Arab Emirates, the region from which many terrorists have been recruited. King asked: "How are they going to guard against infiltration by al Qaeda?" Leading Democrats have also jumped on the issue. Secretary Michael Chertoff has tried to reassure critics, saying that the U.S. Coast Guard will continue to handle all sensitive security issues at the ports. Wrong answer, Mr. Secretary! The Coast Guard is understaffed and overworked. Do we really want foreign nationals intimately involved in a whole array of cargo handling and inspections? Do we want them to become thoroughly familiar with some of our nation's most sensitive security procedures? Given the threat that America now faces, we should not have to question the loyalties of the watchmen.

Oh my Goddess...I actually agree with these people? I realize that not everyone in the Middle East is a terrorist, I really do. But this is kind of on a par with, oh, I don't know....having China build our military equipment. There's just certain things you don't friggin' outsource!

I wonder if the Religious Wrong have finally realized what a LOSER they backed.
