Daisy,

Thanks very much for your comments.
I laugh at Harrak because it beats the alternative. It's also therapeutic. I laugh not because his arguments are funny, but because they're so inane.

You're right that Harrak and others like him are no more funny or harmless than an SS officer, but Harrak is also no more condescending than our leaders are. For proof, you need only look at the president's reaction to our concerns about Dubai Ports World. The American people were called bigoted and parochial for even questioning the wisdom of this deal.

Our leaders are too politically correct to call a spade a spade. Either that or they've been bought off. That includes the elite press. They figure that anyone who has concerns is emotional or too uninformed to know any better. With few exceptions, they won't respond to any of this until they or their family members become victims of a terror attack. It's sad but true.
