Regarding the management of U.S. ports by a company in the UAE (United Arab Emirates), Pres. Bush stated:
I imagine his intended meaning is "If we were concerned that this deal would adversely affect the Security of the United States of America, then we wouldn't undertake it." However, his actual words seem to connote: "If we paid attention to the security of the United States of America, then we wouldn't undertake this deal." What do you think? Did he use sloppy wording that seems to mean the opposite of what he probably was trying to convey?This deal wouldn't go forward if we were concerned about the security for the United States of America.
