More Fox And Henhouse

Hutchison Whampoa, Ltd. is being contracted to scan cargo for nuclear weapons.

The article says that the company has 'ties' to the Communist Chinese government. That is an understatement if I ever heard one. Do you think any company in China that is that wealthy is not under the direct control of the Chinese government?

There is no way this stuff is just slipping through the cracks. The ports should all be privately owned anyway. One of the legitimate functions of government is to protect our borders. As far as I'm concerned, the military should control port security and everything should be checked before arriving at a privately owned port. This would be a perfect job for the U.S. Navy.
