NJ: State Suing Over Port Transfer

New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine has announced plans to sue the federal government over the transfer of six ports in New Jersey and elsewhere to a company owned by the United Arab Emirates. The lawsuit comes on the heels of claims by the Administration that neither President Bush nor Defense Secretary Rumsfeld claimed to be briefed on the move before it was made. Members of the UAE Royal Family have ties to Osama bin Laden. President Bush has vowed to veto any Congressional efforts to overturn the sale.
