SHARE McCain sort of defends Bush on port security: No ``rush to judgement’’

The following is a statement by Senator John McCainon the debate over the Bush Administration’s decision to allow Dubai Ports World of the United Arab Emirates to manage U.S. sea ports.

“We all need to take a moment and not rush to judgment on this matter

without knowing all the facts.

The President’s leadership has earned

our trust in the war on terror, and surely his administration deserves

the presumption that they would not sell our security short. Dubai has

cooperated with us in the war and deserves to be treated respectfully.

By all means, let’s do due diligence, get briefings, seek answers to all

relevant questions and assurances that defense officials and the

intelligence community were involved in the examination and approval of

this transaction.

In other words, let’s make a judgment when we possess

all the pertinent facts. Until then, all we can offer is heat and

little light to the discussion.”
