Safe Cruise

Project Safe Cruise Press Release: See www.projectsafecruise.blogspot.com & details below. Leave a message if you have experienced incidents involving poor security & safety practices of cruise lines. Hearings are scheduled; we will provide them to Congress. We must act to insure passenger safety. The current lack of safety & security is not acceptable especially after 9/11. On 5/12/05, we were on the Carnival Destiny near Aruba when an elderly couple disappeared without a trace.

Government could save $50 billion per year by having two shifts of white collar employees work each day. Office space costs $50,000/year for each employee yet we only use space 30% of time. We can no longer afford to have banker's hours for all. With over 2 million federal employees this cost-free paradigm change could avoid lay offs/furloughs and reduce pollution.

The UAE:

- was one of three countries in the world to recognize the Taliban as the legitimate government of Afghanistan (which King did mention)

- has been a key transfer point for illegal shipments of nuclear components to Iran, North Korea and Lybia.

- according to the FBI, transferred money through their banking system to the 9/11 hijackers- was not, according to the Treasury Department, cooperating in efforts to track down Osama Bin Laden’s bank accounts(Hat tip to ThinkProgress for the initial investigative work!)

Another interesting piece of information that has gotten barely any noticeable play on Fox, or anywhere for that matter, was reported in the New York Times last week:
"In mid-January, President Bush nominated a senior executive of Dubai Ports World, David Sanborn, to run the Department of Transportation's Maritime Administration. Mr. Sanborn had been running the company's operations in Europe and Latin America."
