That's precisely my point - where was the stink when P&O bought management back in June 1999? Or maybe late 2001 when we realised our national security is a joke? The only concrete reason that seems to be surfacing here is that DWP is Arab and P&O is British. Most of the "reasons" are specious:<br><br>- 2 of the hijackers were from UAE. So how about Johnny Walker Lindh? Or the British citizens who went to Afganistan to work with Al Qaeda - can you not level the exact same criticism against the US and the UK?<br><br>- the UAE banks were used to finance the hijackers....along with american banks, swiss banks, german banks, etc, etc, etc.<br><br>If you search hard enough in any company, you can probably find someone who will do something nefarious for a price, you just have to find that price that they'll sell out for and decide if you're willing to pay it!! And anyone with a mind set to it can get an undercover operative into a company with a minimum of preparation, and no questions asked - the media are managing this all of the time - Wasn't it just last year one of the UK press got a reporter into the inner circles of Buckingham Palace, just to show how easy it was and how lax security is. I would imagine that security for the Queen is many times more stringent than that applied to Bob the Docker.<br><br><br>- This is gonna get pretty interesting. <br>- Define "interesting". <br>- Oh, God, oh, God, we're all gonna die..
