The newest absurdity is prohibiting foreign ownership of critical US infrastructure.

Nobody worried about British P&O managing American ports. Nor could a prohibition be enforced, given the multitude of instruments such as trust arragements, proxy, street name holdings, and so on. Neither is a prohibition desirable: why discourage foreign investment in, for example, AT&T?

And how about domestic ownership? Could the perfectly American CAIR Foundation buy American ports? Could American Arab citizens who happen to be fervent Muslims manage port security or, for example, nuclear power plants? Could American Arabs buy P&O and retain DP World as consultants?

It makes sense to drop the political correctness and say that, yes, people are not equal, that, yes, the enemy has a face. That terrorism is Islamic and that we suspect Muslims particularly, foreign or American.
