Well, At Least The Ports Are Secure

Remember the big controversy a few weeks ago over the proposed ports deal with the United Arab Emirates? Many people were opposed to it out of concern that an Arab company could be easily infiltrated by Al Qaeda, and terrorists with inside information about security could then smuggle nasty things that go BOOM into the United States. The deal was eventually scuttled, and worried Americans breathed a sighed of relief.

Now comes word that the UAE is planning to build a freakin' spaceport so they can start launching privately funded rockets into space.

Great. So all we have to worry about now is terrorists dropping nasty things that go BOOM on us.
