Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Pacifica Radio had a gentleman on Wed. that said he was an investigative reporter and that the story he was working on involved US oil companies trying to buy larger stakes in UAE companies than was currently permitted (49 percent maximum at this point).  He was investigating this and believed that the ties between the oil companies and the administration were being used to allow the sale of port authority to Government controlledDPW in exchange for greater access to that countries large oil and gas resources.
