Sale of U.S. seaports raises security concerns for Connecticut senator
The sale of six U.S. seaports, including those in nearby New York and New Jersey, to an Arab company are raising security concerns for a Connecticut senator.
After touring the Bridgeport Ferry Terminal, U.S. Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT) is calling for President Bush to reassess the sale of the ports even though the sale does not include the Bridgeport Ferry Terminal. However, the terminal?s proximity to New York and New Jersey has Senator Dodd concerned about security.
The president defended the sale saying people don't need to worry about security, but Dodd is still asking the president to take a second look.
