Hearing on Ports Deal Resumes on Capitol Hill

Its day two of Congressional review of the controversial ports deal. U-S Congresswoman Deborah Pryce of Upper Arlington chaired a hearing on Monday to shed more light on a deal to sell management rights at some U-S Ports to Dubai World Ports of the United Arab Emirates.

Pryce says her committee hearing was necessary because of the public reaction to the proposed ports deal. "These witnesses admitted that they were stunned by the intensity of the public reaction. And that is something I think somebody should have seen coming." says Pryce.

Pryce says the United Arab Emirates has connections to terrorism that should be taken into consideration.
