Burned by the flames he lit and stoked.

That's how William Grieder sees this whole Dubai port-owning business, and he makes a good point. We've been living in the post 9/11 world (whatever the fuck that means) and Bush is by his own admission, the 'war president'. So having stoked these fears and shoved the coals into the furnace of the popular imagination, Bush is somehow surprised when people are taken aback that a country with actual ties to the 9/11 hijackers and Al-Qaeda might take an owning control of a major portion of our infrastructure.

Bush, meet pitard. You built it. Prepare to be hoisted upon it.

Update: If you want to see the silliness of the White House's response to this whole damn thing, look no further than here. It seems that on the one hand the White House is actually saying that those who are alarmed by the port deal are harming national security, and on the other hand they're saying they wouldn't be opposed to delaying the deal.

I know consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, but this is a little much.
