Are Americans ready to give Dubai a break? The answer will come soon, with President Bush having approved a deal to allow a Dubai-owned company to control nine U.S. plants that make turbine blades for tanks and military aircraft. The company is Dubai International Capital, which is buying British company Doncasters Group. At least this time, Congress has been briefed and the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States appears to have handled the review process with care. Maybe in the weeks since the Dubai ports deal collapsed, the White House has figured out how to close this one without looking soft on terrorism.
