Our Government is Dysfunctional

Think Progress (click here for more) reports that Donald Rumsfeld, Secretary of Defense, was unaware of the sale of 6 major US Ports to a company owned by the rulers of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a nation with ties to terrorism. In addition, they had this update...

Donald Rumsfeld, as Secretary of Defense, is a member of Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States. As such, he was one of the people who, according to the Treasury Department, unanimously approved the sale on February 13. How could do that when he didn’t even find out about the sale until last weekend?
