Federal Antiboycott law

In 1977, Congress passed a law creating the Office of Antiboycott Compliance that is within the Department of Commerce. The Federal Antiboycott law "prohibits U.S. persons from taking certain actions in support of an unsanctioned foreign boycott against a country that is friendly to the United States."

Oops!

When Bush took his stance in support of the Dubai Ports deal did someone maybe forget to inform him of this rather important piece of information?

It's not rocket science folks. The President is a "US person" who is in fact taking action to support the US doing business with a company that has a long standing and definitely unsanctioned boycott against Israel, who is without a doubt a close friend and ally of the US.

Now how do you suppose he'll get around this?

Executive Order anyone?
