The Perfect Storm

Here in ‘Perfect Storm,’ investigative reporters Mary Fanning & Alan Jones follow up on their original December 2016 Occasional Paper for the Center, “What Could Possibly Go Wrong?”.  These are both ‘Must Read’ papers that present alarming  information about the Middle East ports management firm, Gulftainer. With connections to Saddam Hussein’s nuclear mastermind & the Russian company that markets the Club-K shipping container missile launch system, Gulftainer should be under intense scrutiny–but isn’t. Instead, Congress, the media, and the supposed U.S. government watchdog agency, Committee on Foreign Investment in the US (CFIUS), all looked the other way and allowed Gulftainer access to Port Canaveral, FL with no questions asked. A “Perfect Storm’ indeed.
