DP WORLD EXECUTIVE NOMINATED FOR PRESITIGOUS US GOVT POSITION

Dubai, 24 January 2006: - Global ports operator DP World today welcomed news that one of its senior executives, Dave Sanborn, has been nominated by US President George W. Bush to serve as Maritime Administrator a key transportation appointment reporting directly to Norman Mineta the Secretary of Transportation and Cabinet Member.

The White House has issued a statement from Washington DC announcing the nomination. The confirmation process will begin in February.

Mr Sanborn currently holds the position of Director of Operations for Europe and Latin America for the Dubai-based company

Mohammed Sharaf, CEO, DP World said:
While we are sorry to lose such an experienced and capable executive, it is exactly those qualities that will make Dave an effective administrator for MarAd. We are proud of Daves selection and pleased that the Bush Administration found such a capable executive. We wish him all the best in his new role.

Ted Bilkey, Chief Operating Officer, DP World said:
Daves decades of experience in markets around the world, together with his passion for the industry and commitment to its development, will allow him to make a positive contribution to the work of the Maritime Administration. We wish him well for the future.

Mr Sanborn, a graduate of The United States Merchant Maritime Academy, joined DP World in 2005. He previously held senior roles with shipping lines CMA-CGM (Americas), APL Ltd and Sea-Land and has been based, besides the US, in Brazil, Europe, Hong Kong and Dubai during his career. He has also served in the US Naval Reserve.

Mr Sanborn is due to take up his new role based in Washington DC later in 2006.

16. I wonder what kinds of prison suits we'll get....jumpsuits or two-piece?
Stripes or Bright Orange?
Cotton or a Polyester Blend?
Do you think it'll be fun like in Hogan's Heros? Or brutal like in Schindler's list?

Of course, I'm being sarcastic. But these people are really starting to freak me out and it kind of makes me wonder what they have planned for us.

8. i'm sorry for being so dumb
but am i the only one who doesn't know what the hell is really going on with this whole deal other than that it really really stinks badly. I see this massive machine in motion that appears that no one can hold back and, right now, i'm completely confused at why this is happening. Is this some sort of blackmail going on? All of the sudden the UAE company gets a top spot and they get 6 of our ports and for what reason to benefit the bush gang? I know it is rotten i just can't find out why, other than some really shady and fukt up stuff is going on....

Someone please enlighten me...
thanx

9. Who owns that company
Do we have a money trail on it yet, initial investors, that sort of thing. Some Bush pioneer has a big chunk of change in it, that's clear.

There is NO United States anymore. Not even US corporations. It's all the New World Order with a handful of fat fucks controlling everything.
