All the talk about the Dubai ports deal and securing our southern border has reminded me of the charge raised during the presidential campaign about our lax port security. Apparently only 5 or 10 percent of the containers entering our ports are checked. I thought John Kerry (of all people) scored some points saying the president wasn't doing enough to secure the ports. But have I heard either party since then make a serious effort to redress what looks like an obvious security problem? Nope.
