What happened to protecting US strategic interest?

"How would you feel if, in the aftermath of 9/11, the U.S. government had decided to contract out airport security to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the country where most of the operational planning and financing of the attacks occurred?" So begins the alarm call being sounded by The Center for Security Policy over plans to turn over the management of six of the Nation's most important ports to a company controlled by a foreign power.

To this add Presidents Carter and Clinton ceding control of the United States built Panama Canal to a Chinese controlled company and an unwillingness to develop domestic oil reserves and you have to ask "What happened to protecting US strategic interest?" In a time of global war against an unconventional enemy it only seems prudent to jealously, even violently, guard any and all points of strategic interest.
