I think it's a bad deal because it potentially opens up America to further attacks. The United Arab Emirates has not always been an ally on the war on terror. It has only come to that position lately. We don't have a really good handle on their sympathies. What we do know is the UAE has been one of the primary crossroads for terrorists in the world.
