Halliburton not on the short list to manage ports in place of DP World

That's too bad. I'd have loved to see liberals heads absolutely explode with conspiracy theories if Halliburton were to take over port management in DP World's place.

The list of U.S. companies most prepared to operate terminals at six ports DP World planned to take over is short.

SSA Marine and Maher Terminals appear to be candidates to operate ports in New York, Baltimore, New Orleans, Miami, Philadelphia and Newark, N.J., after the decision by DP World yesterday to end weeks of political controversy by divesting itself of the terminals.

Where's the fun in that?
