So Who Did Review the UAE/Ports Deal?

Secretary of Defense Rumsfield is supposedly on the Committee on Foreign Investments in the United States, which supposedly unanimously approved the deal allowing a United Arab Emirates company to take over security at six US ports on Monday, February 13th. Problem? Rumsfield now claims he just heard about the deal this weekend. So how did he vote for it? Or did they just not invite him to the meeting? Maybe the invite is in his email. (That's a joke; Rummy doesn't have email.)

This gets fishier and fishier.
