Democrat U.S. Senator Tom Carper of Delaware is assisting Middle Eastern seaports company Gulftainer in taking over U.S. strategic ports, threatening U.S. critical infrastructure and U.S. national security.

Senator Carper is closely tied to longtime U.S. adversaries Iran and the Vietnamese communist regime, despite the fact that Senator Carper served in Vietnam.

Gulftainer is intimately tied to Iraqi WMDs, Iran, and Russia. Senator Carper continued to push Gulftainer’s Port of Wilmington deal though the Gulftainer deal received no CFIUS National Security Threat Analysis.

Members of the International Longshoremen’s Association union in Delaware reached out to The American Report with deep concerns regarding the State of Delaware’s plans to bring Gulftainer into the Port of Wilmington.

Gulftainer showed its true colors in April 2020 when Gulftainer blockaded Wawa tanker trucks from delivering fuel to hundreds of Wawa gas stations across five north eastern states (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia) amid the Chinese coronavirus pandemic. Gulftainer then attempted to extort one million dollars from Buckeye Partners, the company that controls the fuel tank farm adjacent to the Port of Wilmington where Wawa loads hundreds of fuel tanker trucks each and every day.

Initially, Gulftainer received a 35-year lease to Florida’s Port Canaveral cargo container terminal under the Obama administration shortly after Gulftainer entered into a joint venture with Russia’s ROSTEC/ROSOBORONEXPORT, the  exporter of Russia’s Trojan Horse Club-K Intermodal Cargo Container Cruise Missile Launching System. While the Club-K looks identical to a standard commercial intermodal cargo containers that get delivered to every hamlet in America, it is actually an advanced military weapons system that can deliver nuclear, EMP, chemical, biological, and conventional payloads.


President Trump placed sanctions on Russia’s ROSOBORONEXPORT on the very day that Delaware’s Port of Wilmington approved Gulftainer’s lease of the entire port.

Both Jafar brothers were investigated by the U.S. government. The Pentagon placed Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar on the CENTCOM Operation Iraqi Freedom ‘Blacklist’ with orders to capture or kill Dr. Jafar. The U.S. Treasury Department and three Congressional committees investigated Hamid Dhia Jafar and his company Crescent Petroleum, a Gulftainer affiliate, for his ‘Oil-For-Superweapons’ program that financed Saddam’s and Dr. Jafar’s WMD programs.

Governor Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania and Governor Phil Murphy of New Jersey, both Democrats, are either unaware of the national security threat presented by Gulftainer, or they are terrified of taking the issue up with Congress. Representative Duncan Hunter (R-CA) objected to Gulftainer leases and the lack of a CFIUS National Security Threat Analysis, and the full weight of the U.S. government went after Representative Hunter.

Governors Wolf and Murphy wrote a May 28, 2020 letter to key leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives that conspicuously omits the name Gulftainer, urging them to reject Senator Carper’s shipping bill that favors a “foreign-owned entity” over American-owned port operators.

Senator Carper’s lousy proposed deal not only has Middle-Eastern-owned Gulftainer taking over  America’s international shipping along the Delaware River, cutting out American competitors in Philadelphia and New Jersey, but also has the American taxpayers picking up the tab, paying Gulftainer’s bills.

Exactly who does Senator Carper work for? Because it does not appear to be the American people.

U.S. Representative Brendan Boyle of Pennsylvania, a Democrat, and U.S. Representative Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, a Republican, also wrote a letter to Members of Congress strenuously objecting to Senator Carper’s efforts to assist Middle Eastern ports company Gulftainer.

Representative Fitzpatrick was formerly a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney with the Department of Justice and was an FBI Supervisory Special Agent. Fitzpatrick, as an FBI special agent, served as an al-Qaeda interrogator while embedded with U.S. troops in Mosul, Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar operated his ‘Al Jazeera’ “yellow cake” uranium processing facility near Mosul that produced uranium tetrachloride feed material for Dr. Jafar’s electromagnetic isotope separation (EMIS) secret uranium enrichment facilities, according to Science Magazine. Dr. Jafar’s carefully-hidden EMIS facilities provided weapons-grade uranium fuel for Saddam and Dr. Jafar’s ‘Arab Bomb’ program.

Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar, as one of Saddam’s three Ministers of Military Industrialisation, was heard on the captured “Saddam Tapes.” On those tapes, Saddam was heard musing about ‘terrorists’ detonating a nuclear weapon in Washington D.C.
