NOW the US is beginning to worry about *Sovereign Investment Funds*-Undue Political Leverage?

Title: US Fears Overseas Funds Could Buy Up America. I find it hard to believe no one in the Bush administration has thought about this up till now. No, ONLY when it looks like the bottom will fall out of this country financially is this becoming an issue. (If US is suddenly getting some righteous fears, how about they start by STOPPING leasing assets to foreign entities?)

For years, the Bush administration has shrugged off concerns about the trillions of dollars that the United States owes to China, Japan and oil-producing countries in the Middle East, arguing that these debts give no undue leverage to foreign governments.

But at a time of global financial instability, the administration has started to worry.

U.S. concerns - like those of many European policy makers - focus on a growing but little understood trend of foreign governments converting their debt holdings into "sovereign investment funds" that are acquiring assets in the United States and elsewhere - and could influence the markets when they buy and sell.
