The New York Times and the Washington Post are reporting that American Corporation ITT a major manufacturer of night-vision goggles used by the American military, pleaded guilty yesterday to illegally sending classified military information to other nations, including China, and agreed to pay a $100 million penalty.
More This is the largest conviction of a big military contractor for violations of arms export controls, and ends a five-year federal investigation in which the government found ITT to have enlisted a front company to “set up an end run” around laws limiting the transfer of military technologies to other countries.
AAPPundit says: This company should be charged with treason. ITT is not just corporate idiots they are much more. They are corporate traitors. This defense contractor jeopardized US Soldiers. I say before the Democrats Review Guantanamo's Future send the executives of ITT for a little interview about how they made these decisions to sell our technology to China, which was an un-American act of Corporate treason.
From Katrina, to Iraq, to China these corporations have been taking us to the cleaners.. It appears that no one is prepared to curb government contractor abuse. I guess I understand, insider critics lose Jobs.
