Skip to comments.Obama to loosen rules on technology exports
Posted on 08/30/2010 10:36:58 PM PDT by pissant
The Obama administration is overhauling the decades-old rules for the export of sensitive military and other technology, jettisoning what industry groups criticize as an antiquated "Cold War" set of regulations for a more streamlined approach.
After a year-long review by officials at the State, Defense and Commerce departments, President Obama is scheduled to announce plans Tuesday to consolidate some enforcement activities in a single agency and develop a clearer list of products whose sale is restricted.
U.S. export controls cover tens of thousands of products and services and are overseen by three agencies. It is a system U.S. businesses say often leaves them hamstrung, even when it comes to selling less-sensitive items that are readily available in other industrialized countries.
Over the years, different parts of the federal government have developed "very different control lists, with agencies fighting over who has jurisdiction," Obama said in remarks released by the White House and scheduled to be delivered by video to an export conference Tuesday. "Decisions were delayed, sometimes for years, and industries lost their edge or moved abroad."

i presume he’s giving it to the muzzies in return for paying for the presidency?
This is exactly what Bubba did: arm our enemies.
Why not liquidate now? It’s not like America will be around much longer anyway. When you see the White House furniture out at the curb, you’ll know he’s finally ready to turn out the lights.
Furniture will stay. The marxist illegal occupant will be out on the curb.
Man, if we lose our technology edge on the battlefield we are really in trouble ! I would pay good money to hear the conversation of our Generals out on the golf course nowadays.
And here I thought things like night-vision goggles were so our guys wouldn’t get killed. OUR GUYS.
Or miniaturization technology.
Or Star Wars.
You’d think 0bama himself plans to bomb us to smitherines.
The Kenyan Clown seeks to destroy our country.
What irony. Loosen rules on technology export and tighten rules and regulations required to drill for oil in the gulf. Is it not becoming obvious what this guy is doing. He is intent on knocking this great country down so we are “equal” with every other two bit country in the World. Can’t have one group being better than everyone else. Might hurt someones feelings.
Many FReepers have been saying this since zer0 appeared on the scene. The frustrating part is that most decent, honorable people simply refuse to believe that anyone - much less a POTUS - would want to see America's power, influence and prestige severely diminished.
But they're learning.
Is it just me or is EVERYTHING this man is doing wrong? Seems like no matter what “action” he takes, it is exactly the opposite of what I think it should be. Usually there are one or two presidential decisions you can go along with, but EVERYTHING this guy does is on the opposite side what would be “correct.” It’s amazing ... every issue, every move ... all, not just a few but all, wrong!
It’s not just you
