Posted on 03/29/2014 7:01:59 PM PDT by Linda Frances
The Obama administration has been secretly giving Russia free Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System (MILES), a tactical force-on-force trainer, which uses a system of lasers and dummy ammunition to simulate ground combat for soldiers.
The secret operation was exposed this week by members of Congress that discovered it in the process of reviewing the Fiscal Year 2014 budget and the proposed Fiscal Year 2015 budget request. It turns out that the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) has been providing the Russian Federation with the Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System (MILES), the federal legislators say. The U.S. military uses MILES for tactical force-on-force training because it has a system of lasers and dummy ammunition to simulate ground combat.
Its a crucial, military-grade technology thats similar to a laser tag available in some commercial markets, according to one of the outraged lawmakers (Oklahoma Republican Jim Bridenstine) that helped uncover the scandal. Bridenstine, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, has joined forces with Ohio Republican Mike Turner, Chairman of the House Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces, to demand an end to the program. Along with about a dozen other House colleagues they penned a letter to Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz, who oversees the agency carrying out the irresponsible military equipment transfers to Russia.
The Obama administrations planned supply to the Russian Federation is a grave mistake given the recent invasion of Ukraine launched by Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin, the legislators point out. It is difficult to imagine a worse time to provide military-grade technology employed by the U.S. Marine Corps, Army, and Special Operations Forces to Russia than when it has illegally invaded Ukraine and is violating the intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty, the letter to Moniz says. To make matters worse, it is our understanding from the budget documents that the Department has been, and continues to propose, providing this technology to Russia free-of-charge.
More treason. Who will answer the call for JUSTICE?
If not now when?
No big deal. Obama’s just being flexible.
Seems like I saw this one or two days ago, right here on FR!
So would this qualify him for a High Crimes and Misdemeanors indictment?
So-called “hi tech” MILES gear is frustrating. It get’s jammed on...or off. Not following the rules means you can “spray” entire squads/platoons dead, and it’s maintenance heavy.
I think our troops would do better with paint balls.
I searched for it. Maybe under another title.
Outdated training gear provided for training nuclear security troops under the terms of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. It’s in the United States interest to see to it that Russian nukes aren’t stolen.
It’s been posted before and you are late to the party, but rant on along with the others who haven’t bothered to find out what is going on.
Can we impeach the traitor now? Or is this Bush’s fault?
Not congress (opposite of Progress) cuz they don’t have the balls to do it!
Hang. Them. All.
If this doesn't what does? I mean what in the blue hell does it take for Speaker Boehner to grow a pair of testicles and do his damn' job to start Impeachment Proceedings??
FFS, Obama's chopping our military down, making us defenseless AND giving our #1 enemy high-tech military weapons?
What the hell does it take to get this POS Traitor out of office?! Revolution?????????????
Clear and concise, thank you for the elucidation.
But it’s not worth reading the comments, just a bunch of rants from people who are not interested in learning that this report is a bunch of sound and fury. MILES gear is provided to nuclear states under provisions of the Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty and START - something done long before Obama came into office.
Look at the bottom left box titled Performance Evaluation Demonstration Breakout Sessions
Those who want to continue looking foolish by ranting on about something that they clearly know nothing about are free to do so. It is Free Republic.
So before we finish our protest banners, when did this shared info program start???? Before 2008????
“giving our #1 enemy high-tech military weapons”
