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?
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?
Can we impeach the traitor now? Or is this Bush’s fault?
So before we finish our protest banners, when did this shared info program start???? Before 2008????
I don’t know what the ruling class is cooking up, but it would be nice if they held a war and no one showed up.
The MILES system was old in the mid-80s. Can’t believe the russians didn’t have something similar long ago.
But you see it’s only fair, after all he’s been giving it to China for years! If by giving it you mean a quid pro quo of the monetary variety.
The EXEMPT do not care unless they make money from it.
They EXEMPT YAWN and laugh that Cummings, Issa, and
Holder are in charge.
The EXEMPT already armed al Qaeda with 20,000 MANPADs
to murder innocents in the future
all in exchange for a gang-rape snuff video
of a US Ambassador watched in the White House.
The EXEMPT are disgusting to have enabled this treason.
Wait till the libs find their internet is screwed because he gave that away as well. All the lib hipster backpack toting, Peruvian hat wearing, Occupy Wall street terrorists who constantly have their faces in ipod,ipads,iphones, and they find they cannot organize their next trust fund sponsored attack because the UN mandated internet access shall be censored in certain areas at certain times.
We still had to use blanks when using MILES.
The result was that nobody liked to shoot because blanks were so darned dirty and made your rifle a pita to clean.
Perhaps he gave it to them in spite?
Maybe we should have given it to the tire burning morons in Kiev?
MILES gear isn’t High Tech and honestly, if they want that crap they can frikin have it already....
Gateway Pundit is grasping at serious straws and looking like complete and utter FOOLS for doing so.
Just the tip of the iceberg as far as tech transfers from the US to Russia...
Whatever it is, Obama will talk his way out of it with the help of the not so MSM. It doesn’t matter becasue it’s Obama, right? They re-elected him, right? So it doesn’t matter.
Funny. Reminds me of Pooty Poot keeping the Super Bowl ring of the Patriots’ owner.
It seems to be the new technology, at least Special Operations grade equipment.
‘Combat Training Centers (NTC, JRTC, JMRC).
As of July 2006, the latest version of MILES was MILES XXI, provided by Lockheed Martin.
As of July 2008, the latest version of MILES was MILES IWS, provided by Cubic Defense Applications.
As of July 2012, the latest version of MILES is MILES IWS2, provided by Cubic Defense Applications.’
Now we’ll see if the “rally round Obama” neocons will be found on this thread.
