    U.S. Eases Rules on Exporting Military Technology to Secure Role as World’s Leading Arms Dealer

    The United States is relaxing controls on military exports, allowing some U.S. military supplies to flow to nearly any country with little oversight.

    “The whole globe, basically, is going to get an easier deal in terms of getting access to U.S. military technology without very many questions asked,” says arms and security expert William Hartung of the U.S. easing controls on military exports.

    “The Obama administration, more than even the Bush administration, bought into the industry’s arguments,” Hartung adds. “Countries are getting license-free spare parts, surveillance equipment, and so forth that can then go onto a human rights abuser or terrorist group,” Hartung explains.
