Doktor_Zhivago: As someone who works in the electronics manufacturing industry this is Grade A stupid.We deal with ITAR shiat all the time. The government give you a giant list of things that are ITAR and/or UCNI controlled, things that require date/lot control so you can trace every single part on each board back to where it got made;loads of rules and regulations in order to not introduce counterfeit bullshiat into the supply chain, profit off conflict minerals from central Africa, or teach China/Iran etc how to make your sweet missiles. You follow the rules for those things or you go to jail. Its not a particularly difficult thing to follow. Is the shiat i'm working with on the list? if the answer is yes, you don't send it outside the US without a permission slip signed in triplicate to cover your ass. Do you think some things on the list are silly? Yes. Do you follow the law anyway because its the law? Yes.A bunch of geniuses at Honeywell there. Geniuses.
Nemo's Brother: But Snowden is the traitor for going to Russia. Bill Clinton gave away all of our secrets decades ago. The damage has long since been done.
