Obama to free up technology exports

Written by Nick Farell


US does not have as much these days
The Obama administration is about to ease rules on exporting sensitive technology.

President Barack Obama wants to consolidate some enforcement activities into one agency and develop a list that better defines which product or technology sales would be restricted. Over the years federal agencies have developed "very different control lists, with agencies fighting over who has jurisdiction.

This meant that decisions were delayed, sometimes for years, and industries lost their edge or moved abroad. Obama said goal of the new system was to "build higher walls around the export of our most sensitive items while allowing the export of less critical ones under less restrictive conditions."

Technology outfits claimed that if the change of rules goes ahead it could result in billions of dollars of extra dollars in sales. It could mean that it would be legal to export a second hand Commodore 64 to Iran.

rasist?

middle east is has today a view which the fake 911 and media created,there is no bad about it except their weird laws and lifestyle which is the same to their thoughts about our life style,and i don't even have a US lifestyle so it's im neutral but that's why those guys hate america because your government falsely accuses the whole freaking middle east,they actually defend them selfs and talibans are nothing but freedom fighters for their own cause, they're farmers with no foreign knowledge at all,media spreads false propaganda about terrorist networks which do not exist or are fueled by the world money elite it self.
