ITT to Plead Guilty In Export Case
ITT sold night vision technology to the Chinese. This is technology that has given our troops a real advantage over adversaries for years.
ITT broke the law, sold the Chinese the technology and will pay a $100 million fine. Well, isn't that nice?
The company didn't make the decision. People did. Companies don't make decisions, the people who run them make the decisions. The people who decided to sell this technology to a foreign nation have endangered the men and women who fight to protect us, and they should spend the rest of their lives in prison.
I don't care how big the fine is (and compared to what ITT rakes in every year, it ain't much). That's not the right result.
