You people never cease to amaze me with your ignorance and conspiracy theories. Clinton did not transfer any technology by allowing U.S. satellites to be launched on rockets owned by other nations. It's a cost saving measure for the companies owning those satellites.<quoted text>
Clinton most definitely sold us out, big time! Here is one example. There are other huge sellouts as well.

"Congressional critics, both Democrats and Republicans, say the Chinese may have had access to sophisticated U.S. satellite and missile technology during an investigation into a failed launch attempt on a Chinese rocket in 1996.
And Republicans have accused Clinton of jeopardizing national security by granting the waiver to please a high-dollar Democratic donor"
And, the fact that the Chinese have had "access to sophisticated U.S. satellite and missile technology" has nothing to do with Clinton (or any president, for that matter) it has to do with espionage and people like Snowden who steal trade secrets.
