"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"
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.

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.

Saddam would have certainly taken advantage of this weak link.
But babies fighting for their lives after surviving an abortion and then being denied medical attention...well, Obama seemed to think that as long as it was supposed to die anyway, voting to allow physicians to provide medical care wasn't really necessary.
Voting present on that kind of bill was the same as voting no.

The Bush tax cuts were the only thing that got the economy up and running again after 9/1l, Bozo.

Oh, and let's not forget, during the Clinton administration, it was ISRAEL that was found to be selling hi-tech military equipment to China. "Including military technology developed by the US, and which Washington expressly forbids from being exported to China." "Seriously undermining US efforts to limit the sale of advanced weapons to the Chinese."


"Those sold by Israel are said by specialists to include technology for the Python - the Israeli version of the US Sparrow air-to-air missile - and technology developed for the US-financed Lavi jet, which the Israelis cancelled some years ago."

"The US is also concerned that Israel may have passed on technology for the Arrow anti-missile missile, a joint US-Israel project, which is based on the Patriot missile used in the Gulf war."

"James Woolsey, the director of the CIA, told the Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs:'Peking probably hopes to tap Israeli expertise for co-operative development of military technologies - such as advanced tank power plants and airborne radar systems - that the Chinese would have difficulty in producing on their own.' He said the Chinese wanted to interest the Israelis in using Chinese facilities for launching satellites."

Hmmm...seems it was Isreal that was behind the Clinton China Satellite Waiver. Why am I not surprised.
