This recorded video feed is from the April 16, 2008 hearing, "National Industrial Security Program: Addressing the Implications of Globalization and Foreign Ownership for the Defense Industrial Base," before the U.S. House of Representatives, Committee on Armed Services. From Ike Skelton's opening statement: "Today, we will examine in greater depth what reasonable measures need to be taken to protect U.S. national security. Industry is changing as the economy globalizes. How rapidly are issues of foreign ownership, control, and influence impacting the defense industry as a result? Will new investment vehicles like hedge funds and sovereign wealth funds require us to change how we determine what constitutes foreign ownership? Can the National Industrial Security Program keep up with the scope and pace of these changes? Is the Defense Security Service staffed, trained, and equipped to implement the policy?" Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Committee Chairman Ike Skelton; Toby Sullivan, Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Counterintelligence and Security; Kathleen Watson, Director of the Defense Security Service; Bill Schneider, Chairman of the Defense Science Board, and Ann Calvaresi-Barr, Director of Acquisition and Sourcing Management at GAO.
