Commercial Sales of Military Technologies, Hearing Before the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the Committee on Energy and Commerce, House of Representatives, One Hundred Eleventh Congress, First Session, June 4, 2009   [open pdf - 4MB]

From the opening statement of Bart Stupak: "Less than 2 weeks ago North Korea detonated a nuclear weapon during an underground test. North Korea is now threatening to test fire an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of striking Alaska. At the same time our Nation remains at war in Iraq and Afghanistan, and here at home we are faced with the threat of attack from Al Qaeda and other terrorist groups. In 2009, the world is a very dangerous place. Today we will examine two specific ways we may be allowing our national security to be compromised; domestic sales and illegal export of military and scientific technology overseas."
