2 thoughts on “On The Stupidity Of ITAR”

  1. While I wrote more on this at Jon’s site, I do have one observation to make. Removing ITAR is probably the easiest low lying fruit out there for smoothing legal obstacles to US space development of any sort, commerce, public, or otherwise, and it has a profound impact on a variety of industries, not just aerospace. It harms everyone indirectly. For example, probably has high costs of compliance, it destroys US competitiveness in aerospace, and prevents the US from hiring the best of the world.

    Yet there has been no move since its creation to reverse this abomination. What is going on?
