On Thursday, the UTC unit pleaded guilty to illegally supplying China with military technology and agreed to pay more than $75 million in penalties, in a major violation of U.S. arms control laws. The attack helicopter was powered by Pratt & Whitney engines, the same engines used on a civilian version. But the company admitted it had outfitted them with engine-control software modified for military use.
Notice how China didn’t even need a “spy”? Corporate technology transfers are plain and simply .. treason. Planned, intentional and coordinated and very affordable ($75 mil.) treason.. thrown blatantly in the face of the willingly unwitting, sympathetic, easily apologetic and perfectly illiterate public.
