“Foreign Military Sales are one of two methods through which a country can purchase new military equipment from the United States; the other is Direct Commercial Sales, which are managed by PM/DDTC. FMS is a government-to-government program through which the U.S. Government sells conventional military weapons, equipment, and services to allied and friendly nations to assist them in meeting their legitimate defense requirements. Although the Department of Defense, through the Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA), is responsible for implementing individual FMS cases, the Department of Statemust first review and approve them.

They must have a relationship with the aerospace companies they buy all those jets from. Easy to spy that way I would imagine.

I saw a comment someone made that in Iran revolution the suddenly-anti-US Iranians had a hold of all this armament we gave them to use against us… and same may happen in Saudi Arabia.

Even then there appear to be as many or more women speaking out. I guess you mean my obsessing with Trump?
