Russia is still an enemy of the USA, if for no other reason than its Iran policies, including opposition of oil sanctions, and that it "regrets" Iran's nuclear ambitions. Further, Russians were spying on the USA. So any act to further their interests to give them aid is treasonous.
President Barack Hussein Obama told Congress on January 4, 2012, that he is prepared to share US missile defense secrets with Russia. Obama said restrictions aimed at protecting top-secret technical data on US Standard Missile-3 (SM-3) velocity burnout parameters "might impinge" on his constitutional foreign policy authority. How Obama can interpret foreign policy in such a way that it may harm this country is beyond me. Perhaps readers can supply an answer.
And all of this comes as he announces reductions in the military and its budget. When making his announcement, Obama said his plan is "smart, strategic" and sets priorities. Nowhere in his smart, strategic, prioritized plan is there any mention of him giving our strategic secrets to the Russians. So much for keeping faith with our troops, military families and veterans.
US officials are planning to provide Moscow with the SM-3 data, despite reservations from security officials who say that doing so could compromise the effectiveness of the system by allowing Russian weapons technicians to counter the missile. Further, there are concerns that Russia could share the secret data with China, as well as rogue states such as Iran and North Korea, to help their missile programs defeat US missile defenses. The thinking is that this knowledge will help alleviate Russia's fears that the planned missile defenses in Europe would be used against Russian ICBMs. Obama is willing to give away technological secrets highly desired by Russia (and especially by China) in a liberal pursuit of a thirty-year-old grudge against former President Ronald Reagan's policy of "peace through strength."
