Ex-officials from the Pentagon are warning that newly tightened ‘Buy American’ rules that ask the government to buy U.S made only products could seriously hurt the military’s ability to buy technology which is often not necessarily made in America.
The issue was raised at the house hearing about Pentagon’s IT operations. The hearing took place one week after President Donald Trump revealed his Buy American and Hire American order.
This could seriously limit the ability to get the best weapon systems for the warfighters. The hearing mostly agreed on the fact that it could seriously hamper technology buying at the Pentagon.
