The illegal export of U.S. technology to foreign adversaries poses a significant threat to U.S. national security, and the DHS is working tirelessly to prevent it. However, this task is difficult as the technology is often smuggled out of the country, making it challenging to monitor and prevent its spread. Once in China, the technology is further transferred to Iran, where it is used for developing sophisticated drone technologies, which puts the U.S. at risk.
Jim Mancuso, an official from the Global Trade Division of Homeland Security Investigations, highlighted the seriousness of this issue by stating that U.S. technology has been found in recovered military equipment in China, Iran, and Russia. This indicates that these countries are illegally acquiring technological resources from the U.S., which Mancuso emphasized must be stopped immediately.
Mancuso underscored the significance of this threat by stating that it is part of a broader picture of foreign powers posing a threat to U.S. national security. This ongoing issue requires primary focus and commitment from U.S. agencies and officials to combat effectively.
