The Pentagon directive said restricting contract bids was necessary to protect essential security interests. WTO rules allow for exemptions based on national security.

am i alone in thinking we have become the neighborhood bullies. what happened to a free market system, fair trade, just because we have the biggest stick do we really have the right to tell the rest of the kids on the playground what to do and when and where to do it. maybe its just me but i think we are making a basic mistake every parent knows not to. don't do what i do do what i say. maybe i am just ranting but it seems we have a double standard for the rest of the world. is this contracts only to those who sent troops right, i think it goes against the very notion of what we claim to follow as a republic, and yet we wonder why so many are throwing rocks at us.
