Foreign Military Sales (FMS)
“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 State must first review and approve them. DSCA forwards all FMS cases to PM/RSAT, which is responsible for ensuring that they are properly reviewed within the Department for consistency with U.S. foreign policy and national security objectives. In close coordination with other Department bureaus and offices, PM/RSAT officers provide recommendations to PM leadership on whether to approve the potential sale of military equipment to foreign governments through FMS.”

“The Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program is a form of security assistance authorized by the Arms Export Control Act (AECA), as amended [22 U.S.C. 2751, et. seq.] and a fundamental tool of U.S. foreign policy.”
“Secretary of State determines which countries will have programs. Secretary of Defense executes the program.”

” . . . . WikiLeaks has blown the lid wide open on donations to the Clinton family, exceeding $10 million from Dow Chemical alone.
It isn’t novel news that Clinton’s long-running ties with agrochemical giants have flourished. The relationship between Monsanto and Hillary Clinton is well documented. However, in the latest revelation, via WikiLeaks leaking a memo from Douglas Band – a top Bill Clinton aide – a relationship between Dow Chemical, Coca Cola and other large organizations and Clinton is a “pay for play” arrangement.“

How did a kid from Hope, [actually Hot Springs], Arkansas, without
wealth and powerful friends, find the knowledge to muster and facilitate
the most powerful political machine on earth? I may have a clue.
Most people have ruminated on how and why Bill Clinton continues to be
protected and even empowered by a seemingly omnipotent invisible force.
Is it God, perhaps? Or even luck? But whatever it is, it seems to work
in ‘strange and wondrous ways’. Might we think about it?
An increasing few believe that a very conscious ‘network’ of interests,
who have long advanced and fostered Clinton’s career, now seem resolute
to protect him at almost any cost. It also seems that their ability to
forge public opinion is awesome.
It is a profound mystery, why the elite of America’s leaders, inside the
press, the academic world, and even the staid foreign policy
establishment, continue to protect him – even after he has been publicly
exposed, and proven to be criminal, in law, and morally bankrupt as
well. What can he say to Mrs. Broaddrick’s charges with any degree of
credibility. So, he says nothing and the elite media charade continues
unabashed. . . .
