There is no indication as to when it will be completed or what defensive military items will be allowed to be exported - WorldnetDaily, alluding to Joseph Farah's G2 Bulletin.
The American source informed the decision was made due to "policy review".
G2 Bulletin mentioned that the review has been so "close-hold" that even the Defense Department, which also reviews license applications for national security reasons, was unaware of the action. The Department has been recommending approval of munitions license applications for Georgia.
"By law, the State Department has the lead in reviewing all munitions export license applications for "foreign policy" reasons. State could deny such license applications even if the Defense Department recommends approval on national security grounds," the article continues.
"The Obama administration is caving to the Russians," one U.S. official said. "It means that we're letting the Russians control U.S. foreign policy interests."
"Up until the Russian invasion last August, the U.S. was a major supplier of military equipment to Georgia, in addition to providing training. The equipment provided, however, was designed more for counter-insurgency and defensive purposes and was not intended to confront any Russian threat", the article concludes.
