In August 2009 US President Barack Obama initiated a comprehensive review of the US export control system.6 It remains unclear when this review will be completed or what impact it will have on US transfers of arms, military equipment and related technologies. In its first year in office, the Obama Administration showed little sign of departing from the preceding Administration of President George W. Bush regarding the supply of arms to states long-regarded as allies in regions of tension or involved in efforts to combat international terrorism. The USA continues to restrict transfers of technology to key allies (e.g. technology associated with the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, JSF, combat aircraft programme). By early 2010 the US Congress had still not ratified defence cooperation treaties agreed in 2007 with the UK and Australia.
