Trump Allows High-Tech U.S. Bomb Parts to Be Built in Saudi Arabia

When the Trump administration declared
an emergency last month and fast-tracked the sale of more American arms
to Saudi Arabia, it did more than anger members of Congress who opposed
the sale on humanitarian grounds. It
also raised concerns that the Saudis could gain access to technology
that would let them produce their own versions of American
precision-guided bombs — weapons they have used in strikes on civilians
since they began fighting a war in Yemen four years ago.
