Ending Overseas Outsourcing

The atomic bomb...made the prospect of future war unendurable. It has led us up those last few steps to the mountain pass; and beyond there is a different country.
J. Robert Oppenheimer (1904 - 1967), U.S. nuclear physicist

I am not usually a supporter of anything the Bush administration does, but I think they may have stumbled upon an idea to stem the tide of companies outsourcing jobs overseas to India.

The administration’s rewarding Pakistan for allowing Osama bin Laden to slip through by agreeing to sell F-16 fighter planes to India’s longtime adversary. A few well placed bombing runs by Pakistan and runaway labor to India is a thing of the past. It might be the first thing Bush has done right.
