    I tried to do a search on the Internet for the inventor of this technology but could not find the correct answer, so I will have to go through my old books. I am developing a fondness for REAL Books because they cannot be altered. Once the book is printed and sits on your Book Shelf, the words cannot be made to change. I cannot say the same thing for the Internet. Our information is constantly being re-written. It's worse that Ray Bradbury's book, Fahrenheit 451.

    How does Russian "own the night" if they depend on stolen US technology.

    SKOLKOVO: Where Hillary sold US technology to Russia.

    ...Hillary encouraged and enabled American and European investment in Russia, particularly in high-tech firms. A key role was played by the Skolkovo Innovation Center, a sprawling complex in Moscow’s western suburbs that was established in 2009 as Russia’s answer to Silicon Valley. With encouragement from the State Department, American companies jumped aboard. Cisco pledged $1 billion of investment in Skolkovo in 2010, and Google and Intel quickly joined the bandwagon. All three “just happened” to be major investors in the Clinton Foundation too.

    This was the consistent pattern. As Schweizer explained, “Of the 28 U.S., European and Russian companies that participated in Skolkovo, 17 of them were Clinton Foundation donors” or had hired former President Clinton to give speeches. How much money these Skolkovo benefactors gave to Clinton, Inc. cannot yet be determined, but Schweizer concluded that it’s somewhere between $6.5 million and $23.5 million, with the proviso that since the Clinton Foundation has yet to reveal all its donors, the true figure could be much higher.

    "the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back, because, the Cold War's been over for 20 years."...Barack Obama...looks like Mitt Romney was right all along.

    Sometimes the U.S. sets up bogus technology so the Russians will spend millions and a ton of time trying to duplicate something that will never work.
