As chairman of the Technical Advisory Committee described in "Kachajian's Rebellion," I thought your readers might like an update. The government still has not delisted wafering saws, nor is it giving Silicon Technology Corp. individual validated licenses to ship its products into the Eastern bloc.
At this point, I believe the issue has moved beyond the Pentagon's straw man of national security, or if it is right or wrong to sell to the Soviets, or the economic warfare that half the Administration would like to wage against communists.
Instead, the issue is the rule of law. The Export Administration Act says that if George Kachajian can prove certain facts, he should be allowed to sell his products in the Soviet Union. He has proved those facts. Why won't the Administration enforce the law by allowing Kachajian to get on with his business?
