China and Iran are the most frequent international thieves getting their hands on classified U.S. military technology, according to documents obtained by Judicial Watch under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

“In October 2008, the Department of Justice announced that criminal charges had been issued against more than 145 defendants in the previous fiscal year. Approximately 43% of these cases involved munitions or other restricted technology bound for Iran or China,” Judicial Watch said.
