This is the most recent of a handful of articles published by WND on the subject of counterfeit parts entering the DoD supply chain. The article presents a summary of the case studies within the recent Senate Armed Services Committee Report, and offers a root cause that we don’t see in other media releases or editorial pieces…

“The problem of coping with potentially counterfeit parts stems from a policy decision that was made years ago during the Clinton administration to give priority to off-the-shelf components as a way to reduce cost. But they also were supposed to be tested and current investigations indicate that such testing isn’t always occurring.”
