They aren't concerned with whether it's in the best interest of the United States or not. They are concerned with what is best for their companies. If the United States eventually falls, they will just move their company to whatever country is left standing. Politicians, who receive campaign contributions from these companies along with lucrative consulting deals when they leave office, don't really have the best interests of the United States at the top of their list either.
    All correct and one of the few areas where bi-partisanship reigns. Don't expect any change regardless who you support for President, Senate, or House.

    Pretty much true. Congress is the one that eventually OK's these deals and members of Congress have the most to gain. Presidents are usually well off enough after they leave office that they don't need the consulting jobs.
