July 18, 1986

Defense Secretary Caspar W. Weinberger, praising the partnership between government and the defense industry, called for renewed support of "Star Wars," known as the Strategic Defense Initiative, and attention to technology export controls. Weinberger, addressing the St. Louis World Affairs Council in Washington, also warned that the Pentagon remained "determined to purge defense work of any practices that are improper or illegal and to suspend or blacklist contractors who fail to fulfill the public trust." The Pentagon the day before suspended Litton Industries from receiving new contracts because of a 321-count fraud indictment.
