Do You Have Any Last Words Before Paying Your Fine?

ITT, a top manufacturer of our military's most sophisticated weaponry, has put in jeopardy US wartime tactical advantages by sharing some classified technology with foreign governments.

"There was a culture at this company where they actively and willfully worked to circumvent the U.S. laws to increase profits," said a Justice Department spokesman.

For this behavior - selling military secrets to a foreign government - ITT will suffer the swift and harsh punishment of...

A hefty fine.

Well, not exactly swift punishment. This all took place in March of 2001. They just got around to issuing the fine a couple of days ago.

Not exactly harsh, either. The fine will be suspended for five years.

That ought to teach them.

A FINE?!!!

What happened to a firing squad?
