AP: Pentagon Halts Sale of F-14 Parts

"It was the prudent thing to do" said Jack Hooper, Defense Logistics Agency spokesman for the Pentagon.
From Reuters: The Pentagon's move took effect on Friday, and came after congressional criticism of security weaknesses that gave buyers for Iran access to the aircraft parts. The agency did not disclose details of those incidents. It formerly held liquidation sales of surplus parts.
This, a full nine days after the Associated Press reported that Iran and China had been found to purchase used American Military equipment at auction.
