If that means what I think it means then that's wonderful. Ever since 9/11, if you want to get something done in this country the way to do it has been by pitching it as a matter of national security. Hell, we got the damn Patriot Act rammed down our throats because we were scared of terrorists. Something like this may contain language targeted at national security, but I can also see it used as a justification for a return to protectionism and an attempt to forcibly rebuild our manufacturing base.
