In a voice vote earlier this week, the House of Representatives approved a major change in US policy governing weapons sales. In an overwhelming vote Tuesday night, the House adopted a '’code of conduct'’ for countries seeking to buy US arms.

Under the proposed code, US military assistance and arms transfers could be provided only to nations certified by the president as democratic, protective of human rights and not involved in any acts of armed aggression.

Joining us this morning is one of the sponsor’s of the measure Representative Cynthia McKinney, a Democrat from Georgia. We’re also joined by Caleb Rossiter, the director of Demilitarization for Democracy.
