Open Source and the military in the UK

I read this morning on BoingBoing that the UK and Australia have demanded that software used on jets purchaced from the US become open source. If the US refuses the demand made by Britian the order will be canceled. The Joint Strike Fighter project is backed by a group of nine nations, Australia has refused to put in any more money unless it has full access to the technology.

I wonder what congress thinks about open source and national security...
