This research discusses the proliferation of military goods through eBay. As documented by the Government Accountability Office, this is an important tool for understanding the wide variety of gray market transactions that allow for the diffusion of sensitive U.S. military goods throughout the world. Especially grave are the implications regarding the sale of commodities sought by China and Iran, two key economic and political rivals of U.S. national security interests. Implications surrounding the means and techniques of the diversion of these goods will be discussed, as well as the trend of posted items over a six-month data collection period.
